King, led by later disc jockey Paul King, were among the biggest and brightest stars of the vibrant 80s British pop scene. They grew out of the Reluctant Stereotypes, a highly regarded but underachieving Coventry band, with musicians including former Members’ drummer Adrian Lilywhite.

They settled on a distinctive image – multi-coloured Doc Martens, with King himself resplendent in bright suits and cockatoo hair. They achieved immediate success with the UK number 2 chart hit ‘Love And Pride’ (included here in remixed form). This, their second album from 1985, which also includes the top ten hit ‘Alone Without You’, as well as a further hit, ‘Torture’, and the delicate ballad ‘The Taste Of Your Tears’. This was to be their final album before Paul embarked on a solo career.

As well as numerous bonus tracks never released before on CD, this package includes exclusive liner notes written by long-serving Coventry journalist Pete Chambers, who has followed the band’s career for many years.
