Does anyone remember this band or this album? I can remember just about wearing out this cassette my junior year of high school! What a great band, just finished listening to this album for the first time in about 30 years and can STILL remember most of the lyrics!

Have a listen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyOdsRXxw5o

Me neither.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Reading up on them a bit, I'm neither surprised nor not surprised that I never heard of them. Back in the day, I generally listened to either my own record collection or FM radio stations that played a lot of album rock. So having not owned the record, I'm not surprised. Having listened to FM, I would think that I would have come across them. But I didn't.

I've been listening to the album. Standard rock from that era. Well done, but nothing exceptionally interesting.

Still, a fun diversion. Thanks for asking!

Same here. Never heard of them. I was a big fan of album rock and FM radio but somehow they stayed off my radar.

In '81, if they didn't produce a video for MTV, I probably didn't hear of them.

I'm shocked! Growing up north of Boston, they were played very regularly on FM rock stations. However since they are from the mid-west (Missouri) they never got a national following.

Thanks everyone for chiming in. I know I can't be the only one who has heard this band. They sold 200,000 of this album alone! While NOT great numbers, somebody must of heard of them.

PS I heard the song "Breakout" a couple of weeks ago on The House of Hair with Dee Snider. That's what made me start this thread.

Now please don't anyone say "Who's Dee Snider?"

I remember the band, but never bought any of their stuff.

BTW: 200,000 is not a great number? It's not "Frampton Comes Alive", but it's not peanuts, either.

Does anyone around here remember Peter Frampton?

Went to Peter Frampton concert in AC to see Arthur Stead on the Keyboard and met both of them back stage. One of my highlights in life!

Mark,

Thank you for the link. I played several of their songs and loved it. I love 80's music, however, I had forgotten their name. I remember hearing the 2nd song on the radio back in the day.

I just placed my order for their first three albums.
