Hits from decade of change

Stockport Times West - - SOUNDS WRITE -

AT this time of year in par­tic­u­lar, in the run-up to Christ­mas, com­pi­la­tion al­bums of ev­ery kind genre get re­leased by what seems like the buck­et­load so pick­ing out the stand­out ones wor­thy of your hard-earned cash is not al­ways an easy task.

Sony Mu­sic’s lat­est var­i­ous artists com­pi­la­tion though, en­ti­tled Si­lence Is Golden, is def­i­nitely an al­bum that doesn’t dis­ap­point.

In cel­e­bra­tion of the orig­i­nal chilled out gen­er­a­tion, Si­lence Is Golden is a bumper 3CD set of 60 hits from the artists who wit­nessed a decade of mo­men­tous so­cial change, and clev­erly cap­tured the spirit of free love through their mu­sic.

Named after the hit sin­gle made fa­mous by English beat group The Tremeloes, Si­lence Is Golden not only went on to be­come their big­gest sell­ing record, but also re­mains as a true in­spi­ra­tion for the band, a feel­ing that was trans­lated through­out the mu­si­cal decade.

The Tremeloes’ drum­mer Dave Mun­den said: “The lyrics in the songs were all au­di­ble and meant some­thing spe­cial in all our lives.

“I be­lieve that the tracks on this al­bum are a true re­flec­tion of the joy and hap­pi­ness that was around in both mu­sic and in world feel­ings at that time.”

Si­lence Is Golden in­cludes many time­less clas­sics across its three CDs such as The Beach Boys’ God Only Knows, Fleet­wood Mac Al­ba­tross, Marvin Gaye’s What’s Goin On, Si­mon and Gar­funkel Sound Of Si­lence, Andy Wil­liams’ Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Alone Again Or by Love, Harry Nils­son’s Every­body’s Talkin and Flow­ers In The Rain by The Move to name just a hand­ful.
