but the much awaited album didn't happen. In 2003, just as the album was ready to go into press, the chairman at Sony had a serious fall-out with Ebony's manager and she was dumped, much to everyone's disappointment, and for a while it looked as if one and a half years' work had gone to waste. One track "All the Love in the World" cropped up on Levine's Northern Soul 2004. In early 2007, however, Expansion Records bought the rights to the album, and Levine and Scott took Alleyne to the studio to record one new track "You Caught Me Off Guard" and add it to the track listing. The album Never Look Back was finally released in June 2007 and launched at a release party at the Jazz Café in Camden Town.
The album was released in Japan late September with five bonus tracks, including a remix of "You Caught Me Off Guard". Alleyne recorded three new tracks - including a duet with Noel McKoy - for Levine's album Northern Soul 2007 and another track for Disco 2008. Additional info One of Alleyne's unreleased songs, "Like a Lady" (scheduled for inclusion on the 2003 album) was re-recorded with The X Factor artists Voices With Soul for Northern Soul 2007 and became a hit on Youtube with more than 40,000 views and subsequently released a download single on iTunes.
