Pieces of Eight

Pieces of eight
The search for the money tree
Don't cash your freedoms in for gold
Pieces of eight
Can't buy you everything
Don't let it turn your heart to stone

One of my favorite albums and one of the few I listen to nearly every track. The lyrics and arrangement of the songs almost tells a story throughout, almost. Great White Hope doesn't quite fit and I usually skip "Renegade" as it just seems out of place with the rest. Even the cover ties in. It is also one of the very few albums I have had on LP, 8-track, cassette and CD.

I was lucky enough to see them in concert a few years ago and although it wasn't all the original members it was still a great show.

Styx was the first concert I ever saw! Actually, Styx was the backup band for Blue Oyster Cult! I believe it was in 1976 or '77. It was a great concert. They sang "Lady" right before it became their first big hit! they've been fantastic and I've been a fan ever since!
