Gregg & Neal Schon founded Journey in 1974, he was the lead vocalist and keyboardist, but when Steve Perry enter the band, he lost prominence.
Unhappy with his role, Rolie left the band in 1980.
The 1st album didn't see the light until 1985.
This one, "Gringo" (later re-released as 'Hands of Time') his 2nd and much better in my opinion, includes monster star contributions.
Richie Zito produced, Santana played on "Too Late, Too Late", and Carlos & Neal Schon traded solos on "Fire at Night".
Colaiuta & Nathan East are the best rhythm section you can have, and Dan Huff, Pizzulo, etc...
Style similar to Glen Burtnick, Joe Pascuale, Rick Springfield.
No weak tracks here, lush production, killer songs.
A must have in any AOR collection.
