The Human League Anthology - A Very British Synthesizer Limited Vinyl 3LP Set

“Anthology – A Very British Synthesizer Group” is the story of The Human League; no ordinary pop group. Their co-founders have long gone. The lead singer continues the band with two women still known to many as ‘the girls.’ Variously, during their thirty-nine-year existence, they have included in their ranks a core member who initially played no instrument and contributed no sound; a tape machine taking the place of a human drummer centre-stage; two female singers who by their own admission couldn’t really sing (at least initially); and later in the group’s career a revolving-door policy of semi-permanent contributors, live and studio boffins who, although never legally credited as members of the band would, in essence, be part of The Human League.

To say this is the story of one pop group is misleading. As Britain’s answer to Kraftwerk they were already interested in electronic music at the time the Dusseldorf band was making its breakthrough with Autobahn in 1975 and The Human League’s initial recordings date to early 1977 when Bowie released Low.

Back in the late Seventies and early Eighties, music wasn’t streamed or given away but sought out and championed. This was the era of the ‘super-fan’, the people who followed and debated the merits of David Bowie, Roxy Music, The Sex Pistols, Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, Michael Jackson… The Human League.

All formats contain 8 Top 10 singles including the Number 1 hit, Don’t You Want Me ( #1 in December 1981 ) and 6 Top 20 hits.
