Don V. Lorusso produced the band's first album, Astral Projector, released in 1978, and a run of copies were released on blue vinyl. The album garnered the band a Juno Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year nomination. The opened concerts for The Tubes at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens, and for Styx and Foreigner at CNE Stadium.
Back Down to Earth, released in 1979, was produced by Lorusso and the late Vancouver keyboard player Dale Jacobs. The band played in Toronto as headliners with up to 17,800 attendees. A reporter for The Globe and Mail,[who?] who had only stayed to see the opening act, wrote a scathing review. The negative review was the headline of the national entertainment page. CBS demanded compensation for the impact on Zon's popularity but neither they nor the band ever recovered.
Zon was dropped from CBS after a thorough corporate housecleaning of the A&R Department despite Zon already having their contract signed for a third album.
After a legal battle they did manage one more album for Falcon Records called I'm Worried About The Boys, produced by then former CBS A&R executive Bob Gallo. The record featured a cover version of the Velvet Underground's Sweet Jane.
As part of the 1980 album tour Zon did an opening slot for Alice Cooper at CNE Stadium. When Cooper failed to appear minutes before showtime, Denton Young was given the onerous task of telling the audience. A riot ensued and police had to be called out. The band broke up shortly after, despite the 1981 single For You reaching No. 2 on CKOC (higher than any of the previous singles on CBS Records).
