    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.
