London-born Joy came to prominence as the writer and singer of Sheffield-based Krush’s ‘House Arrest’ crossover success from 1987, at which point she was widely touted as the ‘new Neneh Cherry’. However, it would take three years of work, and several dumped producers, before her debut solo album finally saw the light of day. Among those involved were Mantronix (who produced her debut solo single, ‘Don’t Push It’), Loose Ends’ Carl McIntosh and Aswad. Singles culled from the set included ‘Feel’ and ‘Pride And Joy’.
