K Tells Vol. 13

K Tells Vol. 13

K tells - 

...and the 'Hits' Just Keep on Comin'!

VA - Hit Power - Original Hits - Original Artists (Arcade ADE G20 GER) (2021 Remaster) (1976)   Hit Power was not released by K-tel, but by one of their contemporaries Arcade in 1976. This was a Germany only compilation featuring 20 smash chart hits, which were also hits in the UK and all over Europe at the time.  Includes the extremely rare and much sought after 3:15 original 7" single version of Donna Summer's 'Could It Be Magic', which has never been released on CD. This 2021 remaster features all the complete original unedited 7" single mixes, including a few hard to find tracks, some never released on CD with a new running time of 70:05 CD length.

VA - Hit Machine - 46 Original Hits - 46 Original Stars (K-tel TE 713 UK - TU 2480 USA - TC 234 CAN - TB 285 BRA) (2021 Remastered Expanded Edition) (2CD) (1976)      Hit Machine was originally released by K-tel in 1976 in four different countries. It was released in the UK, USA, Canada and Brazil. They each had different track listings, and different cover artwork. Take a look in the 'Artwork' folder of your download for all the different front and back covers, record labels and track lists of each country. For this 2021 remastered expanded edition, I have selected the 46 very best tracks from all four versions for a special 2CD set.

Disc 1 comprises of 24 of the very best song selections with a running time of 79:32 CD length.

Disc 2 comprises of 22 of the very best song selections with a running time of 78:07 CD length.

VA - Hit Action - 20 Original Hits - 20 Original Stars (K-tel NE 993 UK) (2021 Remaster) (1977)      Hit Action was originally released by K-tel in the UK only in 1977 on vinyl and cassette, and contained 20 smash hits. This 2021 remaster features all the complete original unedited 7" single mixes, including a few hard to find tracks, some never released on CD with a new running time of 69:21 CD length.

Enjoy!

    1. You're welcome g8rrick.

  3. Thanks for so many great compilations! I have enjoyed so many of the sets you have posted and have recommended your site to many of my friends. Today's K-Tells and the latest Lucky Dip were problematic though - I downloaded the files but my computer blocked them saying they were 'dangerous'. This had not occurred at anytime before. I went to another site and downloaded a file to see if it would happen when I downloaded from there and there was no problem. Has anyone else reported this problem? Hopefully it will rectify itself because I really love checking in with your page and seeing what new delights are in store every day. Thanks again.

    1. Hi Ken,
      Thanks for letting me know but i can assure you it is not from me.
      I have had everything fully analyzed and no problems noted.
      My google account sometime blocks files due to the settings I have. Possibly its in peoples set up with their browsers.
      Cheers.

  4. 'Dangerous File" - As ken.grady reports.....
    I have had similar issues today. The work around seems fine. Probably a Google or such-like filter!?
    Cheers

  6. You know how much I love the K-Tel's. This one does not disappoint either! BTW, I started getting the download issues from Chrome and the new update of their security feature. One adjustment and it is no issue. I already have Norton, so I definitely don't need Google to tell me it's misinformation/disinformation
