TOP OF THE POPS – VOLUME 32 (HALLMARK) 1973

THE ROCKING-EST COVER VERSIONS EVER TO HIT THE POP WORLD


TOP OF THE POPS – “Volume 32” (Hallmark SHM 830) August 1973

This was a recent find in an actual record shop in Newcastle and I had to pay retail prices for this one and a few other budget label items. But for £3 I get some really decent cover versions of Gary Glitter, David Bowie, Slade and Mungo Jerry.

There are scratches all over this slab of wax, it looks like the kid who owned it before me was skating on it while watching ‘Captain Pugwash’ on the tele.

Sleeve notes:
As we were saying on the Sleeve of our last TOP OF THE POPS album (SHM 825 – Volume 31), this series is “the recording phenomenon of today”; and you all helped us to keep up the fantastic pace. That last issue was one of our best sellers in a best selling series – and in the middle of summer, too!

Now, look at the 12 great tracks we’ve chosen for you on this album. We think they’re great – but we also hope you will think them great. We’ve tried so very hard to give you high-up-in-the-charts songs and, as always, the finest value for money in the history of LP albums.

So, here we go again, let’s have a ball once more with this, the rocking-est cover version ever to hit the Pop World. We hope it grabs you.
