Product Description

Amazon.ca

Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson and the rest of Heart are in good form in this solid if unspectacular 100-minute concert video, shot in 2002 in their hometown of Seattle. The sisters, of course, are a good deal older (and, in Ann's case, considerably, um, bigger) than in Heart's '70s heyday, and their bandmates have changed, but the group's sound, led by Ann's powerful vocals and Nancy's instrumental versatility, hasn't changed much; that's a good thing for those who revel in the likes of "Barracuda," "Magic Man," and other oldies. There are several brand-new songs here as well, and the ongoing influence of Led Zeppelin is readily apparent, not only in the covers of Zep classics like "Black Dog" and "The Battle of Evermore" but also in Heart's commingling of pastoral acoustic sounds and hard rock. And after 19 songs, even the most ardent Heart lovers should be well satisfied. --Sam Graham

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Excellent! July 15 2004
Format:DVD
Hey, I'm a Dream Theater fan and I can say the comment about Ann and Nancy playing two chord over simplistic songs is the most rediculous thing I've ever heard. I'd like to see this guy play Battle Of Evermore and Black Dog. By the way, Heart kicks Zep's butt on those songs. I've always wondered what Battle would sound like sung in tune... how nice it is. Anyway, I'm a musician and Alice In Chains, while excellent in musicianship, is simply no more difficult to play, nor is it any more complicated in song structure than Dog and Butterfly or Mistral Wind. This fellow should also note that Mike Inez came to AIC from Ozzy Osbourne's band. Not exactly alternative, or prog I would say, so the sellout statement further proves the musical ignorance of this person(who I have to admit is probably just trolling to see if future reviewers pick him a part... but, not all the people reading will know that and they deserve to see why his comments are utter nonsense.)
I'm only 27 so my Heart knowledge is backfill anything before thier self titled 1985 album. I didn't discover most of the older tunes until I had graduated from High School. I'm amazed that Ann sounds exactly the same after all these years. At 51 years old, I would say she is not just sounding great for her age, but sounding great for any age and I thought they both looked gorgeous.
But, that's not why people will buy this, nor why they will like it. At least 30 minutes of the DVD is just the two of them, no band, playing and sounding amazing. And I should note they aren't playing and sounding amazing as far as being women goes... they are playing and sounding as good as anyone. Period.
A friend loaned me his copy. I wasn't aware that they had been on a tour, been recording an album, and that now one has been released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proof that Rock 'n' Roll Still Has Heart July 13 2004
Format:DVD
The 2003 DVD release HEART: ALIVE IN SEATTLE is one of the best video recordings of a live performance of a rock band, and it is especially impressive when considering that it documents a recent performance from a band that has been playing kick-*ss rock for nearly 30 years (their debut album, DREAMBOAT ANNIE, was released in 1976).
The performance was recorded at the Paramount Theater in Seattle (Heart's hometown) on Aug. 8, 2002, the last gig on the band's 2002 "Summer of Love" tour. The response to the tour was tremendous, with longtime fans and newbies alike enthusiastically welcoming fronters Ann and Nancy Wilson and their new back-up band--an ensemble that includes former Ozzy Osbourne and Alice In Chains bassist Mike Inez and Lovemongers drummer Ben Smith. The tour was so successful, in fact, that they turned right around and toured again in 2003 (the "Alive in America" tour) playing basically the same song set. So fans who missed either or both of those tours can still experience that concert atmosphere vicariously with the HEART: ALIVE IN SEATTLE disc--but with much better "seating"!
The Wilson sisters made an excellent choice for the set list, which includes the band's very popular pre-'80s hard-rock standards like "Crazy on You," "Straight On," "Magic Man," and "Barracuda," as well as some great post-70s tunes such as "Alone" and "These Dreams." In addition, the band does a fantastic job on covers of Led Zeppelin's "Battle of Evermore" and "Black Dog," the Elton John ballad "Mona Lisas and Madhatters," and an old garage-band ditty called "The Witch.

4.0 out of 5 stars They're Back! May 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Friends, Amazonians & Heartmongers:
I have been a Heart fan for 15 years now.
And disappointed though I was with Heart's early 90's Brigade/Rock the House/Road Home releases (though Desire Walks On yielded a few gems), this dvd reconfirmed my belief in the band again!
(Apparently Ann has gone through extensive weight loss, of which this dvd has caught the beginning.
I've seen her recently, and she's looking pretty fine!)
However, it does seem to be true that Ann's voice sounds a bit more mezzo-soprano than the 1st soprano of her 70's hey-day, but she can still belt out those songs with the same soul power! Her voice even has a husky resonance that didn't always carry on her schreechier 70s recordings, though I love those too!
(I welcome anyone to try and coax Robert Plant anywhere near the high notes in this recording of Black Dog! NOT!
For even in LZ's Song Remains the Same-76, one can find him cheating on Black Dog's ENTIRE MELODY LINE!)
Nance is still the harmonious sister that we all know and love, and to be honest with you, this incarnation of the band KICKS in a way that the 80's line up NEVER did!
When I saw them perform a year or so ago at the Fleet Pavilion, they opened with "Kick it Out". Though this song was never a Heart favorite of mine, the guitars moved it into me! Later they broke out "Even it Up" into a crunchier form, at the end of which, Ann sang a high B with ease; a note I haven't heard her sing since 1985's What About Love.
(For those of you who don't know music theory, this is the high note in W.A.L.'s screaming ending, and the same note she sang on Cook with Fire's last E-chord. Yes, her almighty U.F.O. blues-run!) I was delighted!

Love this performance. In a recording studio or singing live, Ann Wilson puts most of the current female singers to shame.

For the most part the show was awesome, but they get in to some stuff that is a bit boring. The hit tunes of Heart are fantastic. I'd still recommend this DVD.
