Nº 1 in Heaven is the eighth album by the American rock band Sparks. Recorded with Italian disco producer Giorgio Moroder, it marked a change of musical direction for the group and became influential on later synth-pop bands. Released in 1979 by Virgin Records (initial copies on colored vinyl) and later licensed to Elektra Records in the States, Nº 1 in Heaven renewed interest in the band after disappointing sales of albums like Big Beat and Introducing Sparks

6. "The Number One Song In Heaven". Side 2. 1. "Tryouts For The Human Race" (CD 2: No 2 - bonus tracks - alternative long version). 2. "Peter Cook's Promo Spot For No 1 In Heaven". 3. "The Number One Song In Heaven" (single version). 4. "Beat The Clock" (long version).

This release comes with a CD of the album, which also adds bonus tracks. Details on the CD bonus tracks are scant at the moment, although this appears to be a release from Repertoire in Germany and back in 2013 they put out a CD with the following bonus tracks:, Tryouts For The Human Race (Single Version) 3:17.

Originally released March 1979, marking Sparks' first delving into electronic music via Giorgio Moroder N. In Heaven is now re-issued by the band on their own label, Lil Beethoven Records, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the seminal album.

When I first got mine on Amazon, it would not fit on my turntable! So I had to sand down the edges of the records to make it spin! The record company have obviously not press the width of it right! The first vinyl has such good sound but the second just sounds tacky on both sides!
Kazigrel
I really don't understand why it is so hard to get this album sounding 'right' on vinyl. Whilst this pressing is better than the recent Repertoire releases, it is still lacking: it's noisy, the percussion lacks emphasis and it is muddled. The first disc is listenable but the second disc is simply poor.If only decent quality original pressings were a reasonable price.
Whitegrove
(comment is based on the CD release) I think it sounds better than the Repertoire releases as there is more clarity, but it indeed sounds harsh as per the other comment. My ears are still ringing for instance.
Raniconne
The bonus tracks aren't great on the CD issue either. Nor is the album really. It's passable but harsh and boxy IMO. The Peter Cook promo spots are noisy vinyl transfers from old picture discs but that's OK.
