Retro Vinyl Find: I Like It - 20 Golden Hits of the 60's (Music For Pleasure, 1974)
Its interesting that the maker of the Hot Hits albums Bill Wellings, a specialist in copycat cover albums was also commissioned by Music for Pleasure to produce themed albums featuring hits on a theme. In this case, it was 20 Golden Hits of the 60's (MFP 50110) released in 1974.
Hits popularised by The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Gerry and The Pacemakers (whose 1963 Number One I Like It lent its title to the album), The Searchers and Manfred Mann were all given the cover version treatment, packaged with a smart looking album cover featuring a leggy blond and a mod on a Vesper motorcycle.
This copy of which I recently located for 20p has a stamp on the reverse of the sleeve stating the contents were manufactured in the USA.
