Prototype for success...
...that didn't really come. But man, they sure deserved it! Great album!
Mine doesn't have a sleeve with it, but fortunately, the album wasn't damaged with all those holes in the back. :p
They were a six piece band from Alberta and this was their only album, released in 1983. It's quality synth rock and pop. Apparently, guitarist Dan Lowe headed the project. He invented the major innovation of Q-Sound. Vocals are performed by Doug Riley, who sounds excellent.
Jerry Adolphe - drums, percussion
Dan Lowe - guitar
Ted Alexander - keyboards, vocals
Doug Riley - lead vocals
Brian Island - bass, vocals
Brad Steckel - guitar, bass, vocals
Check out their fun song about the video game/arcade craze called "Video Kids":
