Million Dollar Memories

Play

9LP  4 Cassette Set
Released 1977 (1972 Original)
Cat No.: RDS8061-9  (RDC90391-4)
RD Code: MDM 004
In 1977 came with Bonus LP 'Tony Bennett Sings' (RDS8070)

Picked up from the USA, this had a weird tracklisting that was programmed across the first sides of each LP and then reversing from the last LP to the first on side two. As they were all CBS recordings, I'm guessing that the compilation was made by the CBS people who didn't understand the Digest brief?
