They moved to San Francisco for a short time to test out the club scene, then returned to Tucson, where Curtis} was replaced by Howie Salmon}. On their second trip to San Francisco, the Limbs} recorded their debut album, Romance}, released on the Modern Masters} label in 1983. It received generally good reviews, and the song "Suicide"} got a bit of airplay on college radio. During the mid-'80s, Salmon}'s place at live concerts was often taken by Cheryl Graham}, but he returned to the studio with the rest of the band for their second album, 1986's Train of Thought} (released by CD Presents} and also recorded in San Francisco).
