Their first album "Please" was pretty good and "Actually" is almost even better. 4 hit singles : the dramatic and cult tune "It's A Sin", their magical duet with Dusty Springfield "What Have I Done To Deserve This", the haunting "Rent" and the poppy and light-hearted well "Heart".

And like in "Please", again, even the album tracks are very good, the surprising and ingenious "Shopping", the stomper "Hit Music", the harmonic "I Want To Wake Up" and finally the prescient "King's Cross".

"Please" was a classic and "Actually" is perhaps their true masterpiece.

I've just seen a copy of this with no title on the spine, just the catalogue number. It looks as new so I really don't think it's worn off. It's A1-1-1/B1-1-1. My later copy has the full title on the spine. Was the artwork retouched?

Track 2-7 Heart (Disco Mix) is 10 seconds longer than the same version on the original Heart CD single. It's not a different version, it has been slowed down a bit resulting in a lower pitch and a longer duration.

The Japanese release of Actually comes complete with a free 7" single of "Always on my mind" as a gift to the Japanese fans from the Pet Shop Boys.

1-6 Does not, as far as I know, contain any contribution from Mr Morricone.

It seems like some were sold with a sticker on the front cover »Incl. NO.1 HIT "It's A Sin"« AND TOP-HIT "What Have I Done To Deserve This?"

This entry uses the exact same image for the CD face as one posted for a different CD entry:
http://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-Actually/release/2536986
When you save both images and MD5 them, they have the exact digital signatures.

Since the other entry took care to post images of the front and the back of the CD, I would presume this entry swiped the other entry's CD face image. The only reason I care is because I have a disc that I believe would have fit this entry, but it's got a slightly different face on it.
