Description

Triumph is a Canadian hard rock power trio that was popular in the late 1970s through the 1980s. Between the band's 16 albums and DVDs, Triumph has received 18 gold and 9 platinum awards in Canada and the United States. Triumph was nominated for multiple Juno Awards, including Group of the Year Award in 1979, 1985, 1986 and 1987. Like their fellow Canadians Rush, Triumph began building their reputation across North America as a live band, peaking in the early to mid-1980s. The band was formed by Toronto music veterans Gil Moore (drums, vocals), Mike Levine (bass, keyboards), and Rik Emmett (guitar, vocals) in 1975. Just a Game is the third studio album by Canadian hard rock band Triumph, released in 1979. The album contains their first big hit, "Lay it on the Line" and the near Top 40 hit "Hold On". The vinyl LP version of the album featured a sleeve that folded open to reveal a board game (though later pressings just contained a regular vinyl sleeve without this.) According to a Rockline interview, the board game was Rik's idea, but Mike was the one who actually designed it and decided to make it impossible to win. The front cover of the album revealed a futuristic world where every symbol depicts a song featured on the album.
