Great release from Heart showing their range, being able to go from a straight up, in your face rocker like Straight On to the wonderfully sweet and introspective title cut. The Wilson Sisters done good here.

This is my favorite Heart album and I bought it when I was 15 years old when it came out in 1978. The songs were enchanting and emotional to me and it has stood the test of time and sounds fresh and undated to this day.

Curious about if the guitar is detuned a little bit for Mistral Wind?

Certainly a favourite of mine. Great songs, ann Wilson's powerful vocals and Nancy with Nada one. Seductive voice has Nancy.

A haunting fairytale of a record. A pity that much of the Wilson sisters' proggy 70's output was overshadowed by their image-driven video releases from the 80's.
