Production[edit]

In 2003, in an interview by Simon Price included on the DVD The Very Best of The Human League, Oakey was asked to comment on the experience of working with his idol Moroder on this project. He diplomatically characterises him as a "very quick worker", claiming they made the entire album in a few days.[4]
