Talk about bad timing. Morningstar started their recording career in the late '70s,
a time when disco was going strong and punk rock had just started to change the
rock 'n' roll landscape. Rock artists that started their recording careers earlier
in the decade (Styx, Journey, REO Speedwagon, e.g.) were changing to
a more pop rock sound in an effort to retain airplay. Record companies seemed to be
dropping artists who didn't fit into these categories. Morningstar was no exception.
After two great albums, Columbia/CBS and Morningstar parted ways. |
