In a new RollingStone.com interview, Ann Wilson discusses the box set, as well as some aspects of the band’s songs and history.

Regarding the maturity of Heart’s sound even at the start of their career, the singer explains, “We put in a lot of miles before we made a record.  Those early songs had been in our club set for a while and so we were seeing how people reacted to them.”

As for using the term “gypsy” in her liner-note recollections of the period when Heart first arrived on the music scene, Wilson notes, “That’s really what it felt like in those early days, to be out traveling the world in a group and bringing our music, living like a tribe and constantly moving on.

She also addresses the upheaval in the group during the 1980s, a time she calls “suffocating” even though Heart was experiencing its greatest commercial success.

Music became less understandable in the wake of the new MTV era,” she maintains, explaining that artists weren’t expected “to be anything other than a pop star, to not go deeper than that.’
