The CD booklet will include comprehensive sleeve notes and a full UK singles discography. Julian Marshall (keyboardist) and Kit Hain (vocalist and bass player) met whilst at the innovative boarding school, Dartington Hall. They signed to Harvest Records, a label created by EMI Records and their first single Dancing In The City was an international hit, peaking at #3 in the UK whilst topping the charts in Australia and South Africa. The follow up Coming Home was also a hit and prompted the release of their debut album “Free Ride”. The band decided to go their separate ways in 1979, with Kit Hain releasing 2 albums before becoming a successful songwriter for other artists with Cher, Fleetwood Mac and Cyndi Lauper amongst others covering her songs.
Julian Marshall became a member of Flying Lizards who enjoyed a top 10 hit in 1979 with Money (That’s What I Want) and then was one half of the duo Eye To Eye who enjoyed minor chart success in the U.S.
