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.
