Rick Springfield seemed to be on a fast track to stardom by 1974. He had it all: a batch of well-crafted commercially viable songs, a great voice, muscular musicianship and striking good looks. After scoring with 1972's "Speak to the Sky" single, he assembled his first solo band and hit the road in pursuit of his dreams. "It was a hedonistic couple of months of rock and roll and partying and no parents," remembers Springfield. "Songs came out of all that fire and sexual angst of being 25 and being on your own." But when Rick delivered his 'Springfield' album to Columbia Records, the label balked. It's hard rock sound and suggestive lyrics flew in the face of the pink and perky bubblegum sound they expected. In early '75, the 'Springfield' album was officially shelved. For almost 50 years, 'Springfield' has sat in the vaults... until now. Remastered from the original tapes and expanded with unheard live performances, 'Springfield' finally takes it's rightful place in Rick's catalog.
