Description

The band's self-titled debut reached the UK top ten in May 1979 and went on to achieve Platinum status in the UK and was also a major hit in Europe and Australia. Also a huge live attraction, SKY released their second album in April 1980. SKY 2 was a fine achievement, featuring the hit single 'Toccata', and topped the UK album charts upon its release. For the band's third album, STEVE GRAY replaced Francis Monkman on keyboards, but the band continued their run of success as SKY 3 reached the UK top ten upon its release in March 1981. The albums SKY 4, SKY FIVE LIVE and CADMIUM continued the run of best-selling albums, following which JOHN WILLIAMS departed the band in December 1983. In March 1985, the album The Great Balloon Race was recorded in Australia and the UK, becoming another hit album. In 1987 they recorded their final album, which saw SKY arrange pieces composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. MOZART featured the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields conducted by Sir Neville Marriner and earned the group their highest ever US chart placing upon release. An Anthology compiles some of the highlights of Sky's recording career, with a track listing approved by the band, including the single version of KP II' (previously unreleased on CD). Importantly, the release features a bonus DVD of SKY's entire performance for the German TV show Musikladen in 1980.
