Update

With all the recent changes (they are ongoing) I’ve been informed that the front page is not currently visible. This is something I’ll come back to and rebuild soon. In the meantime please use the links at the bottom of the pages. I update these as each group of pages is updated.

Currently the following are complete:

K-tel early
K-tel All NA, TA, WA

CBS
EMI
Festival
(Calendar)
Kinney

Astor
Fable
Chart
Concept
Go!!
Havoc
Now
Select
W&G

Our next task is to review the links, images, and tags – some artists have multiple spellings. We have also discovered that some of the Next and Previous navigation is skipping pages. The pages are there, but there is an issue in the database. As I’m back to working on other projects these fixes may take time. I’ll then be working on improving the theme so it works better on mobile devices…

There are around 700 pages to update – so please be patient. Refresh pages that you have previously visited.

Enjoy. 11 April 2016

K-tel

This record has something of a strange background. It was originally recorded at Armstrong Audio/Video Studios in Melbourne by Roger Savage from Fable and released under FBAB-5315. Recording is dated 1975. It was then licensed by K-tel and reissued with a slightly modified cover less than 12 months later.

Although there were many compilations before, K-tel – initially trading as Majestic in Australia – began the trend to heavy marketing of compilations and samplers in the late 1960s…
