Various Artists – Chart Hits (1983)
Various Artists - Chart Hits (Discogs Entry)
Several years ago I shared a house with a guy (as opposed to a gentleman) who was a drunken douchebag. I only lived there for a couple of months before leaving, part of which was related to my rent being a week late, part of which was because I actually called him a douchebag, which was apparently a sore spot with him.
Anyway, while living there, said D.B. was cleaning out a closet when he gave me a couple of albums, one of which was Roxy Music’s Avalon, t’other was this: Another great K-Tel look at the early 80s in less than an hour.
Let’s get down to it then: The Kinks, Duran Duran, Eurythmics,
Styx, Rick Springfield, The Stray Cats, and Culture Club. The record was pretty beat up when I
digitized it, so I was forced to rely on approximately 10-15 seconds of (discretely
placed) digital splices from my collection.
These clips are difficult to locate, even for me, and I’m the one who
put them there.
