Heartland was the pivotal album for the band. It marked the first time they took over production duties and, with two top-forty singles (�He Can't Love You� and �Lover�) it remained on the Billboard charts for over a year. It was also the first album that Kevin Raleigh emerged as a featured vocalist and featured a guest appearance by Clarence Clemons of The E Street Band on three songs. For many fans, this one is the band's finest outing.

All right, it's back and LINE LEVEL'S got it! LIVE IN TANGIERS is the 1998 Razor & Tie release of Michael Stanley acoustic shows. This 2-CD, 30-song set was, for the most part, recorded at the Tangiers Nightclub in Akron, Ohio (although several tracks are from shows in St. Louis, Missouri, Sandusky, Youngstown, and Cleveland, Ohio). Recorded with The Resonators, "Tangiers" features twenty-two Michael Stanley/MSB/Ghost Poets standards, interpretations of six songs by some of Michael's favorite writers, and two brand new songs. Michael said that this project was "a chance to strip the tunes down and see where they came from". All in all, it's a unique look at another side of Michael Stanley and his music.
