King – Love & Pride (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th June 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

“Love & Pride” is the debut single by Coventry band King, produced by Richard James Burgess from their first studio album Steps in Time (1984). It was released in August 1984 and reached a chart ranking of #84 on the UK Singles Chart in May. When the group performed the song on Saturday morning television towards the end of the year, the single was re-released and became a hit in early 1985, reaching number two in the charts for three consecutive weeks and only being held off the top spot by “I Know Him So Well”, a duet by Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson for the musical Chess. It later climbed to a peak of number 55 in the US Billboard Hot 100 in August 1985. Richard James Burgess remixed the single several times for B-sides and 12 inch versions and these fueled the international club success of the single and subsequent album, Steps in Time. The dance mixes of “Love & Pride” pushed it to a peak position of seventeen on the American dance charts. In this song a Prophet 5 synthesizer is used.
