Song of the Week 1/13/12

Heart - "What About Love?"

I joined my old college friends Bruce and Hank on Saturday for our own Record Store Day, trolling through three of New Jersey's finest stores -- Tunes, Princeton Record Exchange and Vintage Vinyl. I love getting those $1 pieces of vinyl on trips like this one. And one of the goodies I brought back to Brooklyn was Heart's 1985 self-titled album. This album straddled the radio worlds I listened to religiously in 1985 -- the Top 40 sounds of FLY 92 and the rock tunes of PYX 106. "What About Love" was the first single, and both stations played it quite a bit. 27 years later the production might be dated, but Heart is still a fine collection.

Especially for a buck.
