Balin is Marty Balin's 1981 album. Two top-40 singles were released, "Hearts" (a U.S. #8 hit, and also his biggest as a solo artist) and "Atlanta Lady" (U.S. #27). The album rose to #35 on the Billboard charts.
"Balin" was released by American Beat on CD in 2008 and by EMI in 2009. Both editions featured the shorter, single version of "Hearts" rather than the longer album version.
In March 2013 BGO reissued the album along with the follow up release "Lucky" on one CD. Mastered by Andrew Thompson the BGO edition is the only CD version that features the full length album version of "Hearts".
