On Dec. 1, 1975, Styx released their 5th LP “Equinox”. The album was the band’s first release for A&M Records and also marked the final appearance of original Styx guitarist John Curulewski (JC), who left the band following the release of Equinox.
The album’s biggest hit was the track “Lorelei”, which was Styx’s second US Top 30 hit ( “Lady” was their first). Another well-known song in the album was “Suite Madame Blue” (the title of which has a play on the word “sweet” to refer to the musical term of “suites”, i.e. unrelated instrumental successions) which was written about the upcoming Bicentennial of the US.
Do any of you still listen to this LP?
Happy 42nd Birthday to “Equinox”!!!!
