Saga is the first studio album by the Canadian progressive rock band Saga and was originally released in June 1978.

The Chapters[edit]

Two of the songs, "Will It Be You? (Chapter Four)," and "Tired World (Chapter Six)," were part of a series of eight (but later sixteen) songs that Saga included within their first four albums called "The Chapters", which told the story of a young Albert Einstein. These songs were later included on The Chapters LIVE, an album that the band recorded in 2005. To date, there's been no official compilation of the chapters in their studio incarnation.
