The ChaptersEdit

Two of the songs, "Don't Be Late (Chapter Two)," and "Too Much to Lose (Chapter Seven)," 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. Silent Knight is certified Gold in Canada (50 000), having reached #42 in the charts.[2] The Einstein Tower in Potsdam was used as a template for the album cover.
