Taken from the artist description:
There are three P's in Stewart Copeland's life--Police, polo and perfection. He is best known, of course, for his role as drummer of The Police, one of the truly major rock acts of the last decade. Their hits are numerous, their concerts visual and aural phenomena and Stewart's contribution immeasurable. But in recent years he has turned his talents to the writing of soundtracks for both film and TV. His music for the movie Rumble Fish created an excitement which will be equally matched by The Equalizer and Other Cliff Hangers, his contribution to the No Speak catalogue. Entirely composed and performed by Copeland, it includes his much lauded score for The Equalizer TV series which stars Edward Woodward.

The album "The Equalizer & Other Cliff Hangers" was part of the IRS "No Speak" series. In 1988 a 8-track sample CD ("No Speak - Instrumental Rock For The 90's") was released containing tracks from the first four "No Speak" albums:
1. Wishbone Ash - Something's Happening In Room 602
2. William Orbit - Fire And Mercy
3. Pete Haycock - Terry Anne
4. Stewart Copeland - The Equalizer Busy Equalizing
5. Pete Haycock - Lucienne
6. Wishbone Ash - A Rose Is A Rose
7. William Orbit - Via Caliente
8. Stewart Copeland - Tancred Ballet
