Manchester band whose blend of smooth jazz, sophisticated pop, and funk topped the British charts during the 1980s and '90s. At the beginning of their career, Level 42 was squarely a jazz-funk fusion band, contemporaries of fellow Brit funk groups like Atmosfear, Light of the World, Incognito, and Beggar & Co. By the end of the '80s, however, the band – whose music was instantly recognizable from Mark King's thumb-slap bass technique and associate member Wally Badarou's synthesizer flourishes – had crossed over to the point where they were often classified as sophisti-pop and dance-rock, equally likely to be placed in the context of Sade and the Style Council as any group that made polished, upbeat, danceable pop/rock.

The Ultimate Collection is an exhaustive double-disc + bonus CD anthology that is ideal for those who want all of Level 42's key moments ("The Sun Goes Down," "Lessons in Love," "Starchild," "Something About You," "Love Meeting Love"), in addition to select album material. Released in 2002 by Polydor in the U.K., it boasts digitally remastered sound and sells for the price of a single disc – so, although it contains more than what most people in search of a good introduction want, it might be preferable to Level Best, the excellent single-disc compilation released over a decade prior. This easily trumps Turn It On, since it features no studio scraps and focuses on the band's best work.

World Machine is the sixth studio album by the British band Level 42, released in 1985. It peaked at #3 on the UK album charts, and it stayed on the chart for 72 weeks. It was the band's first disc to enter the Billboard 200 (peaking at number 18), and it stayed on the chart for 36 weeks. This release marked a transition from their jazz-funk beginnings to the funky pop they are best known for - a transition which eventually resulted in the departure of drummer Phil Gould subsequent to the release of their follow up album Running in the Family.

"Level 42" was 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.

Running in the Family was the seventh album from Level 42, released in 1987.

All five singles peaked in the top 10 in the Netherlands, where the band were always popular. "Lessons in Love" peaked at #1 in Germany, South Africa, Switzerland and Denmark. This was the last Level 42 album of 1980's to feature brothers Phil (drums) and Roland 'Boon' Gould (guitar), who had cited dissatisfaction with the musical direction of the band, and exhaustion as departure reasons.

"You Can't Blame Louis" and "Weave Your Spell" both stomp their way through catchy chorus and intelligent verse, but the 'piece de resistance' has to be the title track, an ingenious execution of the bands own roots and influences - it's Herbie Hancock in the early seventies. It's modern electric fusion pushed to the extremes of feasibility. The bass line, now a trade mark (terrible puns!) of the band, lays down a solid foundation whilst the attack of the drum kit is quite extraordinary.
