REO Speedwagon continues to support 2007’s Find Your Own Way Home, which marked the band’s first collection of new material in more than a decade. The 10-track set, billed as a return to the power-ballad/melodic-Rock-anthem glory days, has spawned the Adult-Contemporary hits “I Needed To Fall” and the title track.
Go, Pat Benatar’s most recent release and 12th studio effort, surfaced in 2003. The album peaked at #187 on The Billboard 200.  Last summer, Benatar celebrated the 30th anniversary of her 1979 debut album, In the Heat of the Night. The set received platinum certification in the U.S. and its third single, “Heartbreaker,” became Benatar’s first radio hit, climbing to #23 on The Billboard Hot 100.
