No 1 In Heaven

No 1 In Heaven

  • Limited edition of 1,000 copies in blue vinyl plus enclosed CD of same content + bonus tracks
  • Remastered for vinyl + CD
  • Vinyl cut at Abbey Road, London

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.
