Heart – Magic Man (LIVE @ ’76)

Published on June 14, 2018

 

“Magic Man” is a song by the American rock band Heart. The single was released in Canada in June 1975, and in America in 1976, as the second single from the band’s debut album, Dreamboat Annie. Written and composed by Ann and Nancy Wilson, the song is sung from the viewpoint of a young girl who is being seduced by an older man (referred to as a Magic Man), much to the chagrin of her mother, who calls and begs the girl to come home. In an interview, Ann Wilson revealed that the “Magic Man” was her then-boyfriend, band manager Michael Fisher, and that part of the song was an autobiographical tale of the beginnings of their relationship.

“Magic Man” became Heart’s first Top 10 hit in the United States, peaking at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Dreamboat Annie is the debut album by American rock band Heart. At the time, the band was based in Vancouver, British Columbia; the album was recorded in B.C. and first released in Canada by the local label Mushroom Records in the summer of 1975. It was released in the United States on February 14, 1976, through the subsidiary of Mushroom Records in Los Angeles. The album contains three hit singles which became staples on FM radio. Producer Mike Flicker helped the group to polish their sound and obtain a recording contract with the label.
