Released in March 1986, the record hit number 3 and spent 82 weeks in the UK Official Album Charts, went into the Top Ten in the USA where it was certified platinum, and to date has sold over three million copies worldwide. The duo’s debut single, ‘West End girls’, was PSB’s first number one certified Gold single. In 1987 it was awarded Best Single at the BRIT Awards, Best International Hit at the Ivor Novello Awards and later Song Of The Decade at the 2005 Ivor Novello Awards. It also reached number one in the USA.
