This is some record! Every song’s a number one! Yes, each of the 14 great selections on this L.P. has been Number 1 in the 1975 Pop Music Charts! Each is an absolute WOW!

Take a look at the titles – ’Oh Boy’, ’Space Oddity’, ’Bye Bye Baby’, ’If’, etc. – and listen to the fine quality of the production and recording! This has got to be the greatest L.P. ever – and the greatest value! 

There’s an inspiring FREE gift inside the record sleeve, too… a Giant poperific pin-up Calendar Poster for 1976. Take a look. 

Incidentally, do you know about TOP OF THE POPS? Every 6 to 8 weeks a new volume is released, packed with 12 super-charged pop hits and producing the World’s largest selling, regularly released L.P’s. 

The Pickwick people have certainly done it again by selecting these smash hits, and putting them all together to make “THE BEST OF TOP OF THE POPS 1975”. It’s the perfect L.P. for Party-time or anytime… music that makes you feel you’re living… and it’s a great L.P. for giving! So turn on your player, tune in, and happy listening.

TOP OF THE POPS is here – yes, Volume 44 of Pickwicks’ top selling smash hit series. Once again you can enjoy listening to 12 of the latest, exciting new tracks, hand-picked from the charts, and all on one fabulous L.P.

As quoted in one pop magazine — “Some of these cover versions are better than the originals.” And that’s what it’s all about — all our artists and musicians are tops, all our songs are pops, all our recordings are great … and, like the proverbial “Hot cakes” all our volumes sell almost before you can say ‘TOP OF THE POPS!’

Top of the Pops Vol. 43

Sleeve Notes:

We’ve popped up again – and we’ll soon reach our half-century – for this fabulous pop album is No. 43 in the longest running series of its kind in the history of recorded music. 

How has this been achieved? We’ll tell you. HALLMARK RECORDS, a part of world famous PICKWIK INTERNATIONAL, was established to give record folk everywhere the greatest value ever. Mediocrity we don’t want. Our “Top of the Pops” sleeve design has to be the best of its type; our pressing standard second to none; our tracks the best in the current charts; our Session Musicians the finest available (and they’re really good!); our hi-fi sound unsurpassed. Only then will we issue another Top of the Pops. That’s why we’ve reached this forty-third issue; that’s why we’ll reach our half-century. 

Sure, we get some complaints. We can’t please everybody (although we try); and by listening to criticism we’re trying to improve all the time. But we’re very proud of our letters of praise from all over the world – sackfuls of them! Pop people, we’re on your side, all the way.

Take a “look-see”, a “Butcher’s”, a “gander”, a “dekko”, or even a dignified glance at the 12 super, high-in-the-charts tracks we’ve picked for you, and we know you’ll get these albums moving from the shops – but fast! This album you’ll love. The dealer will love you. And we’ll love you most of all!
