In 1980, three-quarters into completing the recording, RAIL was offered a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to open for Van Halen's Women and Children
First tour. Once on the road, Van Halen became huge fans of RAIL and
extended their stay through the entire U.S. for a total of 47 shows. (At one
sound check, Van Halen saw Rail watching and started playing Rail's song
"Bandit". An exciting validation of their tour mates from the mighty Van
Rail was asked to continue onto Van Halen's European tour, but instead came
home and committed themselves to finishing their album.
ARRIVAL was released at the end of 1980 on Dynasty Records, their own
label. Having already proven themselves on a national tour without a record,
RAIL hit the road again and subsequently sold over 200,000 copies of
ARRIVAL, watching as their song "Hello" was added to radio playlists all over
the Pacific Northwest.
The high water mark for RAIL came in 1983 when their personal manager
Maria Cooper submitted a video of "Hello" (against the band's wishes) for an
MTV contest called the "Basement Tapes". Unsigned rock groups would
compete with their videos with viewers calling in to vote on their favorite.
RAIL's reservations about being thrust into the cattle call quickly evaporated
when out of 40,000 videos submitted worldwide, "Hello" wins the preliminary
rounds and eventually the Grand Prize of a recording contract with EMI
That recording contract yielded the 4-song EP, eponomously titled "RAIL"
produced by Night Ranger producer Pat Glasser. Included on the EP were
two songs made into videos -- "1-2-3-4" and "Fantasy". This was followed up
a year later by the self-produced "RAIL THREE". These two releases have
been combined into one big Special Edition CD named "Adio", a salutation to
the fans given nightly by Terry at the conclusion of their show.
Now, twenty years later, RAIL has re-released Special Editions of these
landmark albums, packed with bonus tracks and special enhance CD content
with videos, interviews and much more. These compilations have been
released as a tribute to all their great fans, friends and family who supported
the band for those exciting early years.
