Volume 8 (CHM 660) - November 1969
This is our eighth "Top of the Pops" Album bringing together, as usual, twelve hits of the day onto one LP, a presentation virtually impossible for the original (single) versions.
We get letters asking how it can happen that these Hallmark recordings can be as good as - and, indeed at times better than - their counterparts on the charts. Well, let us tell you for sure that it ain't easy!
If there is a secret it has many parts - the care and attention paid to every bar of every number prior to sessions; the choice of vocalists and musicians; their skill and application at the fall of the baton; the use of the best studios and engineers; and the endless trouble taken in the Mixing Room where up to eight separate tracks are blended into a Stereo Master.
And this is how you come to enjoy endless hours of pleasure for as long as you like.
Comments: This LP made number 3 on the budget album charts.
