Hurriganes were undisputedly the most successful rock group in Finland in the 70’s, but in many ways they also were the most important. The first six LPs, released by the unprejudiced Love Records, all brought the band gold records, and four of them went platinum. This success helped Love Records to finance many less commercially successful projects. When Love Records eventually ended up in financial trouble thanks to a string of uncommercial releases and went bankrupt in 1979, Hurriganes had already switched labels a year earlier to the more economically stable Scandia. It proved to be anything but an easy start.
