The band released two albums on CBS before Paul decided to take a more soulful direction which resulted in the solo LP of 1987 "Joy" and the UK Top 75 single "I Know". Paul King's solo output was not as successful as the material he recorded with the band and later become a VJ on MTV before moving over to VH1.
