Level 42 ‎– Lessons In Love (Extended Version) (12″)

Quintessential 80’s now with this massive hit from Level 42 given the Julien Mendelsohn remix. Released from the huge selling album “World Machine” from 1986, the band where Globally massive at the time. They had teamed up in the studio with Wally Badarou and Nick Froome to produce a smoothed put funk sound that brought mass appeal, particularly to Yuppies. Like a lot of their releases it came out in a load of different versions, this being the normal UK twelve.

Backed up by the album version of “World Machine” and a fantastic live version of “Hot Water”

  1. Fantastic track, offa the ‘Running in the Family’ album, rather than ‘World Machine’. Didn’t Shep Pettibone do a great version, too?

    1. It’s on here of you want a re-up.

  2. Thanks. These guys are always great.
