Heavy Nova + Don't Explain 

 

After almost two decades with Island Records (as a member of both The Alan Bown Set and Vinegar Joe, and solo) and a series of hit albums and singles, Robert Palmer signed to EMI in 1988.
In June 88, hit single Simply Irresistible preceded the hit album Heavy Nova , and was followed by a Top Ten hit single, the classic She Makes My Day . Further hits followed in Change His Ways  and It Could Happen To You. The bonus tracks on this expanded edition feature the two remixes of Simply Irresistible, a remix of Change His Ways, and the non-album song Nova .
Second (double) album Don t Explain followed in November 1990, preceded by the Top Ten collaboration with UB40, I'll Be Your Baby Tonight and followed by Palmer's hit homage to Marvin Gaye Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology) / I Want You, both also included in this release in their 12" versions. Also included are three non-album singles B-sides.
The booklet of this slip-cased 2 CD set features annotation by Alan Robinson along with the CD singles covers.
