Edem Ephraim and Dennis Fuller, both true Londoners from the east end, were christened The London Boys in 1986. Discovered whilst working as dancers in Hamburg, producer Ralf-René Maué instantly saw their potential for pop stardom.

The duo enjoyed several hits in Europe and Asia, but it was the single ‘Requiem’ that caught on internationally, thanks to Pete Waterman, who persuaded The London Boys U.K. label to release the record domestically.

‘Requiem’ rose to number 4 on the charts and was swiftly followed by the #2 hit ‘London Nights’. Both were included on the near-double-platinum album, “The Twelve Commandments Of Dance”, that also hit #2.

Further hits followed in the UK and around the world with ‘Harlem Desire’, ‘My Love’, ‘Freedom’ and ‘Chapel Of Love’.

Now for the first time, we celebrate the memory of The London Boys with a new 5-disc box set, featuring three albums, expanded with a host of extra material.

• Showcases the albums “THE TWELVE COMMANDMENTS OF DANCE”, “SWEET SOUL MUSIC” and “LOVE 4 UNITY”
• Includes the huge hits ‘Requiem’, ‘London Nights’ and ‘Harlem Desire’
• Features a brand new, 2021 interview with writer/producer Ralf-René Maué
• Includes a wealth of remixes, edits and instrumental versions
• Many mixes are new-to-CD from the original master tapes
• Previously unreleased mixes
• The London Boys Story liner notes
