Few rock bands can claim a successful three-decade spanning career; the feat is even more impressive for women-fronted rock bands. This is one of the many reasons the name Heart is a perfect choice -- it takes quite a lot of that not only to succeed but also to persevere. Often hailed as the "female Led Zeppelin," Heart dominated the classic rock realm with their debut album, 1975's Dreamboat Annie, hitting platinum status. Songs like "Crazy On You" and "Magic Man" from the debut as well as Little Queen's "Barracuda" remain rock staples today. In the '90s the sisters remained active, forming a side project called The Lovemongers and releasing a live Heart set.

Now in the new millennium Heart continues to beat with 2004's Jupiter's Darling. Their two-part Soundstage set spans their impressive career, touching on every era along the way. In part one, songs like the revved up "Crazy On You" share equal billing with the '80s ballad-tinged "These Dreams" along with new songs from their latest record. A rarely done cover of Led Zeppelin's "Battle of Evermore" makes this Soundstage performance especially compelling.

The band Heart has gone through many manifestations since its inception in the early '70s, but what keeps Heart "pumping" are sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson. Ann's voice is unmistakable, and Nancy's guitar playing is the perfect complement. On the second half of this Soundstage episode the sisters come back with a vengeance -- blazing through songs like "Barracuda" and "Even it Up." They then slow it down on the reflective "Dog and Butterfly" and "Alone."


Queen of Light took her bow
And then she turned to go,
The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom
And walked the night alone.

Oh, dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the morning light.
The dark Lord rides in force tonight
And time will tell us all.

Oh, throw down your plow and hoe,
Rest not to lock your homes.

Side by side we wait the might
Of the darkest of them all.

I hear the horses' thunder
Down in the valley blow,
I'm waiting for the angels of Avalon,
Waiting for the eastern glow.

The apples of the valley hold,
The seeds of happiness,
The ground is rich from tender care,
Repay, do not forget, no, no.
Oh,-------dance in the dark of night,
sing to the morning light.

The apples turn to brown and black,
The tyrant's face is red.

Oh the war is common cry,
Pick up you swords and fly.
The sky is filled with good and bad
That mortals never know.

Oh, well, the night is long
The beads of time pass slow,
Tired eyes on the sunrise,
Waiting for the eastern glow.

The pain of war cannot exceed
The woe of aftermath,
The drums will shake the castle wall,
The ring wraiths ride in black,
Ride on.

Sing as you raise your bow,
Shoot straighter than before.
No comfort has the fire at night
That lights the face so cold.

Oh dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the mornin' light.
The magic runes are writ in gold
To bring the balance back.
Bring it back.

At last the sun is shining,
The clouds of blue roll by,
With flames from the dragon of darkness
The sunlight blinds his eyes.
