Next Saturday Night (June 24th) I’ll be back on Phil Nee’s WRCO “Those Were The Days” radio program … this time counting down The Top 50 Chicagoland Biggest Hits from The Summer Of Love.
A few years back we asked our FH buddy (and frequent contributor) Jack Levin to compile a list of the 50 Biggest Records for the months of June, July and August, 1967, by computing each record’s ranking on both the WLS and WCFL Charts. (Chart Guru Randy Price did the same thing, utilizing his Super Charts, to determine the 50 Biggest National Summer Of Love Hits.)
Both lists are permanently posted on The Forgotten Hits Website … http://forgottenhits.com/the_summer_of_love_countdown_the_biggest_hits_of_summer_1967
I was contacted by a friend who is sending me a new 3-CD set called The Summer of Love .
Parliament - Funkadelic members. I'm not sure I've heard “Testify" on the radio in fifty years!
Actually, somebody did … and we addressed this a few weeks ago … but for those who need to hear it again, here is the superior single mix. (kk)
We also replaced our version of “No Fair At All” (a Warner Brothers re-recording apparently) with the original Valiant single mix … so we might as well rerun that one now, too! (kk)
