Helix breaking loose

Breaking Loose was the first independent album by the Canadian rock band Helix. It was released in 1979. Joe Anthony from KISS FM in San Antonio, Texas began playing "You're A Woman Now" which enabled the band to play there for the first time. It also featured "Billy Oxygen" written and sung by guitarist Brent "The Doctor" Doerner. The song mixed genres such as hard rock, metal, funk and progressive rock and garnered them some early Canadian airplay.


It was first issued on CD with White Lace & Black Leather as part of the Helix compilation CD The Early Years, released by Capitol in 1992. It was later re-released individually by the band, but is now out of print.
