Belatedly, all of Kid Creole and the Coconuts' albums can be purchased on CD, and through the Sire and Columbia years, 1980-1992, every damn one is worth it. This is something else.

You Shoulda Told Me You Were… is the eighth studio album released by the American musical group Kid Creole and the Coconuts. It was released in 1991 and includes the single "(She's A) Party Girl".
Private Waters in the Great Divide is the seventh studio album released by the American musical group Kid Creole and the Coconuts. It was released in 1990 and includes the singles "The Sex of It"(written and mostly performed by Prince), and "I Love Girls".
