GTR is the 1986 debut album from the short-lived supergroup GTR. The album peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 chart, and the single "When the Heart Rules the Mind" reached No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Another single, "The Hunter", peaked at No. 85. An instrumental piece recorded by GTR guitarist Steve Howe years before, "Sketches in the Sun", was included on the album due to a shortage of content. It resurfaced on his solo album Motif Volume 1 and again on his Anthology album. Steve Hackett's "Hackett to Bits" was a simplified version of the title track from his Please Don't Touch album. (It has no connection with the similarly titled "Hackett to Pieces" from Highly Strung.) Asia recorded their own version of the Geoff Downes-penned "The Hunter" for their 1997 compilation album Anthology.
The group, founded by Hackett and Howe, disbanded in 1987. Downes, who was an ex-Yes and ex-Asia member like Howe, produced the album.
The band's name, anecdotally, comes from the marking on the studio mixing console that indicates the 'guitar' volume control.
