Only a Top 30 was published for this week at the time, so it's odd that this site has artificially stretched it out to a Top 50 by taking all the records that were in last week's repeated chart and not already in this Top 30 and just listing them in the order they were last week. It's even odder that last week's #21 by The Strawbs has been missed out when doing so, causing it to drop right out of the 50 this week before seeming to climb back to #38 next week.

Top 40 actually.


Nigel Coleman


It's Top 40 now, but back in 1973 was Top 30.
