The following is a compilation of John Miles' favourite tracks, which was broadcast on the BBC Radio 1 programme Star Special in 1979. At that time, Radio 1 was broadcasting on the Medium Wave in mono only, so the audio quality leaves something to be desired. Each track name is linked to an audio file which can be heard using the Real Audio format. I would like to thank Richard Townsend for the original recording, and the subsequent remastering, which has improved the audio quality from the original files.
