Heaven 17 deluxe editions

Penthouse and Pavement & The Luxury Gap

Heaven 17’s first two studio albums, 1981’s Penthouse and Pavement and The Luxury Gap from 1983 are being reissued on both vinyl and CD formats.

2CD sets of both, in deluxe seven-inch packaging offer A-sides, B-sides, demos and 12-inch versions on their respective bonus discs, while half-speed vinyl editions (mastered by Barry Grint at AIR Mastering) are pressed on 180g vinyl and come with an OBI-strip and 4-page insert.

Both albums are classics, with Penthouse in particular still brilliant, despite great songs such as ‘(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang’ and ‘Play to Win’ not being actual hits. The Luxury Gap was a fine follow-up and features Heaven 17’s biggest single, ‘Temptation’ which reached number two on the UK chart.

Both albums will be reissued by Demon Music on 26 July 2024.
