Muito antes do MP3, quando as opções pra se ouvir música além do rádio eram bem mais restritas e as gravadoras bem mais poderosas, as compilações com sucessos do momento em LP/K-7 faziam todo o sentido.

Talvez o auge dessas coletâneas já tivesse passado quando a EMI-Odeon lançou o primeiro “Mega Hits”, em 1987, mas o cast que a EMI ostentava garantiu seis álbuns de muito sucesso.
