Formed as a spinoff from the Canadian group Fludd, Saga began in 1977 and continues performing and recording today. Signed to CBS’ new label Portrait, Saga only had one Top 40 hit in the United States – thereby qualifying for our coveted, weekly One-Hit Wednesday spot.
While the band had several AOR singles to chart on the Mainstream Rock charts such as “Wind Him Up,” “The Flyer,” and “What Do I Know”; the only Top 40 hit was “On The Loose” which charted at #26. It also was their biggest AOR hit and peaked at #3 in 1982.
“Wind Him Up” and “On the Loose” were both from their fourth album “Worlds Apart” that was released in 1981. It's an interesting keyboard based tune that should bring back some early 80s memories.
