ORDER YOUR COPY OF THE NEW AOR NOW!

The year is 1978. Journey had won a loyal muso following with their post-Mahavishnu fusioneering, but world domination would not hover within their grasp until they found the perfect lead singer to turn their improvisations into anthems. Enter one Steve Perry for their fourth studio album, Infinity. Suddenly, everything changed…

Bonus feature! On the road with Journey in Europe in 1979.

Plus! Diamonds, a 15-track CD featuring a glittering collection of melodic rock gems. Featured in our 24-carat stash: Vandenberg’s Moonkings, SILVERTUNG, Heart, Foreigner, Vanity Riots, Ajenda, Nashville Pussy, Drought…

• STARSHIP – Mickey Thomas returns with a fine new album and plans to bring his new-look combo to the UK.

• FOREIGNER – It’s 1977, and with disco at its height, and the punk and new wave hordes baying at the gates, it’s not a great time for rock. But it’s the perfect time for Mick Jones, Lou Gramm and co. to swoop in.

• KINGDOM COME – This is the story of their stairway to rock’n’roll heaven…

• GIUFFRIA – After Angel went their separate ways, keyboard wizard Gregg Giuffria was free to indulge his grand melodic visions. But then the label began to interfere…
