 Re Issue
In 2006 RD reissued the series as a 12 volume set. The running order was reworked, which made the set more 'generic' and less themed by disc. Several tracks were dropped, and others added * utilising tracks that I was unable to use originally due to there usage on other RD releases (a silly rule that existed at the time). Ironically the series was renamed 'Remembering The Sixties' but the dropped tracks were those that were more 'memories' than actual hits.

Dropped tracks;-

Betty Everett - It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)
Geno Washington And the Ram Jam Band - Bring It To Me Baby
Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger And the Trinity - This Wheel's On Fire
Manfred Mann - Mighty Quinn
P.P. Arnold - Angel Of The Morning
Stevie Wonder - For Once In My Life
Sue Nichols - Where Will You Be
The Barry Gray Orchestra - 'Joe 90' Theme
The Paper Dolls - Something Here In My Heart
The Showstoppers - Ain't Nothin' But A Houseparty

SOUNDS OF THE SEVENTIES: End Of The Decade

3CD Set
Released January 2004
Cat No.: RDCD4371-3
RD Code: SVED-012
Compilation by J K Hall - Booklet Notes by S Barnard- Mastered by P Marchant

'End of the Decade' was the last in this series, and my last collection for RD. Although I compiled it, the printing and final checks were done by someone else. This is why the colours on the sleeve are reversed (it should have had an orange background with yellow text, so that the colours match when placed on a shelf in order!). Also, it was only the last two in the series to include 'Warner' licensed tracks after a deal I had just completed for the first time for RD after many years of failed negotiations.
