In the early '80s, all the holdover rock bands from the '70s either made the transition splendidly, becoming bigger than ever, or crashed and burned. Longtime touring warhorse REO Speedwagon was a fine example of the former category. Having spent most of the '70s as an opening band for bigger rock acts, the group scored one of 1981's biggest hits with HI INFIDELITY.
A perfect mixture of melodic hard rockers and sweet power ballads, the album finally broke REO commercially. Featured was one of their best known odes to heartbreak, the hit single "Keep on Lovin' You," as well as "Take it on the Run," and the harder-edged "Tough Guys" and "Out of Season."
