People have been hoping for a K-tel Komeback for years, many not knowing that the company still exists and owns a substantial library of re-recorded songs by the original vocalists. Longtime supporter and friend of the Kollection, Mark first jokingly mentioned "a special 180 gram MFSL red vinyl re-release of "Block Buster" on Record Store Day (4/18/15). MSRP: $49.99" back in March 2015. HERC seconded the motion in all sincerity with a comment of his own:
"From your your lips to the ears of the record labels. Over-priced audiophile pressings of the original K-Tel records would be unfreakingbelievably awesome!"
Brandon Hixson picked up the ball and ran a different way with it the following month, creating three K-Tel albums that "should have been" and sharing them on his YouTube channel. I wrote about them in a post which has since become the Number One Most Spammed and Botted Post here at the K-Tel Kollection. Since then, he has posted two additional quasi-K-Tel albums:
Most recently, in a post on his The Vinyl Voyage site about Columbia House happenings and developments, Bruce David Janu took it a step further and posited this question:
"If you could put together the best of K-Tel in one limited edition collector's vinyl, what would you include?"
Time Machine is his answer to his own question. A "best of" featuring his fourteen favorite songs from 1970-1979 and featured on previous K-tel albums. BDJ even created beautiful artwork for his dream album - dig those classic K-Tel logos blended into the background on the cover. As a special courtesy to BDJ, we're featuring his album today, along with a custom Spotify playlist and running it through the K-Tel Scale™.
