||Various Artists: 20 Solid Gold Hits Vol 1
Volume 1 in the hugely successful 20 Solid Gold Hits series.
The 20 Solid Gold Hits Lps were exclusive to the New Zealand market ,released by Music for Leisure.
They have never been available on cd - until now ! - with the first three volumes released December 2022 by the hardworking team at Frenzy Music.
Many New Zealanders grew up with these lps as a soundtrack to their lives, and although the majority of the tracks are not by New Zealand artists these compilations can indeed be considered a part of New Zealand's musical heritage.
20 Solid Gold Hits Vol 1 was originally released in 1971.
