The Chapters[edit]

Three of the songs, "Streets Of Gold (Chapter 14)", "You Know I Know (Chapter 12)" and "Worlds Apart (Chapter 16)," were the last part of a second series of eight songs that Saga included within some of their albums called "The Chapters," which told the story of a young Albert Einstein. These songs were also 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.
