The band didn’t have any top 40 hits until the Infinity album of 1978, when Steve Perry was hired as the lead singer. I was stationed at MCRD San Diego at the time and my roommate played that album so much, I didn’t want to listen to anything from this band until many years later.
Both of these were hit songs from the 1978 Infinity album.
This is the only hit song from the 1979 Evolution album.
This is the only hit song from the 1980 Departure album.
The 1981 Escape album is considered their biggest album of all time. There were four or five hit songs. I only like three of them.
The Frontiers album generated four hit songs in 1983. Again, I only like three of them.
The Raised on Radio album of 1986 had a few hit songs. I like two of them.
After a 10-year recording hiatus, they released the Trial by Fire album in 1996. Out of all the songs, I only like one.
I bought the 2008 Revelations album shortly after it was released. It was the first album featuring Arnel Pineda, a citizen of the Philippines, as the lead singer. Actually, my wife bought it for me while she was in the United States (and I wasn’t).
This band is a favorite in the Philippines and probably has been since the early eighties. A week will not go by without me hearing on or more of the hit songs somewhere.
