Product Description

Sparks brothers Ron and Russell Mael have endeared themselves to successive generations of fans since the early 1970s and are numbered among the most influential acts ever. Morrissey, Siouxsie Sioux, the Pet Shop Boys and many more are numbered among Sparks loyal disciples, while the group's following is truly international. This collection of 12-inch versions of Sparks work pays homage to the extended mixes that were often contrived in the studio for use in discos. They found success in Europe in 1979 working with Italian-born producer Giorgio Moroder who, with Pete Bellotte, had turned US singer Donna Summer into a megastar with his hypnotically repetitive Eurodisco instrumental style. Beat The Clock and Tryouts For The Human Race were early results. They then moved on to register US dancefloor hits with the likes of I Predict and Cool Places - a collaboration with Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Gos. This unique compilation chooses the best versions from the various labels Sparks inhabited and the countries in which they released their music between 1979 and 1984. Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected Record Collector journalist Michael Heatley. Expertly remastered superb sound - top quality reproduction. The best in the business!

Well considering I bought the other 12 inch collection I sometimes wonder if I got really ripped off buying this one. And after some comparing I found out that only 5 tracks differ (maybe more I dunno). However WHY RELEASING TWO 12 inch Collections with simillar content ?!??!
Felt kinda ripped off...

My 12” Blue Vinyl Picture Disc of Beat The Clock is a little scratched and annoyingly jumps! So to find, not only that version in digital format, but a lot of my other favourites was a bonus. I would have creamed my pants if the first four 12” remixes had been available on one LP around early the 80’s! Still, I suspect, like me, many will find the mix of tracks strange as they come from differing era’s so you’ll find yourself skipping around the album to the ones you want. Still if you’re a fan then buy it if only for the special version of ‘Tryouts’.

Not essential but still very high quality of all the Mael Brothers 12 inch Remixes.

Very highly recommended nonetheless, great production and sound quality.

Just Buy It!
