Yeah, yeah... most people remember King for their biggest hit, "Love and Pride", along with the accompanying videos spray painted boots and Paul King's horrible green suit, which can still be seen in occasional rotation on VH1 Classic. People either recall this song/image fondly or harshly - I recall it fondly.

King burst onto the UK music scene in late 1984 with their top 3 hit "Love and Pride", though it wasn't released in the U.S. until the following year, and then only managed a chart placing in the 50's. What most people didn't know, including myself until I was doing research for an upcoming reissue of "Bitter Sweet", was that "Love and Pride" and "Won't You Hold My Hand Now" had been previously released as singles, along with "Soul On My Boots", all of which made little impact. It wasn't until a re-release that things began to take off.
King's debut album, `Steps in time', was a careful combination of chart geared dance pop and some of the wonderful New Wave eccentricities, which were becoming harder to find in 1984/85. The combination gave them well deserved chart success and a fanatical following... in the UK. As history states, Paul King had a real desire to become a hitmaker in the U.S., however the follow up UK hit, "Won't you hold my hand now" made no impression in the U.S. and the album (unjustly) faded into obscurity. It's unfortunate because there is not one bad song on that album, though some are not extremely strong. `Love and Pride - The Best of King' offers six of the albums original ten songs, along with one single B side.

Paul King had a knack for writing goofball lyrics and placing them over a catchy dance beat. The band hit their high point with their absolutely wonderful follow up album, `Bitter Sweet'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated artist still sounds great! 5 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have been listening to Paul King's work for nearly 20 years now and this album sums up his passion and versatility. It's hard for me to single out the best tracks as I've fallen in love with them all over the years, but if you like your music heavy with soul, drums or rollercoaster melodies, then buy this collection!

3.0 out of 5 stars Love And Pride-The Best Of King. 25 Feb 2014
By David
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this album as a suggestion on Amazon with The Thomson Twins. Love And Pride, The Taste Of Your Tears, plus two other hits King had but vanished a year later in 1986. The album has to extended mixes at the end Love And Pride, in 12 inch too. Bearable, but probably wouldn't have bought it if Amazon hadn't suggested it as frequently bought together.
