Heart Live

Directed by Joe Thomas (eOne)

These days it seems like Heart are finally getting the credit they deserve. Ann Wilson still has a spectacular voice---sister Nancy’s no slouch, either---both notable as some of the only female larynxes regularly heard on classic rock radio. And though they’re happy to play the hits, they’ve got new music, most recently from their 2010 Billboard Top 10 record *Red Velvet Car.* More’s the shame this concert is so disappointing. Shot on video back in 2005 for Sound Stage, the PBS TV series, in front of a largely somnambulant crowd, the band sounds fine---turning into a dynamite Led Zeppelin cover act late in the running---but surely they deserve a better live document than this cheap-looking show.
