The Hit Factory: The Ultimate Collection

New Stock Aitken Waterman set • 3CDs • bonus disc of remixes

The Hit Factory: Ultimate Collection is a new three-CD various artists collection of songs produced by Stock Aitken Waterman.

This is a 50-track collection with the usual suspects all present and correct including Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley, Bananarama, Mel & Kim, Jason Donovan and Dead Or Alive.

It was just over five years ago we had the previous compilation Pete Waterman Presents The Hit Factory. There was a single disc edition of that set, but the one to get was the triple disc edition with a bonus disc of remixes (which went out-of-print, quite quickly, I think).

This new ‘Hit Factory’ release echoes that format with two discs of hits and a bonus CD of remixes. Of the 39 tracks on the first two discs of the 2012 set, 25 are repeated here, so you get 15 new selections (there are 40 tracks on the first two CDs of the new set). The bonus disc of 12-inch remixes included on The Hit Factory: Ultimate Collection repeats none of the previous ones. Two tracks are the same (Dead or Alive and Mandy Smith) but you get different remixes.

This new set certainly has a much groovier cover than the rather abysmal art of the previous release and it’s notable that there is no mention of either Pete Waterman or Stock Aitken Waterman on the front cover!

The Hit Factory: Ultimate Collection will be released on 3 November 2017
