When British Pop band Breathe released their debut album in 1987, their label had high hopes for mainstream success. Over six months later, the label and the band had all but given up on the hopes of having a hit and were set to part ways. But then 'Hands To Heaven' started to achieve airplay in the U.S. in 1988 and began a long and phenomenal climb up the charts. Needless to say, 'Hands To Heaven' became enormous and continues to receive airplay 20 years after it's initial release. The band followed it up with two more hits ('How Can I Fall?' and 'Don't Tell Me Lies') and two albums filled with more Blue Eyed Soul/Jazz/Pop gems, but their fame was fleeting and the band faded from view in the early '90s. Fortunately, this great CD brings together the best of both of their albums and features the hits as well as 'should-have-been' hits like 'Say A Prayer', 'All This I Should Have Known' and more. 12 tracks in all. EMI. 2006.
