In June 1978, they released their self-titled debut album Saga. A modest success in Canada, it would eventually sell over 30,000 copies in Germany as an import. It also became a major seller in Puerto Rico, after a local stereo equipment store featured the guitar-keyboard duet of the band's single, "Humble Stance" as part of its radio advertisements. Two other songs, "How Long?" and "The Perfectionist" (a song about a psychopath, Ellery Sneed, who secretly poisons the attendants to a feast he has organized), also became local favourites. Their 1979 follow-up album Images at Twilight gave them their first charting single in Canada with the song "It's Time" peaking at No. 84 in the Canadian Charts. From the album, the songs "See Them Smile" and "Slow Motion" became strong radio favourites elsewhere. Saga's next album, Silent Knight was released in 1980 and included the singles "Don't Be Late" and "Careful Where You Step". In 1981, the band's 4th album Worlds Apart was released. The lead single "Wind Him Up", finally broke them into the Top 40, peaking at No. 22 on the Canadian Charts in January 1982. A second single "On the Loose" also fared well, and in December 1982, proved to be their breakthrough in America where it peaked at No. 26 on the Billboard Charts in March 1983. "Wind Him Up" became the second single in America, peaking at No. 64 on Billboard the following month. Eventually, Worlds Apart was certified Gold in the USA in 1983. The band opened for Jethro Tull on their North American tour in 1982. Following on the success of Worlds Apart, the band won the 1982 Juno Award for "Most Promising Group of the Year." A 5th album Heads or Tales was released in late 1983 and became another success. The lead single "The Flyer" fared well in Canada and also became their final U.S. hit, peaking at No. 79 on Billboard in November 1983. The follow-up single entitled "Scratching the Surface" became popular in Canada, peaking at No. 45 in April 1984. Their 6th album Behaviour was released in 1985, and included the singles: "Listen to Your Heart" and "What Do I Know?" (Charted #57 in Canada). --------------- Studio albums Year Album Canada Billboard 200 Germany Norway Sweden Switzerland Austria 1978 Saga - - - - 33 - - 1979 Images at Twilight - - - - - - - 1980 Silent Knight 42 - - 15 42 - - 1981 Worlds Apart 22 29 2 5 33 - - 1983 Heads or Tales 17 92 3 4 4 4 - 1985 Behaviour 39 87 2 6 4 3 29 1987 Wildest Dreams 77 - 18 11 8 17 - 1989 The Beginner's Guide to Throwing Shapes - - - - - - - 1993 The Security of Illusion - - 46 - 41 38 - 1994 Steel Umbrellas - - 65 - 29 39 - 1995 Generation 13 - - 89 - - 49 - 1997 Pleasure & the Pain - - 93 - - - - 1998 Phase 1 - - - - - - - 1999 Full Circle - - 44 - - - - 2001 House of Cards - - 34 - - 100 - 2003 Marathon - - 40 - - - - 2004 Network - - 78 - - - - 2006 Trust - - 23 - 37 - - 2007 10,000 Days - - 78 - - - - 2009 The Human Condition - - 91 - - - - 2012 20/20 - - 13 - 39 - - 2014 Sagacity - - 17 - - 32 - Charting singles Year Song US Mainstream Rock Billboard Top 100 Canada Germany 1979 "It's Time" - - 84 - 1981 "Wind Him Up" 24 64 22 7 1981 "On The Loose" 3 26 - 26 1983 "The Flyer" 19 79 - - 1983 "Scratching The Surface" - - 45 - 1985 "What Do I Know" 24 - 57 65 1987 "Only Time Will Tell" - - 93 - Live albums Year Album 1982 In Transit 1998 Detours - Live (2CD) 2005 The Chapters Live (2CD) 2007 Worlds Apart Revisited (2CD + 2DVD) 2009 Contact - Live in Munich (2CD or 2CD + 2DVD) 2011 Heads or Tales - Live (CD) 2013 Spin It Again!
