Product Description

Product Description

Coronation Street celebrates its 50th anniversary in December 2010, and it’s now the longest running continuing drama in the world. This album takes the early years of the show in the 60s & 70s as the inspiration, and consists of the kind of songs you could well have heard in The Rovers at that time! The official theme is also included. An official product of the 50th anniversary, there is a bonus DVD of two full length episodes from 1969 & 1975 featuring Hilda Ogden, Bet Lynch, Annie Walker and Albert Tatlock. They have never been on DVD before, and are classic Christmas episodes from the Corrie archives.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nowt to do with t'Street 9 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
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...

The first album can be found here: Coronation Street Album Various

3.0 out of 5 stars Just another marketing ploy 5 Aug 2012
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
As another review here points out Coronation Street has had many actors and actresses who actually made records as well as creating its own Top 20 hit in Chris Sandford's Not too little not too much.We stopped watching it after the pub burnt down and for all I know its probably now full of 4 letter words.
The Golden Age was the 60s and 70s after both Peter Noone and Davy Jones had appeared so its rather pointless to issue CDs like this
In the recent TV film about the beginnings of what was then called Floradora Street or something before they came up with the name its now known under worldwide some character on the Board of Granada says "it will never take off because Northern accents are the accents of comedy"
Quite.
Consider then that a few years later Northern accents would be the rage of America after the British Invasion

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 28 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The music are all very old, nothing a teenager would recognise as 'Corrie Music', even the main tune is old

It came scuffed and looked like a second hand product. Will not buy from this seller again.

Will rate 'no star' but Amazon will not allow me to...

1.0 out of 5 stars Why Corrie? 3 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
Apart from the theme tune and pictures on the covers, the music CDs have nothing to do with Corrie at all - just a lot of old songs. The DVD 'extras' are old Corrie episodes but this is not what I was expecting from this cd (which was a present) and my reaction was confusion, followed by disappointment.
If it's 60s songs you want, there are a lot of other CDs that are better and probably cheaper.

As previous reviewers have pointed out. This is a collection of 60s hits that has absolutely nothing to do with Coronation Street as such, any series that was about in the 60s could of had their name attached to the release as easily as corrie, It's just a collection of 60s hits that otherwise may not have sold as many copies if the Street name was not attached. However, there is an up side to this purchase. A third disc, A DVD containing 2 classic Christmas Coronation Street episodes from 1969 and 1975. These are not available on the other C.S. Box sets so they are only available to view in this package, making it a must for Corrie fans wanting to add these episodes to their collection.
