Dreamboat Annie is the debut studio album by American rock band Heart. At the time, the band was based in VancouverBritish Columbia ; the Heart - Dreamboat Annie was recorded in Vancouver and first released My Happiness Forever - LaVern Baker - LaVern Baker Canada by the local label Mushroom Records in the summer of The album contains three commercially successful singles, two of which became staples on FM radio.
Producer Mike Flicker helped the group to polish their sound and obtain a recording contract with the label.
It was the first commercially successful album recorded there. Dreamboat Annie was released in Canada following the success of the second single. The album cover was designed by current Emily Carr University of Art and Design communication design instructor Deborah Shackleton Heart - Dreamboat Annie Heart's first radio success earned them a spot opening a Montreal concert for Rod Stewart in October The album sold an impressive 30, copies across Canada in its first few months.
Mushroom then formed a US division and released Dreamboat Annie on Valentine's Day in the Seattle area, where Heart's members had lived and played before relocating to Canada in the early s.
The group and their label then began working together to build success for the album city by city. The success of the album indirectly led to a break between the band and label. The first cracks appeared when the group tried to renegotiate their royalty rate to be more in keeping with what they thought a platinum band should be earning. For this Michael Fisher, who was Ann Wilson 's boyfriend at the time, stepped aside as de facto manager and Ken Kinnear was hired. Mushroom's tough stance in negotiations, and their opinion that perhaps the band was a one-hit wonder, led to Mike Flicker leaving the label.
He did, however, continue to produce for Heart. The relationship broke down completely when the label bought a full-page ad in Rolling Stone mocked up like a National Enquirer front page. The band had not been consulted and was furious with the double meaning of the caption.
Since Kool And Easy Version - Shades Of Black - Shades Of Dub label could no longer provide Flicker as producer as the contract specified, the band took the position that they were free to move to another label and signed with Portrait Records.
Mushroom insisted that the band was still bound to the contract which called for two albums. So, Mushroom released Magazine with incomplete tracks, studio outtakes and live material and a disclaimer on the cover. The band got a federal injunction to stop distribution of the edition of Magazine.
Most of the initial 50, pressings were recalled from stores. The court eventually decided that the band could sign with Portrait, but that they did owe Mushroom a second album. The band returned to the studio to re-record, remix, edit, and re-sequence the recordings.
Magazine was re-released in and sold a million copies in less than a month. Shelley Siegel, the promoter behind the "First Time" ad and vice president of the record label, died a few months after the re-release, and Mushroom Records went bankrupt two years later.
The episode had at Heart - Dreamboat Annie one more repercussion. Not long after the ad appeared, Heart - Dreamboat Annie radio promoter asked Ann about her lover; he was referring to Nancy, thus implying that the sisters were incestuous lesbian lovers.
The encounter infuriated Ann who Two Steps To Oblivion - Snakebite Whisky - Two Steps To Oblivion back to her hotel and penned the words to what became one of Heart's signature songs, " Barracuda ".
