Remastered for both vinyl and CD, this reissue also includes numerous bonus tracks, including the rare and original Peter Cook promo spots for the record, that were only available on the original UK picture disc pressings of 'Tryouts for the Human Race' and 'Beat the Clock'. The 'No.1 in Heaven' album saw a departure from Sparks' more traditional band format - and saw them collaborate with the renowned Giorgio Moroder to create an album of synth laden electro tracks, sans guitar and bass. At the time the album received mixed opinions from music critics, some accusing Sparks of betraying their pop and rock roots; but forty years and 16 more albums later, Sparks are still confounding, and amazing critics with their genre defying and pioneering music. Now, 'No. 1 in Heaven' is seen as an important and essential bookmark in the history of electronic music, inspiring countless other artists.
