Chart Runners Part 2

Just in case readers were thinking this was now only a place for ‘serious’ vinyl appreciation, here’s some fresh Ronco action from that most forgettable of years, 1983.

Worth the price of admission for the post-‘Tron’ sleeve design, but also the typical blend of overly-familiar pop picks (‘Down Under’, ‘Sexual Healing’), nice-to-be-reminded-of chart hits (‘Tunnel Of Love’, ‘Heartache Avenue’, ‘European Female’) slightly left-of-centre noble failures (John Foxx’s ‘Endlessly’, Shriekback’s ‘Lined Up’), briefly popular discotheque hits that failed to cross-over to the charts (Mahagonay’s “Ride The Rhythm”), complete euro-twaddle (“A Cha Cha At The Opera”) and let’s just forget White & Torch’s disastrous “Let’s Forget”.

Okay now I’m on a mission to find ‘Part 1’….
