HMV Playlist (2003-2007)

We like a good compilation CD and HMV Ireland were responsible for a very nice series beginning back in 2003. The CDs were given free if a featured CD was purchased instore. The first one in particular was very popular round these parts and introduced a number of up and coming Irish acts. Thank you to Brendan of the excellent Irish Music Central who documented these compilations. Thanks also to IrishMusicDB.com for details of Playlist 7 and 10.
