The 1980s were probably the last real decade for the pop single. It was certainly the last one in which every record that made the Hot 100 was an actual vinyl single. Radio was still breaking big hits and new artists, rather than TV talent shows and the still-nascent Internet. And people still rushed to their local record store to buy what their local station was playing, rather than streaming or downloading it. Having successfully anthologised the American charts of the 50s, 60s and 70s over a long period of time, Ace is delighted this month to premiere Rockin In The USA, their first anthology of 1980s US Hot 100 hits. 80s radio made hits for a lot of new names. As had been the case in earlier eras, many of them are still around 30 to almost 40 years later, while the careers of others virtually began and ended with their lone hit.
