K Tells Vol. 17

K tells -   Spaced Out!

VA - StarTrackin' '76 - 20 Starburstin' Original Hits (Ronco RTL 2014 UK) (2021 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1975)       Not issued by K-tel, StarTrackin' '76 was originally released in 1975 by Ronco, and was heavily advertised on TV. There were three versions of this album released. The UK, US and Canada releases all featured different track listings. I went for the UK edition as it has the superior track listing overall. I expanded the original 20 tracks by adding 4 of the best songs (3 number 1's and a number 2) as bonus cuts from the US and Canadian editions to make a 24 track, 78:22 minute CD length compilation. GREAT cover artwork too!

VA - Starflight - Original Stars - Original Hits (K-tel TU 2820 US - TC 259 CAN) (2021 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1979)       Starflight was originally released by K-tel in 1979 in both the US and Canada. They each had different track listings, although Elton John's 'Mama Can't Buy Me Love', Cheap Trick's 'I Want You to Want Me (Live at Budokan)', Peter Frampton's 'I Can't Stand It No More' and M's 'Pop Muzik' appear on both.  This 2021 expanded remaster has been newly compiled to include the very best track selections from both versions; 14 from the US edition, and 8 from the Canadian edition, making a 22 track compilation with a running time of 78:06 CD length.

VA - Space Invasion - 20 Galactic Hits (Ronco RTL 2051 UK) (2021 Remaster) (1980)        Not issued by K-tel, Space Invasion was originally released in 1980 by Ronco in the UK only, and was heavily advertised on TV. Quite an interesting concept for a compilation album featuring 20 space, galactic, alien and UFO themed songs, and is really very good. Featuring all the original unedited 7" single mixes, fully remastered including a few hard to find tracks not seen on other compilations.

Enjoy!
