YEAR: 1995

LABEL: Capitol

TRACK LISTING: Dreamboat Annie (Fantasy Child), Dog and Butterfly, (Up On) Cherry Blossom Road, Back To Avalon, Alone, These Dreams, Love Hurts, Straight On, All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You, Crazy On You, Seasons, River, Barracuda, Dream of the Archer, The Road Home

IMPRESSIONS: This is a splendid, intimate live performance much in the "MTV Unplugged" style featuring Ann and Nancy Wilson returning to their hometown accompanied by a small chamber orchestra. The feel of the set is very warm and relaxed with a palpable sense of homecoming. Their slowed-down revamped version of "Alone" is the way the song SHOULD have been recorded originally and it's frankly the only version to listen to. The sisters obviously feel the same way because they've performed it this same way ever since.

MY FAVOURITE TRACKS: Dreamboat Annie (Fantasy Child), Dog and Butterfly, Alone, Straight On, Crazy On You, Seasons, River, Barracuda

GUEST ARTISTS: John Paul Jones (piano, bass, mandolin, producer)

FACT SHEET: THE ROAD HOME is Heart's 14th album. It was produced by former Led Zeppelin member John Paul Jones. The album is a live accoustic set from a 1995 club performance in the group's home town of Seattle, Washington. The set includes cover versions of Nazareth's "Love Hurts", Elton John's "Seasons" and Joni Mitchell's "River". A DVD of the show was also released.
