Heart - Bebe Le Strange [LP] (180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, insert, includes ''Even It Up,'' import)
Just before Heart recorded the album that became Bebe Le Strange, the band was faced with one of their biggest challenges. In October of 1979, founding member Roger Fisher was asked to leave the group (after the relationship between him and Nancy Wilson had already ended, and Wilson was now dating drummer Mike Derosier – while her sister Ann was still dating Roger Fisher's brother Michael, the band's manager). So, while Heart recorded their fifth LP in Seattle in Winter of 1979, it was their first album without Fisher's guitar playing or song writing.
Instead, Sue Ennis (a longtime friend of Ann and Nancy Wilson's) was brought in to help out co-writing tunes, and she also played some guitar and piano on the album. Collectively, Sue, Ann and Nancy called themselves "Connie" and their lyrics were more personal than ever before. Once Nancy Wilson and Roger Fisher had broken up, the creative powers in the band shifted. The Wilson sisters were now in full control. Originally released on February 14, 1980, the album contains the singles "Even It Up" and "Bebe Le Strange", and eventually certified Gold.
