Considering her status as a driving force behind the worldwide success of Heart, it's surprising to see the caution with which guitarist-vocalist Nancy Wilson has approached her bow as a solo performer. Most bands spin off solo careers as often as--indeed, perhaps more often than--they change their shirts. But Wilson is old school and Heart has always gotten her best stuff. Just so, Live at McCabes comes off as a loose and low-key showcase for Wilson's new material, as well as a chance to show off her interpretive skills. The 13-song all-acoustic program is highlighted by well-chosen covers such as Paul Simon's "Kathy's Song," Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes," and Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You." Wilson also takes on three Heart classics--"Even It Up," "Angels," and "These Dreams"--while new songs such as the mandolin-driven "Half Moon" and the gorgeous "Everything" stand comfortably alongside her best stuff. "All we need is a campfire," Wilson quips at one point, an appropriate summation of this intimate, unpretentious, classy set. --Daniel Durchholz

Nancy's a world-class talent, and this CD showcases her vocal and guitar abilities very astutely. If you worship Ms. Wilson and her vast knowledge of music (not to mention her stellar musicianship), you will want this CD for your collection.
