'Ready To Roll’, the most iconic New Zealand music show ever, presents 40 massive hits of the 70s and 80s. This 2 disc set features an incredible 27 NZ number one singles, along with countless top 5 charting classic hits. For those of us who grew up with the show every track on this compilation conjures up memories of the incredible videos created for these songs.

For those of us who didn’t grow up with it – RTR was launched at the beginning of the pop video boom of the mid-1970s and was broadcast into New Zealand homes at 6pm TV2 every Saturday for 2 decades. It had an incredibly loyal and very large audience that watched it religiously. During those years numerous LP/Tape compilations were released under the brand name.
