On this day in music history: December 21, 1985 - Heart, the eighth studio album by Heart hits #1 on the Billboard Top 200 for 1 week. Produced by Ron Nevison, it is recorded at The Record Plant in Los Angeles, CA and The Record Plant in Sausalito, CA from January - April 1985. After leaving their long time label Epic Records, Heart will sign with Capitol Records in late 1984. For their first release for the label, the band will be paired with producer/engineer Ron Nevison, best known for his work with artists such as Jefferson Starship, The Who, The Babys, and Led Zeppelin. During the sessions, Ann and Nancy Wilson will clash with Nevison over his production techniques, his insistence on recording material from outside songwriters, and with Capitol’s marketing of the band. Differences aside, it will end up being the Seattle, WA based band’s most commercially successful album. It will spin off four top ten singles including “What About Love” (#10 Pop), “Never (#4 Pop), “These Dreams” (#1 Pop) and “Nothin’ At All” (#10 Pop). After the initial release of the album, all of the singles will be significantly remixed and edited, and in some instances will include additional production and alternate vocals from the original LP versions. “Heart” is certified 4x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
