A few years the cast of Coronation Street recorded an album. Mavis and Derek sang "I Remember It Well" from "Gigi", Mike and Alma duetted on "Something Stupid" and although there were some guest stars it was actually a Street album.
This is just a collection of songs since 1960, none of which (apart from the theme tune) has anything real relevance to Coronation Street. Would it not be better if Granada wanted to celebrate the show's 50th birthday to release another album of the stars of the Street singing. They don't even have to be current cast members - Tracy Shaw (Maxine Peacock) released a couple of singles, Violet Carson (Ena Sharples) tickled the ivories and, of course, Sir Norman Wisdom even appeared on the Weatherfield cobbles.
Of the current cast, Sue Nicholls (Audrey) charted with "Where Will You Be?", Barbara Knox has sung professionally and so has Betty Driver - would it not be a more fitting tribute to the Street to have a real (or reel) Weatherfield album, not just a collection of songs which however good they may be have nowt to do with the Street...
