Following the acclaimed Human Racing reissue, Universal Music Catalogue are now pleased to announce the Re-Presents edition of The Riddle. Featuring the top 10 singles, The Riddle, Wide Boy and Don Quixote this expanded edition comes with b-sides and live material - mixed by Nik himself. The Riddle heralded Nik's dominance of the UK pop music scene. In 1984 he spent the most weeks as a solo artist in the chart. At the beginning of 1984, a Nik Kershaw had released his breakthrough song "Wouldn't It Be Good", which reached Number 4 in the UK Singles Chart, and was a big success in Europe. He enjoyed three more Top 20 hits from his debut album Human Racing. Kershaw's second album was The Riddle. The title track, released in November 1984, proved to be another UK and international hit single, reaching Number 3 in the UK and Ireland, and Number 6 in New Zealand, and the album also spawned two more UK Top 10 hits, "Wide Boy" and "Don Quixote", as it went platinum. During this time, Kershaw toured extensively.
