K Tells Vol. 19

 

K Tells Vol. 19


K tells -   Yes, it's Number One, it's Top of the Pops!

All three of these albums were the titles of smash hit #1 songs, but surprisingly not one featured the actual songs!

Good Vibrations - 22 Original Hits - 22 Original Artists (Ronco RR 2004 UK - P 11773 US - CSPS 661 CAN) (2021 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1973)        When this album was originally released by Ronco in 1973, you would have automatically assumed by the title that the Beach Boys 'Good Vibrations'

would have been included. It was not. I have now put things to rights and added this classic 1966 number one hit as a bonus. The album was released in the UK, US and Canada all with different track listings. I've compiled this 2021 remaster to include the best tracks from all versions, expanding to a 26 track compilation with a running time of 79:49 CD length.

Get It On! - 20 Original Hits - 20 Original Artists (Ronco P 12101 US - CSPS 783 CAN) (2021 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1974)        When this album was originally released by Ronco in 1974, you would have automatically assumed by the title that T. Rex's 'Get It On' would have been included. It was not. I have now put things to rights and added this classic 1971 number one hit as a bonus.  The album was released in both the US and Canada with virtually identical track listings. This 2021 remaster is now expanded to 22 tracks, with a total running time of 75:20 CD length.

Block Buster - 20 Original Hits - 20 Original Stars (K-tel TU 2430 US - TC 229 CAN) (2021 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1976)          When this album was originally released by K-tel in 1976, you would have automatically assumed by the title that The Sweet's 'Block Buster!' would have been included. It was not. I have now put things to rights and added this classic 1973 number one hit as a bonus. The album was released in both the US and Canada with different track listings.   I've compiled this 2021 remaster to include the best tracks from both versions; 15 from the US edition, and 8 from the Canadian edition, making a 23 track compilation with a running time of 79:51 CD length.


Enjoy!
