Triple vinyl LP pressing. The story of The Human League encompasses three very distinct line-ups, all of which have their merits but one thing unites them; The Human League are A Very British Synthesizer Group. This anthology features all of the hit singles, including seven previously unreleased edits. The Human League formed in Sheffield in 1977. After signing to Virgin Records in 1979, the band released two albums and a string of singles before attaining widespread commercial success with their third album Dare in 1981. The only constant band member since 1977 has been lead singer and songwriter Philip Oakey. Under Oakey’s leadership, The Human League then evolved into a commercially successful pop band with a new line-up including female vocalists Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley. Since the mid-1990s, the band has essentially been a trio of Oakey, Catherall and Sulley with various sidemen.
