Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the eccentric British Punk popstar's 1984 sophomore solo album including seven bonus non-album singles and b-sides. Captain Sensible was a founding member of legendary Punk band The Damned. Whilst still a member of The Damned, he signed a solo deal with A&M Records. Power Of Love is the follow up to Women And The Captains First and features the hit singles 'Glad It's All Over', 'Stop The World' and 'I'm A Spider'. This reissue also includes new artwork and extensive sleeve notes by Pat Gilbert (Mojo, Record Collector). 19 tracks. Cherry Red. 2009.
Finally, The Power of Love on CD!

"This album, along with "Women and Captains First", are the cream of the Captain Sensible non-Damned catalog. These songs are pure pop, largely cowritten by Robyn Hitchcock and produced by Tony Mansfield. The album has a breezy simplicity that really highlights Sensible's pop sensibility. It is also a more 'direct' album than "Women and Captains First". This Cherry Red release contains some great b-sides and for the first time contains the LP in it's entirety."
Covers amazing stylistic ground with ease and flair

"The Power of Love is less varied and novelty filled than Women and Captains First, but nonethe less contains a few subtler gems: "It's Hard to Believe I'm Not" and "Secrets" both co-written with Robyn Hichcock, "Stop the World" and Glad it's All Over", all distinguished by Sensible's engaging vocals and silly/serious lyrics. Remasted, resequenced from the original vinyl running order, along with non-lp b-sides and singles."
