Well i really like Heart and always thought a boxset was long overdue....the wait will soon be over:

Heart: "Strange Euphoria:
HEART’s first-ever career-spanning box set!
4-disc, 50 song collection featuring:
-Previously unreleased demos and rarities
-Live performances & chart-topping hits
-New track-by-track commentary by Ann and Nancy Wilson
-DVD of the rare 1976 TV performance, DREAMBOAT ANNIE
AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE JUNE 5TH 2012

And also:

New studio release “Fanatic” will be out October 2nd 2012!
During an interview today with Ann Powers at SXSW in Austin, Heart revealed that “Fanatic”, the new album, will be out October 2nd 2012.

The new biography book written by Charles R. Cross will also be out in October.

After the dissapointing news that a European Tour scheduled for 2012 never materialised
it's good to see that there's a new boxset, a new cd and a biography scheduled for
release.

No, i was looking around for that too but no info yet. I hope it will contain plenty of unreleased songs (demos, outtakes or live recordings).

No tracklist released yet but here's some additional info which is giving me high hopes:

Showgoers at recent Heart concerts have been privy to the first details about ‘Strange Euphoria,’ the forthcoming box set from the group which is set for release on June 5, just in time for the band’s summer touring season.

A flyer handed out after the Heart show in New Kirk, Okla. reveals that the box set will contain 50 tracks featuring a mixture of previously unreleased demos and rarities (including hopefully, the long-desired original versions of the ‘Magazine’ album tracks), live tracks and of course, their “chart-topping hits.”

The four disc set will also include a DVD of the rare 1976 television performance, plus new track-by-track commentary from Ann and Nancy Wilson.

Longtime Heart associate and collaborator Sue Ennis is clearly, enthused about the box set and shared with fans, “Believe me, it IS too cool! So many unearthed rarities. A goldmine for Heartmongers who really know this band.”

Ennis previously tweeted about the set and said that she was “excited that fans will soon hear some favorite songs that never found a home on the major label records.”

I love Heart and great for anyone looking forward to a boxset but they have so many greatest hits/live packages that it would render it useless to most fans unless it has tons of demo/ rare live covers which it won't. Ann mentioned a few years ago backstage that there wasn't really too much that hadn't been released and what there was was either unfinished or not that great.

An old show on DVD sounds interesting depending on what is on it.

For me too. I have all of their releases up until "Jupiter Darling", most of which on vinyl.
So getting the old stuff + rarities on CD is fine with me.

Works great for you guys then which is cool. For myself, i have most of the albums that I would want to own on CD and even a few that I am not as crazy about. Trouble with a boxset for me even if I didn't own them is that the album tracks and not the hits are often my favorites on the albums.

Would have preferred the boxset be done in eras. One for the original era and another from then on.

The Sisters are not always so generous when discussing the original lineup and try to downplay the roles that the guys had. Nancy has described that lineup as a bar band which in a way is true as they started playing bars. But so did every band. What she left out was that they are also the lineup that created all the early hits and classics. I have heard many players play those songs since Fisher and the others have left and never really sounds quite right. Still good but not really the proper parts especially Fisher's.

That era has any hidden gems that I would like to hear. Could have packaged those albums together with a bonus disc or two of treats. But again those albums have already been released on CD with bonus tracks. Those tracks were not the strongest songs and it showed why they were not on any albums. Any other new songs would be even weaker. But at least guys like yourselves would get all the songs.

Bonus tracks from what I call the "video" era will be songs that again didn't make the album and were likely written by others. maybe I am wrong and their hidden gems come from there. But I am doubting that.

The DVD sounds great as does a biography if it is well written. I am curious why after all those years as being the sole male member left that Howard Leese left. My buddy was in one of those fantasy camp bands with him and he wasn't talking. Plays with Bad Company now and helps fill up their sound.

Updates from their Dutch fan site are very promising:

From http://www.heartlinker.eu/

"Update April 16th: from an Amazon email (thanx Seattleboy!): “Epic Records and Legacy Recordings proudly announce the release of Strange Euphoria, the first definitive career-spanning, multi-label boxed set retrospective chronicling the seminal American rock band Heart, personally curated by Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson. A carefully-considered anthology of biggest hits and best-loved songs set alongside deep catalog treasures, rarities, demos and live performances. Strange Euphoria consists of three compact discs, one DVD, and a bonus CD of five Led Zeppelin cover tracks in a deluxe box.”

Update April 14th: based on the publicly accessible ASCAP database, I’m making a wild guess that the following tracks might be included on “Strange Euphoria” (this is all HIGHLY unconfirmed, based solely on their very recent registrations at ASCAP, which could very well have a very different reason): “Nothing But Love”, “High Romance”, “Friend meets Friend”, “Love or Madness”, “Lucky Day” (written with Lisa Dalbello), “Skin to Skin”, “Through Eyes and Glass” (Ann Wilson & The Daybreaks!), “Unconditional Love”, something from “Almost Famous”, “Avalon (reprise)” and “Any woman’s blues”."

I had joked with a friend that they should have a Zeppelin disc included. And they are. Too funny. They do Zeppelin well and have always played Zeppelin tunes on tour. Those will be better than some of the "unreleased stuff".

They just have so many Greatest Hits and Live things already. Plus all the extras added to previously released Cds. Don't see much adding to the mix with unheard mindblowing stuff. But again if you don't have the albums on vinyl or CD then sounds good.

Those tunes mentioned are mostly outcasts from the "video" era and didn't make the albums and some even more recent. Not likely to make me run out and buy it but the DVD sounds interesting.

Excuse me Nancy? When exactly did you become a monster musician? Let's face it. What makes Heart special consists of the remarkable voice of Ann Wilson.

The best Zeppelin covers done by any band IMHO are done by Great White !

Great Zeppelin:A Tribute To Led Zeppelin is really really good.

Ok. but let's face it. She is the Tom Fogerty of Heart. Ann's voice is what made the band unique. Without her there is no box set and no career.

Nancy is a little more talented than Tom. Actually quite a bit.

But I agree that Ann's voice is the magic. No knock against anyone she has played with as not many other rock singers come even close.

Agree about Ann's voice, but it WAS Nancy who had the lead vocal on their biggest hit to date: "These Dreams".
