Volume 32 (SHM 830) - August 1973
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 L.P. 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.
Comments: This LP contains a respected version of David Bowie's "Life On Mars". Mojo (Issue 82, September 2000) said of the recording, "An unusual one, cloaked in a grandiose orchestral arrangement which leaves the original standing. Bowie should have been produced by Bruce Baxter."
