MR XXX SAYS .. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL .. Blasts from the past ..

LISTEN TO MY JUKEBOX!

Happy New Year!!!!

AND EVERYWHERE AT CHRISTMAS !!!

A new series of albums I've been working on for the past few months all released by EMI in the UK on vinyl, 8-track and cassette as part of their newly created TV advertising division during the late 70s and early 80s.


Many of the albums were huge successes in the UK, reaching number one and the top tiers of the charts for many weeks.


A number of these have never been released on CD, and are much sought after by collectors.


Buddy Holly & the Crickets - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 8 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1978)


Cliff Richard – 40 Golden Greats (EMTVS 6 UK) (2022 45th Anniversary Remastered Edition) (2CD) (1977)


Diana Ross & the Supremes - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 5 UK) (2022 Remastered 45th Anniversary Mono-Stereo Versions Expanded Edition) (2CD) (1977)


Diana Ross - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 21 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1979)


Frank Sinatra - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 10 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1978)


Glen Campbell - Glen Campbell's Twenty Golden Greats (EMTV 2 UK) (2021 45th Anniversary Remastered Expanded Edition) (1976)


Hot Chocolate - 20 Hottest Hits (EMTV 22 UK) (2022 Remastered Edition) (1979)


Manfred Mann - Semi-Detached Suburban - 20 Great Hits of the Sixties (EMTV 19 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1979)


Matt Monro - Heartbreakers - 20 Golden Greats from Matt Monro (EMTV 23 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1980)


Nat King Cole - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 9 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1978)


Neil Diamond - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 14 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1978)


Queen - Greatest Hits (EMTV 30 UK) (2021, 40th Anniversary Remastered Expanded Edition) (1981)


Suzi Quatro - Greatest Hits (EMTV 24 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1980)


The Beach Boys - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 1 UK) (2021 Remastered 45th Anniversary Mono-Stereo Versions Expanded Edition) (2CD) (1976)


The Beatles - A Collection of Beatles Oldies (But Goldies!) (Mono & Stereo Versions) (2021, 55th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) (1966)


The Beatles - The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl (EMTV 4 UK) (2016 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1977)


The Hollies - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 11 UK) (2022 Remastered Mono-Stereo Versions Expanded Edition) (2CD) (1978)


The Shadows - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 3 UK) (2022 Remastered 45th Anniversary Mono-Stereo Versions Expanded Edition) (2CD) (1977)


 Shadows - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 3 UK) (2022 Remastered 45th Anniversary Mono-Stereo Versions Expanded Edition) (2CD) (1977)

 

EMTV 3 UK (1977) 20 Golden Greats is a compilation album by UK band The Shadows. It was released in 1977. The album was in UK charts for 43 weeks, where it gained the number 1 position for 6 weeks.


I think we all have fond memories of seeing this album sitting on store shelves in WHSmith, Woolworth's and Boots back in 1977!


As a celebration of 45 years since this album first hit the shelves, here is my fully remastered special expanded 2CD edition.


I thought it might be interesting for the listener to compile this fantastic collection using the latest digital remasters in both mono and stereo.


CD1 contains all the original 7" mono hit single versions of the original 20 track album. CD2 contains all the stereo versions.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20_Golden_Greats_(The_Shadows_album)




Plus, here are a few more classic EMI TV advertised albums from the late 70s and early 80s, all fully remastered using the very latest, highest quality digital remasters released to date:



The Beach Boys - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 1 UK) (2021 Remastered 45th Anniversary Mono-Stereo Versions Expanded Edition) (2CD) (1976)


EMTV 1 UK (1976) 20 Golden Greats is a 1976 greatest hits album by the Beach Boys that was released in the UK by EMI's newly created TV advertising division. 

It became the second biggest selling album of the year, spending a total of 86 weeks on the UK Albums Chart and peaking at number one in July 1976, where it remained for 10 weeks.


*** COMPLETELY REMASTERED, updated and edited from the previous version I sent with better sounding mono and stereo mixes.


I thought it might be fun, (Fun, Fun) - ha ha! to compile this fantastic collection using

the latest digital remasters as The Beach Boys did in 2012 with all their albums in both mono and stereo.


CD1 features the original 20 tracks in the original 7" mono hit single versions, and CD2 features the original 20 tracks in stereo.


I still have my original vinyl album which topped the UK charts for 10 weeks during the long hot summer of '76!

Glen Campbell - Glen Campbell's Twenty Golden Greats (EMTV 2 UK) (2021 45th Anniversary Remastered Expanded Edition) (1976)


EMTV 2 UK (1976) Glen Campbell's Twenty Golden Greats was Glen Campbell's biggest selling album in the UK, reaching the top of the UK Albums Chart and staying on the chart for 27 weeks.


For this 2022 remaster I have now added 7 bonus tracks, all hit singles which were not featured on the original album due to time constraints, making a 27 track CD with a time length of 79:27.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glen_Campbell%27s_Twenty_Golden_Greats



The Beatles - The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl (EMTV 4 UK) (2016 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1977)


EMTV 4 UK (1977) The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl is a live album by the Beatles, released in May 1977, featuring songs compiled from three performances recorded at the Hollywood Bowl in August 1964 and August 1965. It was the band's first official live recording.


The album peaked at No. 1 in the UK album chart.


Live at the Hollywood Bowl was remixed, remastered and re-released on 9 September 2016 to coincide with the release of The Beatles: Eight Days a Week. It includes four additional songs not found on the original release.

Diana Ross & the Supremes - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 5 UK) (2022 Remastered 45th Anniversary Mono-Stereo Versions Expanded Edition) (2CD) (1977)


EMTV 5 UK (1977) 20 Golden Greats is a 1977 compilation album by Diana Ross & the Supremes, released on the Motown/EMTV label in the United Kingdom. The release spent seven weeks at number one on the UK Albums Chart, selling over 1,000,000 copies. Despite the album's title and that Ross & the Supremes had scored 21 UK chart hit singles, the compilation included two tracks that had never been hit singles in the UK: "My World Is Empty Without You" and "Love Is Like an Itching in My Heart", which were top 10 hits on the US Hot 100. All the other 18 tracks had made the UK singles chart. The three other hits scored by the group in partnership with The Temptations, were all excluded.


I thought it might be interesting for the listener to compile this fantastic collection using the latest digital remasters in both mono and stereo.


CD1 features the original 20 tracks in the original 7" mono hit single versions, and CD2 features the original 20 tracks in stereo.


I have now added 3 bonus tracks to make up the complete 21 UK chart hit singles, along with the 2 US Hot 100 top 10 hits to make a 23 track CD in both mono and stereo.

The album became an instant success in the UK, being certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry two months after the album's release and topping the UK Albums Chart for three weeks. It was also Buddy Holly's first number 1 album on the chart.


For this 2022 remaster I have now added 16 bonus tracks from 1956 to 1969, including many hit singles which were not featured on the original album due to time constraints, making a 36 track CD with a time length of 78:38.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20_Golden_Greats_(Buddy_Holly_%26_The_Crickets_album)

CD1 features the original 20 tracks in the original 7" mono hit single versions, and CD2 features the original 20 tracks in stereo.


I have now added 7 bonus tracks from 1963 to 1967, all singles which were not featured on the original album due to time constraints, making a 27 track CD with a time length of 78:12.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hollies:_20_Golden_Greats

For this 2022 remaster I have now added 4 bonus tracks from 1967 to 1978, all hit singles which were not featured on the original album due to time constraints, making a 24 track CD.


I have also included the incredibly rare and hard to find original 1969 7" 45 mono single mix of 'Sweet Caroline', where the orchestra and glockenspiel are more prominent than in the mostly heard stereo album version.

To my knowledge, the original mono single mix has never been released on CD.



Manfred Mann - Semi-Detached Suburban - 20 Great Hits of the Sixties (EMTV 19 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1979)


EMTV 19 UK (1979) Manfred Mann - Semi-Detached Suburban - 20 Great Hits of the Sixties is a compilation album by Manfred Mann released by EMTV in 1979 and peaked at No. 9 in the UK album chart.

Diana Ross - 20 Golden Greats (EMTV 21 UK) (2022 Remastered Expanded Edition) (1979)


EMTV 21 UK (1979) Diana Ross: 20 Golden Greats is a compilation album by Diana Ross, released on the Motown label in Europe in 1979. Although Ross had scored 22 single hits in the UK since leaving The Supremes in 1970, the album only contained the 18 solo tracks that had charted for Ross in the UK, together with the two tracks that had charted in partnership with Marvin Gaye. Both the hit singles Ease on Down (with Michael Jackson) and Pops, We Love You (with Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder) were excluded in favour of solo hits. By the time the album was released, Ross had already scored her 23rd post-Supremes hit single (her 19th solo) with It's My House, which was thus not included. The album was released just two years after the 20 Golden Greats compilation featuring 18 of her 21 UK hits with The Supremes. The album was certified Platinum in the U.K for sales in excess of 300,000 copies.


The album was released for the international market and became the singer's best charting album in the UK since another greatest hits collection (released in 1976) also peaked at #2. Due to the large number of tracks included and the time limitations of the vinyl album format the running time of several titles were changed and were either slightly edited or had fade-out ends. The 20 Golden Greats album remains officially unreleased on CD.


This 2022 remaster features the complete, unedited original 7" single versions.


I have now added 6 bonus tracks, all hit singles in the UK from April 1971 up to October 1979 with 'It's My House' which were not featured on the original album due to time constraints, making a 26 track CD.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20_Golden_Greats_(Diana_Ross_album)

featured on the 1979 LP and cassette release.

The album remains officially unreleased on CD.
