Of course now Dog & Butterfly is a rock classic, but in 1978 the Wilson sisters wanted to keep doing what they love and make a record that was significant in their career. They achieved their accomplishment with an idea to create an album that was half melodic and half cut your teeth Rock'n'Roll. Besides the radio hit "Straight On,"(#18 on the singles chart)they made an album that brims with sophisticated imagery and melodies that visit both camps on many of the songs. My favorite tracks would be "High Time," the Zeppelinish "Mistral Wind," and the title track, which is a masterpiece of a song as it combines string acoustics with Ann's poetry and fades into a serene backdrop of sound effects. A significant piece of the band's history was the end result, and as Ann Wilson said several years back during an interview on the Bravo network, "It was a bottleneck time because Creem magazine was starting to write about us and we had a Rolling Stone cover or two, and there was the question of women being relevant to rock and women being credible in rock. They weren't sure about us, and so that album really was the one where we felt like we had to push. We had to prove ourselves."

Heart - Dog & Butterfly (Live 1978)
A big misconception of Heart is that they are simply a hard rock band but they are so much more. Folksy ballads + Rock. Such a great combination.

Heart - High Time
Rehearsing while roller skating, while the stage is being set for an enormous show - this is the part the fans never get to see prior to the concert.
