Level 42 are an English pop rock and jazz-funk band who had a number of worldwide and UK hits during the 1980s and 1990s.
Level 42 is 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.
In 2000, Polydor reissued the first eight studio albums by Level 42 in two-for-one sets with remastered sound and bonus tracks. The packaging for each release is drab, but the series offered a convenient way to obtain the majority of the band's back catalog. This release features the first two albums: Level 42 (1981) and The Early Tapes (aka Strategy, 1982)
