Heart - Portland Oregon 1987

Well would you believe it, I first heard the band Heart on Radio Caroline, and guess when? Yep in the 1970's!

They may have been given air time elsewhere in the UK, but the option of suffering The Bay City Rollers, Donny Osmond and possibly Cliff Richard's to eventually here them does not require consideration.

This is Heart some time later, 1987 to be precise, however I must apologise I do not have the actual day or month to hand.

This concert is from the tour supporting the release of 'Bad Animals' - not one of their best albums as far as I am concerned, and yet, they are on sparkling form here, and with plenty of other Heart material, very, very good!

Set list:

1. Bad animals
2. Wolf
3. Barracuda
4. Nothing at all
5. What about love
6. Dreamboat Annie
7. These dreams
8. Straight on
9. Who will you run to
10. Never
11. How can I refuse
12. Crazy on you
13. If looks could kill
14. Bebe le strange
15. Alone
16. Rock and roll

Quality is excellent - first generation FM stereo recording.

Megaupload is just fine (anything but rapidshit!)

Please keep up the good work and remember to ignore ungrateful asshats whining about which host you use.
