After splitting their backing musician gig with guitar legend Carlos Santana, guitarist Neal Schon and keyboardist/vocalist Gregg Rolie formed a new band--Journey. The band's 1975 self-titled debut is much more prog-rock/fusion-based than its later pop work, as the quartet jams out on long instrumental sections throughout. "Of a Lifetime" and "Topaz" are particularly noteworthy examples of Journey's early style.
