Street Talk is Steve Perry’s first solo studio album, released in April 1984.

Street Talk contains Perry’s biggest hit as a solo artist, “Oh Sherrie”, written for his then-girlfriend Sherrie Swafford.[5] The song hit #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on Billboard’s Rock chart, and the accompanying music video (also featuring Swafford) was a hit on MTV. Other singles included “Foolish Heart” (peaked at #18), “She’s Mine” (peaked at #21), and “Strung Out” (peaked at #40).

There were a number of nods to Perry’s pre-Journey band Alien Project on this album—in fact, that band was originally going to be called Street Talk.[6] In the liner notes, Perry dedicates the album to Richard Michaels (the bassist for Alien Project). Also, drummer Craig Krampf was a member of Alien Project later in the 1970s.

In addition to launching Perry’s solo career, the cover photo for Street Talk served as a career launchpad for music photographer John Scarpati, who met Perry during the album’s recording sessions at a studio in Sherman Oaks.[7]

Street Talk is certified as 2× Platinum (2,000,000) in sales by the RIAA
