Volume 2 (HM 600) - September 1968
Well, ravers, here's the second of our "Top of the Pops" albums! Look at the tracks - every one a chart buster! This is a swinging, catchy, groovy disc that will set your fingers snapping and your feet tapping. It's bouncy and breezy and bright. It's a real fun record to have, and you'll really jump to the sound of our talented musicians and vocalists.
So grab this album, take it to a rave-up - and have a ball!
Comments: With the pop charts having been somewhat less than memorable over the summer, The Beatles came to the rescue with the launch of their Apple label in September. As a result, the group's "Hey Jude" appears here, the first ever Apple record, as does its B-side, "Revolution". (Very few B-sides would ever feature in the Top of the Pops series.) And Apple's second single was also a smash hit, Mary Hopkin's "Those Were The Days" topping the UK charts.
