Yes and the cool part is her tour was going just as the second single was entering the charts. In late April/May 1984 Love Will Show Us How entered the top 40.

At 13, I walked three or four miles to a Gold Circle to pick up that album when it was first released. I brought it home and was...underwhelmed. I had trouble hearing those upbeat, catchy hooks without Stevie and Lindseys voices in the mix. It took a while to get the album under my skin. But when it did, I listened to One In a Million, Ask Anybody, and Smile I Live For in heavy rotation. I still do.

I got mocked quite a bit for owning and listening to this album. My classmates and friends looked at me like I was some bird with uneven wings. It wasnt on trend. I didnt care.

Zayres was crazy good. I bought my bike there. I dont know about the ones where you lived but Zayres would let the kids ride the bikes through the store to test them out. It was a store that was a bit crazier than the other department stores.
Jbrownsjr. You are from Ohio. Did you have Hills Department Stores around you? That is where I bought my Christine McVie album and my stereo in 1983.

Don't remember Hills. We had Zayre's, Uncle Bills, Forest City, Higbee's, May Company, Dillards (later).

We had Hills in Indiana. They went out sometime in the late 90's, bought out by Ame's. I only remember Ame's because I bought deck chairs there when I bought my house in 2000(when I bought the chairs). Ame's didn't last long.

The only FM purchase I remember 100% is buying Live at K-mart, the day it was released.

AND that Bella Donna is the last 8 track I ever bought.
