‘Chip Shop’ has appeared on ‘Greatest Hits of 1981’ (CDGH), and also strangely on a 7" single (PSP002) issued by Littlewoods Stores in 1982 called either ‘Chart Rockets’ (on the sleeve) or ‘Chart Rockers’ (on the label). The A-side featured ‘Yellow Pearl’ by Phil Lynott and ‘Do the Hucklebuck’ by Coast to Coast. The B-side featured ‘Chip Shop’ along with ‘Young Parisians’ by Adam and the Ants. Another sighting on ‘Monster Tracks’ released by Polystar (HOPTV 2) in 1981 beside Soft Cell, Genesis, Roxy Music, Status Quo, Adam and the Ants, Dire Straits, Rainbow, Graham Bonnet, Visage and Dexys Midnight Runners. ‘Girls’ was a 3 CD box set issued on Spectrum in 2002 with Sam Brown, Dina Carroll, Joan Osborne and Charlene.).
Also ‘Drivin’ with Johnnie Walker vol. 1’ (Corrs, Chris Rea, Fleetwood Mac, Otis Redding), an Australian release called ‘Atomic 80s’ (Universal 585967-2) and Volume 4 of ‘Hard to Find Hits’ alongside the Only Ones, Rachel Sweet, Bram Tchaikovsky, the Records, the Plimsouls etc. Decent enough collection actually. And ‘Girls’, a Japanese release featuring Gloria Gaynor, Mica Paris, Yvonne Elliman, Kim Wilde, Marianne Faithfull, Elkie Brooks (UICY-90140), also ‘Young at Heart – Classic Hits of the Early 80s’ (5 discs.), ‘And I Write the Songs’ ("34 singer/songwriter classics"…) – a slightly more eclectic set (Billy Ray Cyrus, Paul Brady, Nick Drake, Murray Head). A 1981 vinyl release called ‘Monster Tracks’ pits Kirsty against the Polecats, Genesis, Rainbow and Status Quo – credit due to Polystar for compiling Kirsty back in ’81.
An unusual compilation, ‘Copyright Gap’, released in 2007 and featuring ‘Chip Shop’ was designed to highlight the 50 year copyright term applied to popular music (triggered by Lonnie Donegan’s ‘Cumberland Gap’ coming out of copyright).
There is also a DVD compilation called ‘80s DVD Jukebox’ which is a compilation of performances from German TV shows (Musik Laden is definitely one of the programs featured, though there may well be others involved). Kirsty is featured miming ‘Chip Shop’.
