What Price Paradise was the fourth studio album by China Crisis. It was released 1986 and charted in the album top 75 of that year.

The band collaborated with producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley (who worked with Madness) on the album which included the first single "Arizona Sky", A second single "Best Kept Secret", made UK No. 36 in early 1987 and reached the Top 20 in Spain and Ireland.

Like fellow Liverpudlians O.M.D., China Crisis began life as a synthetic duo who performed brilliantly executed pop songs with quirky edges. And like O.M.D., they seamlessly mixed their love of guitar-based pop with (then) modern musical technology.

This 3-CD deluxe version was produced with the full co-operation of that band who prided new interviews to Record Collector’s Daryl Easlea for the booklet. The set contains many bonus tracks, including unheard demos from the band. The whole set has been remastered from original tapes by Andy Pearce. The booklet contains many rare photos and memorabilia from the time.
