Album Comparisons: Dog and Butterfly
Dog & Butterfly was Heart's fourth studio album, and the last to feature guitarist and founding member Roger Fisher. In keeping with the album's title, the first side of the LP featured more "rocking" numbers, while the second side tended more toward softer material and ballads. The single "Straight On" reached #15 on the U.S. Billboard charts, and was later released in a slightly different mix on the compilation album Greatest Hits/Live. Heart, along with Blondie, is one of my favorite bands of the 1970s and first part of the 1980s. I have every studio and live album from Dreamboat Annie through to Jupiter's Darling with the exception of the Christmas album, so I am naturally going to be a bit discriminating about the quality of any remasters.
