THE SUCCESS OF the debut Loverboy album caught many folk off guard. It was, of course, a near picture perfect melding of fresh sounding hard rock and AOR, blessed with a contemporary sheen that separated them from the rest of the pack. It was no surprise their music - embraced by radio both at home in Canada and the USA - raced up the charts, selling like hot cakes, pushing the album to double platinum. They also hit the road, racking up hundreds of gigs and supporting many of the big names of the time, in the largest of venues. Best of all, this was a rags to riches story with the band fully embracing their new found glory. Reconvening in their home city of Vancouver, the band set about recording their follow up album, 'Get Lucky'. Enlisting the same production team as their debut album - that's Bruce Fairbairn with engineers Bob Rock and Mike Fraser - and recorded mainly in Mushroom Studios, followed by Little Mountain, the band crafted a solid follow-up, rich with melody and hooks to die for. Vocalist Mike Reno by now had carved out an impressive vocal identity, allowing the band to fully punch home the riffs and all the musical accoutrements that you would want. Released in October 1981, the album quickly climbed the charts, reaching #7 in the US. It was rich with quality material, such as 'When It's Over', 'Jump' and the epic 'Gangs In The Street'. But it was the album's 1st single, the lead-off track 'Working For The Weekend', which reached #2 on the Billboard chart, that cemented their reputation as a band with talent to spare and a depth that could not be denied.
