Simply Red is a British soul-pop group, which was established in 1985 by Mick “Red” Hucknall, Durutti Column, Tony Bowers, Chris Joyce, Sylvan Richardson, Fritz McIntyre, and Tim Kellett. However, by the time the band stopped functioning in 2010, out of the original group members, only Mick Hucknall was left. The band resumed their work in 2015. Simply Red received various British music awards. Ten of their singles reached the top spots in the UK Singles chart.

In 1985, the band members signed a contract with a recording studio Elektra and released their first album Picture Book. The LP included the single “Money’s Too Tight (To Mention), which got to the 13th spot on the UK singles chart and into the top 30 of various European charts, including Austria, Belgium, and New Zealand. The album included a single “Holding Back the Years”. This song written by Hucknall got to the top of the USA charts.

The second album Men and Women was released in 1987. This album was less popular than the first one but some songs still became hits. For example, it included “The Right Thing”, “Infidelity”, and “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye” that got into top 40 of the British chart. In 1987, Richardson left the group and was replaced by Aziz Ibrahim, who was later replaced by Heitor T.P.

In 1989, the band released the third album New Flame. It became golden thanks to the participation of Harold Melvin, who helped to record “If You Don’t Know Me by Now” that became a golden single.

By the time the group released the 4th album Stars, Bowers and Joyce left the band. They were replaced by Shaun Ward, Gota, and Ian Kirkham, who became a permanent number. Stars turned out to be a failure in the USA but was very popular in the UK. The album sold 8.5 million copies worldwide. Before the 5th album Life was released, Ward and Gota left the group. The album was again more popular in the UK and the USA. The group released 3 more albums before disbanding in 2010.
