This one will get a bigger push...Sony proved that by nixing the import Jap versions of entering the US. I cannot recall that ever being done before. Their tour next summer needs all the promotion it can get and I doubt Sony, with Kalodner's help, is not likely to stand for anything less that Top 20.

All The Way I hear a lot on either Muzak or a/c radio. I think Higher Ground will also do modestly well at rock radio. January will tell when there is an official US single release.

>has undercut sales, Steve Perry not being in the band will scare some people

It didnt when it came to their tour. Augeri won a lot of people over.

But Styx on CMC and Kansas on Magna Carta hardly have the muscle that Sony has. Also, neither effort was all that good.
