When Heart released their debut album, Dreamboat Annie n 1973, it took them four years to follow up with the second album, Little Queen.
Little Queen reached Top 10 of the Billboard album chart and went triple platinum despite it being feared its sales would diffuse. It achieved, not only commercial success, but a record that is important in the history of music, and many of Heart’s fans considered the album as the band’s greatest work of art.
The album introduced as with the lead track and first single, Barracuda. A music that would shock everyone — filled with an undeniably amazing guitar riff and Ann’s vocals would soar up high reaching to heaven, and probably beyond.
