Anybody besides me old enough to remember K-Tel Records?
My dad got me this one when I was 7. It was literally the moment I began to think about music.

Imagine Donny Osmond and Clapton being back to back on the same album. Mind boggling.

Do you remember when they sold albums of songs not done by the original artist?

Yes. My dad said they named the cover group "The Original Artists" to get away with the scam. Likely an urban legend, but funny.

Oh hell yes.... and I'll meet anyone, anytime at Sonic if they say there's better music than the 70's.

Sometimes they sold albums without the original artists, and sometimes they sold albums with songs by the original artists (but not the original recordings).

Yes, same era as this one. I don’t ever remember buying one, though.
