The Firm (album)

The Firm is a studio album by The Firm, released by Atlantic Records on March 2, 1985. Songs ranging from the epic "Midnight Moonlight" based on a previously unreleased song by Led Zeppelin called "Swan Song", first tinkered with during the Physical Graffiti sessions, to the commercially successful "Radioactive". "Closer" employs a horn section to subtle effect. The cover version of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" featured some fine vocals by Paul Rodgers but was never released as a single.

The album peaked at #17 on the Billboard's Pop Albums chart.
