Lookin' for Trouble, Toronto's debut album, was released in 1980. Nearly every track on the album was released as a single and the band achieved heavy airplay for "Even The Score", "Don't Stop Me" and the title track.[2] The U.S. release uses different cover artwork and excludes the final track "Let's Spend the Night Together". The album reached Platinum status in Canada,[3] but did not chart in the USA. The original cover art was designed by Hugh Syme and was originally intended to be the cover art for Max Webster's High Class in Borrowed Shoes.
