The History Mix Volume 1 is the sixth album by British pop band Godley & Creme. The album was a remix of songs spanning the career of Godley & Creme and their earlier bands, 10cc, Doctor Father and Hotlegs. The album produced two singles, "Cry" and the remix of "Golden Boy", the former which became a groundbreaking video clip featuring numerous "changing faces" that cross-faded from one to another as they mimed the lyrics to the song.

The album bears the notation "Volume 1", but to date this has been the only such venture under the Godley and Cr�me name. The potential for a second volume is certainly there in terms of material by 10CC and G&C which was not used here, but whether the demand is there is questionable. Perhaps this should remain a largely successful and enjoyable one off exercise.

Godley & Creme were an English rock duo formed in Stockport in 1977 by Kevin Godley and Lol Creme. The pair began releasing music as a duo after their departure from the rock band 10cc. In 1979, they directed their first music video with the single "An Englishman in New York". Their 1984 single "Golden Boy" was included on 1985's The History Mix Volume 1 album which celebrated 25 years of recording together. The album, co-produced by J. J. Jeczalik of Art of Noise, remixed samples of their previous recordings to a disco beat. This album also contained the single "Cry" which, helped in part by the video, became their biggest US hit, reaching No. 16. The song reached No. 19 in the UK. A video cassette was also released with visual imagery to complement the music. Godley & Creme released their final album, Goodbye Blue Sky, in 1988.

The History Mix Volume 1. Godley & Creme. The History Mix Volume 1 Tracklist.

A decade after Kevin Godley and Lol Creme walked out on 10cc and took half of that band's magic with them, the pair convened a reunion of sorts with The History Mix, Vol. 1, the ultimate ideal of all that the then-infant industry of remixing had to offer. With producer Trevor Horn at the helm, the overall sound of the album is very much a child of its age – however, the only moment that has truly dated is the insertion of a reference to Hill Street Blues into a fragmented "Rubber Bullets. Nevertheless, it's an album that is best recommended only to fans who actually know the original songs, and who'll appreciate the fresh landscapes into which they've been spliced – one reason, presumably, for the CD reissue of the album adding in a handful of other, more conventional Godley & Creme concoctions.
