Album: Infinity

Journey's fourth album, Infinity, was released in January 1978 on the Columbia Records label. The first album with Steve Perry as the lead singer. Perry and Neal Schon penned their first song together, "Patiently", which would appear on the new studio album. Other popular singles include "Lights" and "Wheel in the Sky", the latter written by temporary front man Fleischman. Journey's manager, Herbie Herbert, enlisted producer Roy Thomas Baker to engineer Infinity. This produced a layered sound approach, similar to his work with Queen, as demonstrated on tracks such as "Winds of March". In addition, Baker's method of stacked harmonies, notable on several other albums he produced, would become trademarks of Journey's sound. Baker achieved this by having each vocalist (usually Perry and Rolie, sometimes joined by Valory and/or Schon) sing each harmony part in unison. This had the effect of making three or four voices sound like more, and is notable on the songs "Feeling that Way" and "Anytime," which are often played consecutively on radio stations.
