Discovered: another Brazilian Top of the Pops

Earlier this year we reported on a Top of the Pops compilation album from Brazil, which was called "volume 2" (see here).

Well, we've now found some images of volume 1 - and here it is:




This "volume 1" uses the cover photo from UK volume 27, but it's quite a bit later. Most of the 12 tracks are from the UK volume 32, which dates the album after August 1973.

Although we don't have a definite sequence of songs, we can see just about enough of the side 2 label to tell that they match tracks 7 to 12 on the sleeve - in other words, the playing sequence appears to correspond to the listing on the front. 

The album was issued by RCA-Camden, and tracks are as follows:
  • Get Down -- from vol. 30
  • Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting -- from vol. 32
  • Fool -- from vol. 32
  • Touch Me In The Morning -- from vol. 32
  • Me And Mrs Jones -- from vol. 29
  • Alright, Alright, Alright -- from vol. 32
  • Yesterday Once More -- from vol. 32
  • Tie A Yellow Ribbon -- from vol. 30
  • And I Love You So -- from vol. 31
  • Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose -- from vol. 32
  • Hell Raiser -- from vol. 31
  • Life On Mars -- from vol. 32

Here are volimes 1 and 2 side-by-side. I wonder if a volume 3 was ever released?...
