Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was quite a brave little purchase for me, all things considered. The opportunity to buy a compilation album of any description is usually an occasion of great personal joy and celebration (well, unless you're my bank manager, at any rate), but I don't often stray too far from the comforting embrace of 'Music I Remember From My Childhood'.

The only problem with that though, is that most people who know me think I am too scared to face the modern world; they think that I live in a little 80s bubble, thumbing through my old copies of 'Smash Hits' while pouring bags of Salt & Vinegar Discos and cans of Lilt down my neck like they're going out of fashion. Which, to be fair (apart from the fact that I can't stand Lilt), is a pretty accurate representation of the truth. This particular box-set however, looked like it would have the capacity to indulge my more old-fashioned musical tastes while also giving me a little flavour of the more modern musical hits that have invariably managed to completely pass me by.

I could barely type in my credit card details fast enough.

The fact that this very generous 6 disc set contains 2 whole CDs devoted to my beloved 80s did postpone my leap into the musical unknown quite considerably. And I did at least recognise every single song on those discs, plus all of those given the job here of representing the 60s and the 70s and really doing those decades proud. That 70s disc seemed to get a bit confused when I played it though my computer, because it was the track list to CD3 that came up alongside it. But, if you ask me, that just goes to show what a popular decade the 80s was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remember when?? 9 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD
125 tracks on 6 CDs and at wel under a tenner makes this a really good bargain but there is more to this collection than the numbers.
Each and every one a top 20 hit and a fair sprinklings of number2s, 3s, and 4s.

Someone has actually made a really good selection of the tracks and more importantly put them on the CDs where they will really fit in with the rest of the tracks.

Take CD4 all of the tracks selected are from the smae era and are really memorable they really 'fit' well. This is very much like the 'friends reunited' 'old school disco' collections where a set of songs popular in one era are released.
In essense you are getting 6 such eras on one collection
This attention to detail is refreshing when you compare the track placement with other collections.

True the Cover is naff and, from what I hear from other reviewers, the case is not strong and is soon broken so corners have been cut to get the price right down but this is more than made up for the really decent selection of tracks.

There really isn't a bad track on here and you can't really say fairer than that?

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Of The Pops - 125 Original Hits 30 Dec 2010
By Hutchy
Format:Audio CD
Starting on January 1st 1964, Top Of The Pops (TOTP), was THE pop programme to be on. Bands used to listen to the charts on Tuesday, and if they had gone up in the charts (or sometimes stayed the same), managers didn't stray too far away from their phones in case they got the call to appear on Thursday's show (which was recorded on Wednesdays).

Read interviews with pop stars and many of them will say that it was their ambition to appear on the show, and once you had appeared - you had `made it'.

TOTP could break you as well as make you, a poor performance could see sales drop off, but a good one could see you up at the top.

Across these 6 CD's there are 125 examples of what we used to listen to. The pick of the biggest hits that were performed on the show' from The Hollies (who featured on the first show in 1964) to Lily Allen in 2006.

Over forty years of musical history with each decade having a disc of it's own.

All we needed to make this collection complete was Pan's People!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD, varied tracks. 5 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Excellent collection of tracks from 6 decades of Top Of The Pops. Some classics, some average, but all worth a listen. Definitely a good 'time capsule' of hits, and a good CD for listening to in the car.
