Journey – Infinity (Very Rare Half Speed Remastered Release)
Hand signed by: Steve Perry, Ross Valory, Aynsley Dunbar, Jonathan Cain and Neal Schon.
Infinity is Journey’s fourth album, released in January 1978 on Columbia Records. It was the band’s first album with vocalist Steve Perry and the last to feature drummer Aynsley Dunbar.
Looking for a stronger lead vocalist, Journey briefly enlisted Robert Fleischman and even recorded a few tracks with him, one of which, “For You”, later appeared on the Time compilation album and Fleischman’s solo album Perfect Stranger. Fleischman was soon replaced by Steve Perry, due to musical and management differences. Fleischman would later resurface as the first singer of the glam metal band Vinnie Vincent Invasion.
In “Feeling That Way”, Perry dueted with keyboardist Gregg Rolie, who sings lead vocals on “Anytime”.
“Patiently” was the first song Perry and Neal Schon wrote together. Perry wrote the lyrics, in which he expresses the sadness of being on the road and away from home, while also expressing admiration for the band’s fans, and Schon wrote the music for the song. Other popular singles included “Lights” and “Wheel in the Sky”. The latter was co-written with temporary frontman Fleischman.
