Here are some photos I took for recent Further Listening booklet covers (haven't done Yes or Elysium yet). Don't know if they're good enough, but you're welcome to use them on your iTunes:

Pet Shop Boys

1987-1988

Actually, the second Pet Shop Boys studio
album, was released in September 1987. ‘We hadn’t
toured, which we were supposed to do at the end of
1986, and I think it was a strength, because we spent
quite a while writing songs,’ says Neil. The idea was
to make it more musically ambitious. Bigger-sounding.
The arrangements slightly more adventurous. My
criticism of this album is that i don’t think it hangs
together as well as some of our other albums. But it
definitely marked a high point of our success.’

‘Very exciting times,’ echoes Chris, then adds,
wryly, ‘I knew it was never going to last.’

The first song recorded for Actually was their
collaboration with Dusty Springfield, ‘What have I
done to deserve this?’. Though it was produced by
Stephen Hague, who had produced Please, the Pet
Shop Boys had already decided that this time they
wanted to work with a variety of producers. Over the
next few months they recorded with Hague, but
approached a number of other people and worked
with Julian Mendelsohn (whom they’d first worked
with on the single version of ‘Suburbia’), Andy
Richards (whom they’d met as Julian Mendelsohn’s
programmer) and Shep Pettibone (the New York
dance producer who had remixed ‘West End girls’,
‘Love comes quickly’ and ‘Opportunities’.).

The album was preceded by two singles, ‘It’s a
sin’ in June and ‘What have I done to deserve this?’ in
August. Subsequently they released a remix of ‘Rent’
in October and then, after the non-album single
‘Always On My Mind’ in November, a different version
of ‘Heart’ from the Actually version came out in March
1988. In Britain, ‘It’s a sin’, ‘Always On My Mind’ and
‘Heart’ all reached number one; ‘What have I done to
deserve this?’ was only blocked by Rick Astley’s
immovable‘Never Gonna Give You Up’.

‘As soon as Actually came out we planned
another tour and promptly cancelled it,’ Neil
remembers. ‘We did lots of promotion instead. We
were still having hits in America, and I felt at this time
that we had the secret of contemporary pop music,

that we knew what was required. We entered our
imperial phase. We did our thing with Dusty, we made
a film, It couldn’t happen here. It was exciting.’

‘It was a very busy time,’ says Chris. 'I can’t
really remember much about it. Just hectic. What was
good was, a lot of British people were successful in
Europe so we were always at airports with the rock
and pop fraternity. It was really great - you’d arrive at
Heathrow and everyone would be there: Depeche
Mode, The Smiths, Nick Kamen, Paul Weller, Eighth
Wonder. And you’d be, “Oh God, look who’s over
there”.’

‘...The Spands...The Human League,’
continues Neil. ‘Every time we had a number one
Susanne would phone me up. She’d say, ‘Well, you’re
number one - Philip’s dead jealous’.’

They had thought of the title, Actually, early on,
and then, typically, went off it, and decided not to use
it. Eventually they came round. ‘It was so English and
kind of arch and it was kind of a joke and it was
something we said a lot,’ says Neil. ‘And also it could
be a sentence - “Pet Shop Boys, actually” - which
Gchoed Please ’

For the sleeve, they had first commissioned a
painting of the two of them by a Scottish artist, Alison
Watt, who had just won the National Portrait Gallery
competition. She wanted them to sit for three weeks,
they persuaded her to paint from photostaken of
them in her Glasgow flat. But Chris hated himself in
the finished portrait, and Neil didn’t think it was the
right album cover anyway, so they began searching
through recent photos of themselves. At the last
moment, they realised that the best photo was one
which had been taken by Cindy Palmano on the set
of the ‘What have I done to deserve this?’ video, They
had initially dismissed it as a sleeve image becaus
they were wearing dinner jackets and bow ties,
yawning next to Chris,’ says Neil. ‘She’d done a
session backstage, with a metallic background,
the very first photograph we’d just sat down an
yawned because I was tired. ’

Unfortunately, the photograph had already
been sent to Smash Hits magazine for their next
cover, which went to press the following day.
Desperate phone calls were made, and the Pet Shop
Boys agreed to do a new photo session that evening
for Smash Hits, and in return got back the yawning
image. ‘Then,’ Neil recalls, ‘Mark had the idea of
making it white and cutting out the background.’
They knew it was good - ‘it was very un-
whatever everyone else was doing,’ says Neil -
though that still didn’t mean Chris liked it. ‘I hate the
photo,’ he says. ‘I can’t stand the way I look in it. I
hate wearing a bloody dickie-bow, I hate wearing a
white shirt and I hate the way my hair is. Straight after
that video I had my hair cropped.’

‘It’s very much the defining image of the Pet
Shop Boys,’ Neil reflects.

‘Ennui,’says Chris.

‘It was a good and a bad image,’ Neil
considers. ‘It was one of those things that maybe
people wonder whether we were serious or not. In
fact that album itself is pretty serious. Even the jokes
are serious jokes.’

I'm not really supporting piracy, but on the other hand, it's not like they're gonna digitize them anytime soon, and I'm pretty sure everyone on this forum has bought their albums several times already, so...

All the text is already online.

It's not like these texts or scans are being sold or anything.

They are a backup for the booklets, and a lot more convenient to read.

If someone wants a backup for their own use, they would do the same thing.

Liner notes are still creative copyrights. And the "new" versions will soon be ready for sale. If PSB partnership get hold of this that could mean trouble for this forum.

The number of images and videos we share in here technically covered by copyright... the forum would grind to a halt if we were strict about it.

That photo for 2005-2007 has no artistic merit whatsoever. It's possibly the worst picture ever of them. Can anyone tell me why in the name of Bowie they chose that picture?

Could someone do me a favor, and check if the last page or 2 pages of the booklet for 'release' have
the credits for all the songs. I think i forgot to scan those.

If so, i'll add those in when i get them.
