Value for money: Compilation albums

Written by

In an industry now dominated by Single releases, and albums which are having less of an impact, I wonder if compilation albums released by the labels, combining the best 15-20 single releases of the year hurt singles and album sales?

After the ever popular VIP Records Bhangra Smash Hits (Dec 2011), we are only just seeing Bhangra Smash Hits Volume 2 (Mar 2013), which is comprised of 20 tracks which have been previously released by the VIP Records camp.

Typically singles release at £0.79 per song on iTunes, so £4.99 for Bhangra Smash Hits Volume 2, is a bargain if you do not have all of the songs on this compilation.

Maybe you are a new listener to the bhangra genre and are looking to build your collection. Once again Bhangra Smash Hits, and Bhangra Smash Hits Volume 2 would be £10 well spent, giving you 45 tracks from the VIP Records camp.

Next maybe you are looking for some older bhangra songs to build your collection, or even enhance your collection. For this we can roll back to 2009/2010 when Moviebox released “The Biggest UK Bhangra Hits” series. These 3 compilations feature some of the biggest artists, and once again represent excellent value for money if you do not have many of these songs already.

There was a 4th album in this series “The Biggest UK Bhangra Hits Vol. 4“, but it does not appear that Moviebox have made it available in the digital music marketplace (iTunes and similar), and only available in CD form. The 3 CD pack released in Sept 2012 for £9.99 and brings a host of songs released in 2011/2012, which if you had been following the series, would bring you up to date from 2008-2012.

Back to my earlier question…. Does selling a compilation album cannibalise the singles market? Personally I think these types of compilation albums help to introduce the genre to potential new listeners, younger generations etc. The songs are already produced and released, and with the digital iTunes era there is very little required to release a compilation. Moviebox have released a big compilation album each year since 2009 as part of The Biggest UK Bhangra Hits series, and I hope they are selling well.
