Front cover of Fearless

Fearless is the second solo album recorded by Tim Curry. It was released on A&M Records in 1979 while The Rocky Horror Picture Show was in the midst of its most wide-spread popularity. The album was able to capitalize on the free publicity by playing promotional videos for the single tracks "Paradise Garage" and "I Do The Rock" before the Midnight showings at theaters across the country. The videos were aired repeatedly over a 3-year period on the first national video broadcast program (and precursor to MTV) called Video Concert Hall that had wide-spread distribution via Superstation WTBS.

Fearless became Curry's biggest commercial success as a recording artist, reaching #53 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the single, "I Do The Rock" peaked at #91. A summer concert tour coincided with the album's release.
