Formed in the last embers of the 70’s Level 42 started as a Jazz Fusion band before embracing dance rock for which they would be best known.
• The band’s first single Love Meeting Love was released in 1980 to much critical acclaim which led to the debut album, the self-titled Level 42 which charted in the top 20.
• Throughout the 80’s the band released numerous albums and toured regularly building a large and devoted fan base – these early years are featured here
• Volume One contains all the Level 42 albums from 1981 – 1984 in their original glory.
Rotosound talks to Level 42 frontman, Mark King, about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected his life, why he first picked up the bass, and why he has used Rotosound strings throughout his career. Mark takes questions from fans including how often he changes his strings (it’s a lot!), if he plays double bass, and whether he has any dreams yet to be fulfilled.
