The Human League
Credo
Biography 2011
The Human League are so credible it’s incredible. In fact, they’re probably more highly regarded in 2011 than they were in 1981 when they released their landmark album Dare!
They’re used to everyone from Madonna to Moby, Pet Shop Boys to Robbie Williams, citing them as an influence. Now the dubstep generation – notably, ... Read more in Amazon's Human League Store

Editorial Reviews

The popularity of The Human League never seems to wane, with constant sell-out tours and festival appearances (Homelands and Big Gay Out in 2005). 2005 saw the League back on a 16-date tour of the UK in November. To coincide with their touring activities, a collection of original 12-inch remixes of their most popular tracks are features, many of which have not been on CD before - such as the full unedited versions of 'The Sound Of The Crowd', 'Open Your Heart' and 'The Lebanon'. Additionally, 'Love Action' and 'Hard Times Instrumental 12-inches were only previously available on a CD single, and the rest of the tracks (bar the Extended Electric Dreams which came out on the reissued Oakey & Moroder CD reissue) are currently only to be found as bonus tracks on various US and International pressings. EMI. 2005.

2.0 out of 5 stars Virgin Dropped The ball... November 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD release was nothing short of a miracle for Human League fans who wanted the catalogue to finally be completed on a CD issue. The idea was to give fans the remixes and b-sides that were only available on deleted vinyl. The original announced CD had a very different track listing. All of these songs, except for You Remind Me of Gold were already available on CD. For anyone who will ask, The 12" version of The Sound of the Crowd was released on two CD compilations previously. Classic Alternatives Vol 1 and the other I can't rememeber. Anyway, the "remastered" sound leaves a lot to be desired here. There are pops and clicks that can be heard on both the extended version of Life on Your Own and on Non-stop. It sounded as if the source recording was vinyl. It's a shame because Caroline Records treats their Human League re-issues as a labor of love. Both of these songs appear on their re-issues of Dare and Hysteria, and the songs sound much better than on this CD. Also the beginning of the Don't You Want Me remix has very noticable analog hiss, though they did manage to keep the tempo correct (it was sped up on the Love & Dancing CD in order to mix it in with the previous song). The remix of Fascination has also been edited. Why this was done I don't know. It now fades out at the end...Also, the alternate version of Marianne, only available on the Australian vinyl version of Travelogue is nowhere to be seen on this compilation. The same can be said about the original (better) all synth version of I Love You Too Much, which can only be found on the Fascination EP on vinyl and cassette.

Very disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality-pops and clicks etc Human League remixes July 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
While there are some pops and clicks on some of these recordings it is not because the recording source is suspect it is because the tracks that have those artifacts where created back between 1981 and 83 when samplers where hugely expensive- hard to get and didnt have much memory at all- the way the producer created most of the non stop unlimited remixes was with a
good old razor blade and tape. A skill that is dieing off. The producer- Martin Rushent- has been said that most of these remixes had SO MANY cuts and edits in the original tape that many times it could only be run through the machine once or twice before it would disintegrate!!! Be glad that these are availible as many many other great artists from the best period of new music (late 70's early to mid 80's) are still not on CD and possibly never will be. While the record companies pump out tons of garbage that has no right to be released tons of great stuff will sit in vaults- people that would spend good money will wait forever- point in case the first two albums (1980 and 81) by Polyrock. They where FINALLY just released on a small label and you had better snatch them up while you can cause the value of them will skyrocket just like the double CD of The Producers(the New Wave-Power Pop band not the remade movie) albums- they where released on a small label on cd and now less then 9 years later they are fetching 80 bucks or so!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Hard Times" on cd! Finally! June 10, 2009
By david
Format:Audio CD
Great CD! I had always hoped they would release the Fascination! EP on cd. Just for the extra tracks. This is just about it! It has the right "Hard Times" version (the "Hard Times" on the reissue of Dare isn't quite the same). "Mirror Man" and "You Remind Me of Gold", great to have this on CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars (almost) Perfect! November 9, 2005
By Lucas
Format:Audio CD
Many people waited years and years for this thing to come out. If only for The Sound Of The Crowd (12" Version) it is worth to buy. I must say that the track-listing isn't quite right here. I saw it on several other sites. Track 3 isn't Love Action (Instrumental Mix) but it's Hard Times (Instrumental Mix). Track 4 is Non-Stop (B-side of Open Your Heart), track 5 is Don't You Want Me (Special Extended Dance Mix), track 6 is Mirror Man (Extended Mix), track 7 is You Remind Me Of Gold (Mirror Man B-side), track 8 is (Keep Feeling) Fascination (Improvisation), track 9 is Total Panic (Fascination B-side), track 10 is The Lebanon (Extended), track 11 is Life On Your Own (Extended), track 12 is Together In Electric Dreams (Extended), track 13 is Human (Extended) and finally track 14 is Heart Like a Wheel (Extended). So, as you can see, there is no Love Action (Instrumental Mix), Open Your Heart (12"Version) or Love Is All That Matters (Jam & Lewis Mix). Instead of them, you'll get some really cool B-sides and remixes.
