Over 40 years have passed since the Canadian prog rock band SAGA released their self-titled debut album in 1978. Since then, they have been an exceptional musical phenomenon and toured the globe various times while selling over 8 million albums worldwide. Their typical trademarks - synthesizer harmonies, breathtaking guitar riffs, complex keyboard arrangements and the charismatic vocals of frontman Michael Sadler - have made Saga one of the most influential acts in the history of rock music.
In 2021, earMUSIC will tribute SAGA's legacy with an excellent reissue series, including their essential material from 1978 to 2007. Released as a 1LP Gatefold Edition on 180g Virgin Vinyl, these five albums are the first drop of a series of beautifully recreated and enhanced SAGA reissues - must-haves in any fan's SAGA collection.
Saga stick to their guns on The Security of Illusion, and come up with a release that nearly managed to out-rock their Canadian competitor at the time, Rush.
