World's Greatest Tracks - a brief history

The origin of the World's Greatest Tracks is now legendary.  In their on-going search for the best available music, Andy Blockley and Dave Wallace decided that a particularly good song should be designated as "one of the world's greatest tracks". Over the course of many listening sessions, definitive tracks were identified.

The earliest known session to compile a WGT list was to select the best of the 80's decade. This took place in West Kirby on New Year's Eve 1989 and resulted in the following running-order, suitable for issue on the then popular C90 cassette format.
