1986 Toto – Fahrenheit

Fahrenheit is the sixth studio album by Toto, released in 1986. It was their first album to feature Joseph Williams on lead vocals.

It was also the last Toto album to feature keyboardist Steve Porcaro as a permanent member, as he left after the Fahrenheit tour.

Singer/Dancer Paula Abdul appears in the video for a third single, “Till The End”
