Billy Squier - The Tale Of The Tape FLAC album
Don't Say No is the second album by Billy Squier, released on April 13, 1981. It stands as Squier's biggest career album, including the hits "In the Dark", "Lonely Is the Night", "My Kinda Lover" and "The Stroke". The album hit the Top Five on the Billboard album chart and remained on the chart for over two years (111 weeks). The Stroke" was the first single, reaching number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100, and an even bigger hit at rock radio, hitting number 3 on the Mainstream Rock chart.
Billy Squier spent the late '70s watching his band Piper rise through the rock 'n' roll ranks, but after two albums with the band, he knew he needed something more, and by the end of the decade, he'd departed the group's ranks to begin his solo career. I wasn't getting any younger," Squier told Robert Haber. I had to take control of my albums and I couldn't do that without hassles within Piper. That album turned out to be The Tale of the Tape, a nine-track collection that heralded Squier's arrival as a solo artist when it reached stores in May 1980. Like a lot of new artists, he found it difficult to achieve immediate mainstream success, but the record's huge riffs, stomping beats and singalong choruses helped Squier make early inroads at rock radio that would benefit him in a big way later in the decade. It moved me up a notch on the ladder and it got a lot of airplay.
