It’s interesting how the narrator and even the titles half way through only mention CD & Cassette, but at the end the titles also mention a LP version being available.Another advertisement from the great UK, Their Greatest Hits:
I think it’s probably an Aussie ad. Definitely an Aussie voice-over, (although he tries to posh up his accent a bit, the way he says “Out now”, a bit unnaturally )the ad uses the Australian/Far Eastern cover rather than the cover with the Annie Liebovitz photo that was used for the UK release.
Also, despite the fact that the large number of compilations released in the UK were generally actively promoted by A&M/Universal with TV ads, this compilation was given something of a 'soft' release in the UK and wasn't promoted (it basically started appearing in the back catalogue sections of record stores some time after its release in the US), so I'm not sure this advert ever actually aired on UK TV.
Yes! I wonder why so many titles. Btw, “The Singles 1969 -1973” also had a poster-flat in Australia - from memory, a bit bigger than 12” x 12”. ‘Very Best Of” and “Their Greatest Hits” also both had poster campaigns, both 36” x 36”. I think ‘Lovelines’ even had a poster campaign.
I don't know very much about TV down under, but wouldn't this logo at the very end (TVNZ) indicate New Zealand?I think it’s probably an Aussie ad. Definitely an Aussie voice-over, (although he tries to posh up his accent a bit, the way he says “Out now”, a bit unnaturally )
