Australian TV's Greatest Hits

I just couldn't be bothered typing out the 59 tracks on this post so I've added the back cover to the post so anyone needing to know what is on this album can have a look, any way here's an album with 59 themes of the best and worst of Australia TV, might bring back some memories it did for me and some I've never heard of must have aired in Melbourne or the ABC . An educated guess would put this as released in 1988 there was a UK release of the album in that year and as one of the tracks is the theme to Neighbours which started in 1985 the date would seem to right.

Hold it stop the presses "thesoundandthefury" has pointed out to me that the date is on the back cover need to get my magnifier out LOL.
