including “Finding My Way,” the fast-paced “Need Some Love,” “Take A Friend,” “What You’re Doing,” the southern rock vibe of
“In The Mood,” and their U.S. breakthrough anthem “Working Man” which was made famous by Cleveland, Ohio’s WMMS radio
station. Other tracks include the more melodic “Here Again” and the atmospheric “Before and After,” which gradually builds
into a burst of power chords and heavy guitar riffs.
