Formed in 1975, Air Supply comprises of Russell Hitchcock as the lead vocalist and Graham Russell as singer, songwriter and guitarist. After their formation in 1975, the duo gained significant popularity with their string of hit singles back in the 80s. The original line up of Air Supply comprised of the former two along with Chrissie Hammond on vocals. These three met each other for the first time when they performed with each other for, Jesus Christ Superstar’s Australian production. Initially the group began its career as a harmony vocal group, however later on Hammond parted ways to form another band called Cheetah. After her departure, Jeremy Paul took her place as the vocalist and bassist of the band a year later after its formation.

Featuring songs like Do it Again, and How the Whole Thing Started, Air Supply released its follow up studio album, The Whole Thing’s Started, in 1977. The album received mild popularity, although it failed to do well on charts. The album was followed by another studio release by the group titled "Love & Other Bruises", but again failed to have much critical success. Moving along with their mild commercial and critical success, the group released another album titled Life Support in April 1979 which was produced by Charles Fisher. The album featured "Lost in Love", which managed to earn the #13th spot both in New Zealand and Australia. The group had its major break thanks to "Lost In Love", as it attracted the attention of Clive Davis or Arista Records, who remixed and re-released it internationally in 1980. Following the single, an album by the same name was also released on Arista Records and spawned three Top Five U.S Singles.
Lost in Love" the album came out to be the biggest and most successful studio release by Air Supply. The album sold well over three million units and went on to receive multiplatinum status. Moreover, it also provided the group with the kind of international exposure they were unable to get with their previous releases. From this point onwards, the group started doing well commercially and their follow up album "The One That You Love" carried forward their torch of success by spawning one number hit, and three top ten U.S hits. In 1982, the band released another of its studio albums titled Now and Forever. Just like its predecessor, the album was released to critical acclaim as well, and further established Air Supply’s firm fan base with the help of two Top 40 and one Top Ten singles. The following year, group’s single "Making Love out of Nothing at All" which was featured on their Greatest Hits album, took the group to the new heights of success as it stayed on #2 spot for three whole weeks. Thanks to the single, the album managed to sell more than five million units. Group’s single "I Can Wait Forever", was also included in the Ghostbusters (movies) OSTs, in 1984.
