TOTO -TOTO IV 180g Vinyl LP

While already having a successful series of gold and platinum albums to their credit, Toto IV catapulted Toto into major superstar status as they accumulated a ton of Grammy Awards in 1983 including Record Of The Year ("Rosanna"), Album Of The Year and Producer Of The Year.

Upon its release in 1982, Toto IV flew to the top of the charts with the power rocker "Rosanna." Filled with its catchy hooks, brilliant vocal and guitar work from maestro Steve Lukather, and the familiar Bobby Kimball high energy duo lead vocals, this amazing single has become a classic rock staple. Adding James Pankow’s (Chicago) horn charts, and the funky piano work from David Paich, the song truly resonated with its huge audience, and broke wide open the importance of both the band and their great new album.

"It was due or die for Toto on the group's fourth album, and they rose to the challenge. Largely dispensing with anonymous studio rock that had characterized their first three releases, the band worked harder on its melodies, made sure its simple lyrics treated romantic subjects, augmented Bobby Kimball's vocals by having other group members sing, brought in ringers like Timothy B. Schmit, and slowed down the tempo to what came to be known as 'power ballad' pace. Most of all, they wrote some hit songs." – All Music Guide
