Album and single release
The album Journey was released as the band's first LP by Columbia Records on April 1, 1975. Two months later, Columbia also issued the band's first single. "To Play Some Music" was chosen as the A-side, while the B-side featured another cut from Journey, the instrumental fifth track "Topaz" ("Topaz" followed "To Play Some Music" on the album running order). "To Play Some Music" was written by Gregg Rolie and Neal Schon, while "Topaz" was penned by George Tickner.
Journey would ultimately peak at #138 on The Billboard 200 album chart in the United States and also at #72 in Japan. However, "To Play Some Music" has never appeared on any major singles chart Worldwide. It was the only single issued from the band's debut album.
