Release: Heartland – s/t

Release date: 09.09.2011
HEARTLAND originally were the brainchild of singer Chris Ousey (ex VIRGINIA WOLF) and guitarist Gary Sharpe (ex MONROE). Released in 1991 on A&M Records, HEARTLAND’s self-titled debut album is regarded as one of the finest releases in British Melodic Rock history. Produced by Jimbo Barton (Gary Moore, Queensryche a.o.), ‘Heartland’ includes the classics ‘Carrie Ann’, ‘Fight Fire With Fire’ and ‘Walking On Ice’. ‘Fight Fire With Fire’ was released a single in the same year. To promote the record, the UK rockers at the time of the release being went on the road together with Mr. Big. HEARTLAND are still active today, with a different line-up, but still centered around singer Chris Ousey. So far the band has released 10 studio albums and one best of compilation – most of them on a small British underground label. Due to legal reasons, the best of album did not include any tracks from this first record.
Therefore German label Yesterrock is even more proud to announce the reissue of the first ‘Heartland’ album, which has been a long time out of print and became a rare and expensive collector’s item. In cooperation with Universal Music Germany, Yesterrock is now re-releasing this sought after album. All songs have been lavishly remastered.
Tracklist: 1. Teach You To Dream, 2. Carrie Ann, 3. Don’t Cast Your Shadow, 4. Real World, 5. Fight Fire With Fire, 6. That Thing, 7. Walking On Ice, 8. Paper Heart, 9. Paradise, 10. Promises
Line-Up: Chris Ousey (Vocals), Gary Sharpe (Guitars), Phil Brown (Bass), Steve Gibson (Drums), Rik Carter (Keyboards)
