First collaboration from 1979 with legendary Giorgio Moroder(currently assisting Daft Punk).Although No.73 in the UK charts,the album was influential far beyond its sales at time.Defined the synth duo format subsequently followed by Pet Shop Boys,Erasure,Bronski Beat and so many more.Human League's Phil Oakey(who was later to work with Moroder)was quoted enthusing:'Really great singles from one of my favourite groups.'Contains smash hits The Number 1 Song in Heaven (UK#14)and Beat The Clock (UK#10),Sparks biggest singles since their mid-70s heyday and still career highlights to this day.Sparks pioneered the 12-inch single with Moroder extending and reconstructing tracks for the dance floor these are included on this new set.The 9 Bonus tracks include the singles and extended versions of their hits and key tracks from the 1979 period.Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected Record Collector journalist Michael Heatley.Expertly re-mastered superb sound - top quality reproduction.The best in the business!

The bonus tracks have been structured well in playing order, there are never two versions of the same song in sequential order which is much easier to listen to. There is enough variety within the remixes to make you feel that you are listening to different songs rather than the same sounds being used in a different order. Overall the album sounds fresh, energetic and would sit alongside and even fare better than many of the chart music that is around today. This album was of its time and ahead of its time. Good sleeve notes which have inspired me now to go and listen to some of their other material. this is a fantastic buy and I would urge anyone of a fan of eighties electronic music and Georgio Moroder's production to get a copy of this, you will not be disappointed.
Beat the Clock is just awesome but who can beat the headonistic Number One Song In Heaven. Just an amazing track which still sounds great almost 30yrs later. Truly awesome.
Tryouts for the Human Race is also knock out!!!
A classic album.
With the assistance of Electronic Producer Maestro Giorgio Moroder they helped to create a new genre of Music - Electro Pop.
All six tracks on this album are stunning, but Number One Song In Heaven and Beat The Clock are out of this world.
Please please can we have a double CD remastered re-release with all the B Sides, demos and outtakes soon??????
A very highly recommended, five star must buy.
