THE pop icon from Newton-le-Willows is back with a series of his greatest hits for fans wanting a taste of the 1980’s.

Rick Astley’s chart topper, Never Gonna Give You Up, opens the album, which consists of the memorable and the not-so-memorable releases of the cheesy solo artist.

The 16 tracks are certainly for the light-hearted who were fans of the singer.

Those more judging may not appreciate the deep lyrics of Hold Me In Your Arms and It Would Take A Strong, Strong Man.

His Greatest Hits CD is unlikely to break records, but is sure to be a must for all Stock, Aitken and Waterman fans.
