2 hit). Her debut album Kim Wilde (released on RAK records) was released in July 1981 and stayed in the UK album charts for 14 weeks, peaking at number 3. Two more hits from her debut were released Chequered Love & Water on Glass. Her second album Select (released May 1982) contained more hits Cambodia and View from a Bridge.
