Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Original members of Sheffield's Human League, Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh left after the first two albums and formed Heaven 17 in 1980. Named after a fictional band in Anthony Burgess's "A Clockwork Orange", they recruited Glenn Gregory on vocals (who had been the original choice for lead singer of the Human League). Released in April 1983, second album "The Luxury Gap" featured the Top 5 hits "Temptation" and "Come Live With Me" Me", as well as "Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry" and "Let Me Go". The album was certified Platinum in February 1984 for sales of over 300,000. This new edition has been expertly mastered by Barry Grint at AIR Mastering from the original stereo tapes using precision half speed mastering. Half speed mastering is a vinyl cutting technique that improves groove accuracy and transient information creating an incredibly detailed stereo image with a natural high frequency response. Presented in it's original sleeve, pressed on 180 gram heavyweight black vinyl, featuring an obi strip and housed in a poly lined inner sleeve, with all the lyrics and credits plus photos on the 4 page insert.
