I saw Henry McCullough and his band earlier this year at “Backstage at The Green” in Kinross.

However rather than post one of his own recording I have chosen to post this great cover version of one of his most famous songs by Over The Rhine

“Failed Christian” – Over The Rhine

Heart – Red Velvet Car

Heart return with their first new studio album for six years, however, those looking for a repeat of the 80’s style big hair big ballad songs can stay away.

Thankfully for me the music is closer to a return to the classic sound of their 1976 debut album “Dreamboat Annie”.

The album opens with the catchy tune “There You Go,” which will have you singing the chorus by the end of the song. The next few songs keep the rock feel and move gradually into the slower songs.

“There You Go” – Heart

“Wheels” is another song that just drives along like old style Heart.
Good as it may be you still can’t beat “Dreamboat Annie”
