Top of the Pops records: In England the Top of the Pops LPs had huge sales. They had nothing to do with the television show, which featured the original artists but the modestly paid session men on Pickwick’s LPs achieved sales so huge that the records were banned from the charts lest they embarrass the creators of original artists. Pickwick’s good run ended when big labels realised they could lease the original hits to labels such as K-Tel which squashed ten to a side.

Abba - the original Greatest Hits. I have very particular memories of this album

Remember When?

RPM! You knew right away when you got it wrong. And sometimes I played it at the wrong speed just for fun.

Good: It's a nice, oldschool photo of the entire Star Trek TOS crew. Bad: Scotty and Chekov are pushed way too far in the back! ;n;

Many a VCR recording

Recorder - I had this model but didn't get too far past 'London's Burning'...

K-Tel Records...I think I had/have every one put out in the 70's. They were really good albums, too.
