Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing of this album from the AOR/classic rock band. Styx’s feisty, straight-forward brand of album rock is represented best by “Blue Collar Man” from 1978’s Pieces of Eight, an invigorating keyboard and guitar rush – hard and heavy, yet curved by Tommy Shaw’s emphasized vocals. The classic album also includes “Renegade.” Led by the talents of Dennis DeYoung (vocals/keyboards), Tommy Shaw (vocals/guitar), and James J.Y. Young (vocals/guitar), Styx became one of the most successful FM/Arena Rock bands in the U.S. during the latter half of the ’70s and into the early ’80’s. With brothers Chuck (bass/vocals) and John Panozzo (drums), the band ruled the airwaves for a decade before their split in ’84. DeYoung’s distinct vocals and pop oriented material worked well against Shaw’s edgier material, garnering the band important airplay on FM and AM radio stations.
