A short note from a Billboard story: REO Speedwagon are looking to commemorate the 30th of Hi Infidelity with a deluxe reissue and tour.
Released at the end of 1980 and one of the biggest sellers of 1981, Hi Infidelity was something of a renaissance for the band, taking them from lower Top 40 success to chart-topping dominance. Aided by a clutch of hits including the undying No. 1 ballad "Keep on Loving You" and the Top 5 follow-up "Take It on the Run," Hi Infidelity went nine times platinum.
Although the record was given a straight remaster in 2000, frontman Kevin Cronin told Billboard that the band recently found old acoustic studio demos from the original sessions and hope to include them in a deluxe reissue. The band is also planning some commemorative performances of the whole LP for their 2011 tour.

I thought I read once that Hi-Infidelity was a demo, meaning the demos they recorded were so good they releaaed them as is.
Maybe they'll spell 'Hi Infidelity' correctly on the CD label this time around!
