Their Transition into the 80's and Fame!

Journey found success and popularity with their first 2 albums with Steve Perry "Infinity" and Evolution" but the band makes a smooth transition combining Steve's true vocal talents, with the bands amazing instrumentals to produce smooth melodies including "Stay Awhile" and "Little Girl". Journey also delivers awesome songs that flow through every one of your nerves keeping you captivated and into every last second of the song including "Anyway You want It", "Where Were You" and "Line of Fire". This is a perfect album for anyone who wants to experience Journey at their finest!

And that is a shame. It's difficult - if not impossible - to find a rock record with more amazing, soaring, spectacular vocals. The band was on top of their game - their formula - lead by Neal Schon's guitar wizardry. But the pure, powerful, soaring vocals of singer Steve Perry make "Departure" a Journey record not to be missed.

The original unit, which was named in a contest on KSAN-FM in San Francisco, featured Schon, bassist Ross Valory, drummer Prairie Prince (replaced by Aynsley Dunbar), and guitarist George Tickner (who left after...
