Synopsis

Album Description
King grew out of the Reluctant Stereotypes, a highly-regarded but underachieving UK Coventry band, with musicians including former Members' drummer Adrian Lilywhite (brother of U2 producer Steve). They settled on a distinctive image - multi-coloured Doc Martens, with King himself resplendent in bright suits and cockatoo hair. As well as numerous bonus tracks never released before on CD, this package includes exclusive liner notes written by long-serving Coventry journalist Pete Chambers, who has followed the band's career for many years. There are also many unpublished photographs in the accompanying booklet.
 

CD Reviews

It's finally released!!
DJ Ridge | Allentown PA, USA | 01/22/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"How nice it was to browse through amazon to find that this forgotten gem has FINALLY been released on cd. In all honesty, Bitter Sweet isn't quite as good as Steps In Time, but the tracks Alone Without You, Platform One and 2 M.B. alone make this good reason to purchase this disc. Kind of odd though, now that this disc is released, it seems they've pulled Steps In Time from the offering. It's ashame the group didn't carry on, I believe there could have been a lot more to offer. Paul King's solo effort was a 2 star at best. But Bitter Sweet was definitely a bitter sweet ending for a band with a short lived history."
