1988 Giant Steps – The Book Of Pride

Giant Steps was a pop duo from England that consisted of vocalist/producer Colin Campsie and bassist/keyboardist/producer George McFarlane. They had previously recorded as The Quick.

Giant Steps’ only album, The Book of Pride, was released in 1988, and its first single “Another Lover” became a hit in the United States, peaking at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. It became very popular in Italy in 1988 as well, garnering considerable airplay on pop radio. It was subsequently featured over the opening credits of the 1989 film Loverboy, starring Patrick Dempsey.

Giant Steps’ follow-up single “Into You” was a modest US chart success, reaching No. 58 in early 1989.
