In 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.”
The ‘Catalogue’ re-issue of ‘Actually’ includes the remastered original album with the 2-CD album features bonus material including the Shep Pettibone mix of ‘Heart’, and demo versions and alternative mixes of tracks including ‘One more chance’ and ‘Always on my mind’.

Packaged with an extensive booklet in which Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe discuss each song, illustrated with many archive photographs. The entire project is designed by Farrow.
