Trimmed and lean, this is called the Original line-up by many fans.
Over the course of the next couple of years years, this quintet recorded three studio albums.
However, they took on a sixth member in 1980 for the
Empires And Dance tour.
December 1978 - June 1980

There was no break up... they simply took on a sixth member.
