Hydra (1979)

Toto (CBS, 32222)

From the beginning of their career, the Toto boys were more popular in Asia and Europe than in the United States. Though Hydra was not as sucessful as Toto's first album, there are a couple of songs on Hydra that are truly loved by a lot of hardcore fans (99, Mama and White sister).

"It became more difficult with the second album Hydra. After a great start, the pressure of expectation on the group was intense. With your first record you don't give it too much tought; you play and the record company invests a lot of money in you and that's it. Afterwards, however, you have to define your course. The danger of getting stuck is particularly great if you don't stay on the ball." (David Paich)
