Survivor's huge 1980s hit single 'Eye Of The Tiger' has tended to overshadow the band's body of work, despite them racking up a number of further hits, well known tracks and a string of classic albums. Their brand of melodic yet tough AOR was seen as a central pillar in a wave of hugely successful North American bands; acts such as Journey, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon and Heart were all lighting up the American charts at a time when solid, guitar based rock with enormous hooks and superior vocals was all the rage. No overnight success, Survivor's history, in various forms, dated back to the late sixties, with leader Jim Peterik forging a path to success by a single minded commitment to well written songs, supported by some of the best players he could lay his hands on; vocalist Dave Bickler and guitarist Frankie Sullivan in particular playing a major part in the band's developing sound. This, their debut album, originally issued in 1980, is an impressive work, containing all the elements that would later provide a springboard to international stardom. The songs are dynamic, richly constructed, well produced (by Ron Nevison of Led Zeppelin, Heart & UFO fame) and combine just the right blend of melody and muscle. Indeed, the track 'Youngblood' has been cited as the prototype for 'Eye Of The Tiger', one of a number of tracks that identify the band as superior craftsmen of a sound that later grew to dominate the American airwaves in the 1980s. A classic sound from a classic band. This is a Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition which includes a Bonus Track and features Jim Peterik, Dave Bickler & Frankie Sullivan. It has been remastered with sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology by Jon Astley (the Who, Judas
Priest, Eric Clapton etc). It is packaged with a 16 page full colour booklet - 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, rare photos and full involvement from the band
