Thursday 10/7/21 9pm ET: Feature LP: Honeymoon Suite – The Big Prize (1986)

The Big Prize is the second album by Honeymoon Suite, released in December 1985. It featured four hit singles, including the band’s biggest hit in the U.S., “Feel It Again,” and “Bad Attitude,” which was notably featured in a sequence in the final episode of Miami Vice 4 years later. In 1990 the album was certified Triple Platinum in Canada (in excess of 300,000 copies sold) by the CRIA (Canadian Recording Industry Association).

The album cover features a newly married couple having their picture taken by some tourists at Niagara Falls, Honeymoon Suite’s hometown. The photo was taken on the Canadian side of the Falls.

Following the release of this album, the band won the Juno Award for “Group of the Year” and was also nominated for “Album of the Year” in 1986.

In a 2008 interview, Honeymoon Suite’s guitarist Derry Grehan said “I think our best record was The Big Prize.”
