No.1 In Heaven
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 includes 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.
