Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
Our random article today is No. 1 in Heaven.
No. 1 in Heaven is the eighth album by the American rock band Sparks. Recorded with 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. The album is the first and only of the band's to be issued on Elektra Records, the 4th label the band was signed to in the US. The first US editions of the LP contained content identical to the original Virgin UK release, but later editions substituted the 12" extended mix of "Beat the Clock" for the album version.
