June 26th

"Windy" by The Association takes over the top spot this week in its sixth week on the chart.  But man, what a Top Ten this is … proof again of just how INCREDIBLY strong a year 1967 was musically.  

Check this out:   

#1 = Windy by The Association  

#2 = She'd Rather Be With Me by The Turtles

#3 = Groovin' by The Young Rascals

#4 = Little Bit O'Soul by The Music Explosion

#5 = Respect by Aretha Franklin

#6 = San Francisco by Scott McKenzie

#7 = Can't Take My Eyes Off You by Frankie Valli

#8 = Let's Live For Today by The Grass Roots

#9 = Come On Down To My Boat by Every Mother's Son

#10 = Don't Sleep In The Subway by Petula Clark 

I'd put that Top Ten against virtually any other in pop music history … they just don't come any finer than this!!!  

The #1 Album in the country this week is "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by The Beatles.  By all counts, it's a masterpiece … and it will top the chart for fifteen consecutive weeks, becoming the album of the summer, the decade and (some might argue) of all time.
