February 19th

The Rolling Stones knock The Buckinghams out of the #1 spot after only one week as "Ruby Tuesday" climbs to the top of this week's Super Chart.  "Love Is Here And Now You're Gone" seems poised to overtake it as it continues its climb in The Top Ten, this week moving from #5 to #3.  "Gimme Some Lovin'" by The Spencer Davis Group and "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye" by The Casinos finally reach The Top Ten this week as well, climbing from #12 to #7 and #13 to #9 respectively.  

Johnny Rivers continues his climb up the chart, moving from #30 to #15 with his version of "Baby, I Need Your Lovin'", as does Ed Ames with his new hit "My Cup Runneth Over", up from #28 to #20.  

The Buffalo Springfield crack The Top 40 for the first time with their '60's anthem "For What It's Worth", climbing from #45 to #28 this week.  "Darling Be Home Soon" by The Lovin' Spoonful make an impressive move from #56 to #32, as does Herman's Hermits, leaping from #51 to #33 with "There's A Kind of Hush".  

"More Of The Monkees" tops the album chart for the third week in a row.  

The Four Tops perform a hits medley on The Ed Sullivan Show including "Reach Out, I'll Be There", "I Can't Help Myself", "Bernadette" and "Climb Every Mountain".  Pat Boone is also in the line-up tonight, performing a soliloquy from "Carousel".
