1987, Pet Shop Boys released their second album 'Actually,' which became another huge hit album for the duo, debuting at the number 2 spot on the UK Albums Chart upon its release.
The album was produced by Julian Mendelsohn, Stephen Hague, Shep Pettibone, Andy Richards and Pet Shop Boys. This period saw Pet Shop Boys reach new critical and commercial heights with three number one singles, "It's A Sin," "Always On My Mind" and "Heart," and "What Have I Done To Deserve This," their number two single featuring Dusty Springfield.
As Neil Tennant puts it: "I felt at this time that we had the secret of contemporary pop music, that we knew what was required."
Pet Shop Boys release the third set of albums in their definitive "Catalogue: 1985-2012" series of reissues of all their Parlophone studio albums. The PSB albums 'Please' from 1986, 'Actually' from 1987 and 1988's 'Introspective' are the next in line. The albums have been remastered and repackaged, and will be accompanied by "Further Listening" albums of master quality bonus tracks - including demos, extended mixes and remixes of tracks from the albums and others created in the same period as each record.
