Ron and Russell Mael are the brotherly spark plugs of Sparks, who come from California but created their biggest impact when they arrived in England in 1974. Russell was the younger half of the duo, who sang in a manic falsetto while Ron played keyboards and sported a Charlie Chaplin style mustache.

1979's No. 1 In Heaven marked their first collaboration with the legendary Giorgio Moroder (currently assisting Daft Punk). Although only No. 73 in the UK charts, the album was influential far beyond its sales at time helping define the synth duo format subsequently followed by Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, Bronski Beat and so many more. Human League's Phil Oakey was quoted enthusing: "Really great singles from one of my favourite groups." Contains the 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 as bonus tracks on an accompanying CD. The 9 bonus tracks encompass the singles and extended versions of their hits and key tracks from the 1979 period.

Features:
• Colored 180g vinyl with enclosed CD of same content plus bonus tracks
• Remastered for vinyl & CD
• Vinyl cut at Abbey Road, London
