Book Simply Red
Simply Red released Picture Book in 1985, which featured “Money’s Too Tight (To Mention)” and “Holding Back the Years”. The third album, A New Flame (February 1989), went gold due to the cover of the 1972 Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes hit “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” that hit number one and became a gold single.
The fourth album Stars was a major success -especially in the U.K., where it was the best-selling album of 1991, and topped the charts for 19 weeks. Simply Red’s fifth album, Life was released in 1995, and topped charts all over Europe, as did its leadoff single, “Fairground”. Blue followed in 1998, and a year later Simply Red issued Love and the Russian Winter.
Home was released in 2003. Two years later, the band released Simplified, a collection of old tracks and new songs. The band’s tenth studio album Stay was released on 12 March 2007.
