    The UK’s most successful duo of all time need no introduction – The Pet Shop Boys’ 12 UK Top 10 albums (with 7 certified platinum and total sales over 2.5 million records) and their 40 UK Top 20 singles (with 5.4 million sold in the UK alone) simply speak for themselves. Their mountain of hit singles also contain a perhaps less well-known but equally exquisite collection of b-sides and bonus tracks. To celebrate this prolific song-writing and recording, an incredible 38 b-sides and bonus tracks have now been collected together from singles released between 1996 to 2009, to create ‘Format’. Available digitally and as 2CD in a lift-off lid box, all tracks on ‘Format’ have been remastered and the box booklet features an interview with Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe by Jon Savage (author of ‘England's Dreaming’ and ‘Teenage’). ‘Format’ follows on from the 1995 release, ‘Alternative’, which collected the duo's b-sides from 1985 to 1994.

    Notes

    Audio Remasterer: Tim Young .
    Liner Note Author: Jon Savage .
    Arranger: Pet Shop Boys.
    A sequel to the earlier release, Alternative, the Pet Shop Boys' Format rounds up the duo's B-sides and bonus tracks from the years 1996-2009. All of the 38 tracks included have been remastered by the duo and just like Alternative, the liner notes include an interview with the group conducted by writer Jon Savage. Look for a special appearance from Sir Elton John on a re-recording of the album cut "In Private."
