Celebrate the cream of the Charly catalogue

Available to order now, Charly 40 Years - Classic Hits is a commemorative CD sampler comprising some of the best and biggest artists from Charly’s hit-laden catalogue.  

Charly was the first to recognise the value of music’s past; in the mid-Seventies, our pioneering work on the legendary Memphis label Sun Records, made influential titles by Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and others readily available, many for the first time. Charly also proved that archive music could have contemporary currency - their 1982 cassette-only compilation, Charly Pocket Jukebox, was an instant sell-out and introduced music fans to the likes of Nina Simone, whose ‘My Baby Just Cares For Me’ became a UK Top 5 in 1987.

Proving that Charly has lost none of its passion for delivering superb music in the decades since, this hit-laden 15-track sampler CD - which features Soul greats Bobby Womack and Curtis Mayfield, distaff chart-toppers Nina Simone and The Shangri-Las, rock'n'rollers Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, George Clinton's Funkadelic and 60s Psych legends The 13th Floor Elevators - offers a fantastic overview of the richly diverse music which has come to be Charly’s defining feature.
