it doesn't look like an official album. more like a compilation from profile records with songs taken from his selftiteld "paul hardcastle" album and some 12'' b-sides. it wasn't even realesed in Great britan where he's from

This has to be one of the greatest electro albums of all time. Unlike nearly all contemporary electronic artists, Paul Hardcastle has a terrific sense of melody and song structure. These tunes are from the era when instrumental electro crossed over into the pop world through Kraftwerk, Herbie Hancock's Rockit and Axel F. Unfortunately Hardcastle only achieved success with '19' due mostly to the novelty value of the stuttering effect of the sampler. This album is a museum of also-ran tracks that had the potential to be every bit as popular as those mentioned above. It would take over 10 years before the likes of James Stinson and Ed DMX would re-explore Paul's light touch. (The cover of DMX Krew's 'We are DMX' is certainly an homage to this album)
