Top debuts this week include a couple more personal favorites … "Gimme Little Sign" by Brenton Wood debuts at #76 and right behind it Paul Revere and the Raiders are new on the chart with "I Had A Dream" (#77). Chicago's Spanky and Our Gang are back with "Making Every Minute Count" (new on the chart at #72) and Dean Martin's got an appropriately titled novelty track out this week, too … "Little Ole Wine Drinker, Me" premiers at #82. Meanwhile, despite already topping both the WLS and the WCFL chart here in Chicago, The Cryan' Shames are still just creeping up the national chart this week, moving from #90 to #83 with "It Could Be We're In Love".
Slugger Tony Conigliaro of The Boston Red Sox is hit on the left cheekbone, just below the eye socket by a pitch thrown by California Angels Pitcher Jack Hamilton. He will miss the rest of the 1967 season as well as all of the 1968 season.
