Love and Kisses second album has as its A-side a complete 16:21 version of the title track. This is a classic Costandinos track, featuring all his trademarks. We especially like the climactic semitone raising, which begins after the three-minute long introduction. When the wah-wah guitar clicks in - then it's just bliss!

The b-side includes "Beauty and the beast". I've always had the impression that there wasn't enough material in this idea to spin it out into a complete album, like, say, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". However, I'm glad he didn't ditch it altogether, as it's a great, fully orchestrated disco track - if a little quirky.

The famous Lady Godiver album cover is, rather obviously, soft porn. It's designed by Gribbitt - the company who designed over half of all the album covers for Casablanca Records, as well as album covers for other record companies.
