      And here we go with another slice of prime cheese. This is of the aural variety, better for you too, in small doses. Three discs of vintage memories, I have highlighted some choice picks from these 66 songs. Yes, 66.

      I adore Matthew Wilder's 'Break My Stride' which has a reggae tinged beat and soulful vocals. The song has a really hooky chorus and will make you feel empowered and want to take on the world as the melody lifts at every turn.

      The camp fun of Sheena's '9 To 5' will have you humming along. Sheena donned a lovely grey all in one jumpsuit for the video for this track, she looked quite stunning. If you like it camp, continue with the Tams who do 'Be Young Be Foolish But Be Happy.' A wise sentiment and a kitsch track, it will put a smile on anyone's face.

      The Steve Miller Band turn in the creepy 'Abracadabra',' I love the flanging effect on the vocal here, which makes it sound magical and other wordly. While you're lingering round this area of the disc, dip into 'Maniac' which has a ferocious chorus and is the kind of song men will want to drive fast to in their BMWs.

      Moving onto the second disc, some mellow moods are created with The Shadows and Eddie Rabbitt. Then as the disc progresses you will be treated to the glorious stomping rhythm of 'Centrefold' by the J Geils Band. Also check out the mean and sultry 'Airport' which succeeds in conjuring up images of dashing to the airport, trying to make that last plane. It has a sexy and sensual melody which makes me feel quite lightheaded.

      Disc three heralds some treats in the form of 'Matchstick Men' which is severely dated but oh so very charming. Dollar turn in something racey with the pop fuelled 'Who Were You With In The Moonlight.' A good question for them to pose, seeing as you can't see people very well in the dark.

      Peters and Lee pop up with 'Welcome Home' which is downright sickly and ghastly, one to skip. Luckily, Jim Capaldi and Tom Jones are at hand to raise the game with two slick ballads, restoring some dignity to the disc.

      You do get loads of tracks on here, but there is quite a lot of trash and only a handful of worthy offerings. Approach with caution.
