Manchester band whose blend of smooth jazz, sophisticated pop, and funk topped the British charts during the 1980s and '90s. At the beginning of their career, Level 42 was squarely a jazz-funk fusion band, contemporaries of fellow Brit funk groups like Atmosfear, Light of the World, Incognito, and Beggar & Co. By the end of the '80s, however, the band – whose music was instantly recognizable from Mark King's thumb-slap bass technique and associate member Wally Badarou's synthesizer flourishes – had crossed over to the point where they were often classified as sophisti-pop and dance-rock, equally likely to be placed in the context of Sade and the Style Council as any group that made polished, upbeat, danceable pop/rock.

The Ultimate Collection is an exhaustive double-disc + bonus CD anthology that is ideal for those who want all of Level 42's key moments ("The Sun Goes Down," "Lessons in Love," "Starchild," "Something About You," "Love Meeting Love"), in addition to select album material. Released in 2002 by Polydor in the U.K., it boasts digitally remastered sound and sells for the price of a single disc – so, although it contains more than what most people in search of a good introduction want, it might be preferable to Level Best, the excellent single-disc compilation released over a decade prior. This easily trumps Turn It On, since it features no studio scraps and focuses on the band's best work.

In 1981 Level 42 released their first Polydor single, "Love Games", which became a Top 40 hit. They then cut their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album, which was an immediate success throughout Europe. The band quickly established themselves as concert favourites, taking advantage of the high performance skills of all four members.

"Level 42" was the debut album released in 1981 by the British group Level 42. It is best known for the track "Love Games", which became a successful jazz-funk and dancefloor hit for the band (reaching number 38 on the UK pop charts). It has figured in both L42's and bassist Mark King's solo live appearances to this day. Also gaining substantial dance airplay on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean was the track "Starchild", with Lindup on vocals.

Running in the Family was the seventh album from Level 42, released in 1987. It featured the UK hit singles: "Lessons in Love" (which reached No. 3 in April 1986), "Running in the Family" (No. 6 in February 1987), "To Be With You Again" (No. 10 in April '87), "It's Over" (No. 10, in September 1987) and "Children Say" (No. 22 at the end of 1987). All five singles peaked in the top 10 in the Netherlands, where the band were always popular. "Lessons in Love" peaked at #1 in Germany, South Africa, Switzerland and Denmark. This was the last Level 42 album of 1980's to feature brothers Phil (drums) and Roland 'Boon' Gould (guitar), who had cited dissatisfaction with the musical direction of the band, and exhaustion as departure reasons.

This album is indeed NOT the RCA release Guaranteed album. That one is really hard to get these days. Having been a faithful Level 42 fan for a very long time.... Mark King being my main influence on the bass, this album, like most of the early ones, is a masterpiece. Allan Holdsworth also contributed in this album (in case you don't know, he's the guitar wizard worshipped by other guitar maestros). So if you're looking for the RCA release, don't look here. But this album is a true gem.

By Running in the Family, Level 42 had almost completely thinned out their early jazz-funk and soul roots in favor of a radio-friendly keyboard pop with a light R&B vibe. The sound lies somewhere between Kool and the Gang and early Tears for Fears. But if early fans might have felt betrayed by the new direction, the band's newfound aptitude for attention-grabbing hooks and airtight instrumental polish attracted more than enough new fans to replace them.
