EDITORS’ NOTES

King were a cult-favorite, fab-haired band that lasted long enough in the ’80s to release a pair of hit albums of well-above-average pop. In fact, it’s easy to see how the band adored Slade (“Crazy Party”), The Clash (“I Cried, I Died, I Felt Hot”), and Hall & Oates' blue-eyed soul (“I Know”), as well as reggae and ska. This music was produced big for the masses, yet it’s pure blue-collar dance fare (listen to the hit “Love & Pride”). That alone makes it worthy. And singer Paul King’s preternatural charisma drew listeners in. This set collects the hits, killer album cuts, b-sides, and remixes.

Love and Pride

Best song ever from the 80's! Heard it today on xm and when i did soundhound, saw that it is available on itunes... Memories of some of the best times of my teenage life. Buy it now!

Paul King Rulez, ok?

This is all well and good but iTunes needs to put out "Steps in Time" where every song is a classic, besides the obligatory hits that are on this comp.
