Rescue You is the first solo album of Joe Lynn Turner, formerly of Rainbow and Fandango.[3] This album is a collection of AOR and radio-friendly pop tracks from the rock heyday of the mid-80's. Produced by Roy Thomas Baker.[4]

There was a single and video release of the song, "Endlessly." The song received extensive airplay on radio and peaked at No. 19 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart.[5] The accompanying video was directed by Jim Yukich, whose credits included Iron Maiden, Genesis, and Jeff Beck. The director described the video “like a dream in the life," combining conceptual and performance footage, and revolves around the marketing of a rock star." It was filmed at Carthay Studios and the Electrasound Warehouse near Los Angeles. Tammara Wells produced.[6] The album debuted on the Billboard 200 Album chart, the week ending November 2, 1985, and was on the charts for a total of 12 weeks, peaking at No. 143.[7]
