Tony Hatch - Hits Symphonic

Tony Hatch wrote TV themes, (including perennial Aussie soap Neighbours, and long-running UK soap Crossroads), and hit songs for a number of artists in the 60's and 70's. He wrote nearly all of Petula Clark's hits including 'Downtown' and 'Don't Sleep In The Subway'.

During the 1970s Hatch was also a regular panellist on the talent show New Faces where his blunt style of assessing the contestants has proved to be a forerunner of approaches to come in later, similar series.

This record has a bit of wow and flutter to it, as the hole in the record was cut slightly off-centre. Shadrac Blintz informs me that it is possible to shave away part of the hole to re-align the record, but that sounds like a recipe for disaster to me, so I have uploaded it as is.
