K-Tells Vol. 22

 

K-Tells Vol. 22

K-Tells,  That's Right! Get Up and Boogie!

VA - Boogie Nights - 20 Original Disco Hits (Ronco RTL 2027 UK - R-2240 US) (2021 Remaster) (1978)          This album was originally released by Ronco in 1978 in both the UK and US. They each had different track listings, although Heatwave's 'Boogie Nights' and Ram Jam's 'Black Betty' appear on both. I've compiled this 2021 remaster to include the very best track selections from both versions; 13 from the UK edition, and 10 from the US, making a 23 track compilation with a new running time of 79:18 CD length.

VA - Boogie Fever - 22 Original Hits - 22 Original Artists (Ronco RTL 2034 UK) (2022 Remastered Edition) (1978)         Originally released by Ronco in 1978 in the UK only, this album contains quite a few hard to find tracks:

  • Rhythm of Life - Afro-Cuban Band
  • Singin' in the Rain - Sheila B. Devotion
  • Blame It on the Boogie - Mick Jackson
  • Black Is Black - La Belle Epoque
  • If My Friends Could See Me Now - Linda Clifford

These songs have never been released on CD in their original UK 7" single mix form. This album is fully remastered from the very latest CD reissues and original UK 7" vinyl rips.

VA - Blame It on the Boogie (K-tel NA 664 AUS) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1984)          Blame It on the Boogie was released by K-tel in Australia only in 1984. Initially containing 20 smash hit tracks, I have expanded the set to include two more 'boogie' songs (taken from previous K-tel albums) both released before 1984, the original album release date.  This 2022, 22 track expanded edition features all the complete original unedited 7" single mixes, fully remastered with a new running time of 77:46 CD length.

Enjoy!

  2. I love the K-Tels! I was surprised that given the chance to add Boogie Fever by the Sylvers that it wasn't added on the Ronco comp, but no matter, all the tracks are gems!
