September 28th

A brand new '60's classic debuts at #57 this week as Aretha Franklin hits the chart with her latest, the Carole King tune "A Natural Woman".  Also new on the chart this week are a remake of "Please Love Me Forever" by Bobby Vinton (#66), another remake of "Love Is Strange" by Peaches and Herb (#77), "Holiday" by The Bee Gees (#80), the very different sounding "Incense And Peppermints" by The Strawberry Alarm Clock, a foray into psychedelic pop (at #81), "Rock And Roll Woman" by Buffalo Springfield, another '60's classic, "Everlasting Love" by Robert Knight (#89) and a future #1 Record by a family act called The Cowsills, with something called "The Rain, The Park and Other Things" (#90).  

Frank Zappa's daughter Moon Unit is born.  In 1982 she will record a duet with her father called "Valley Girl" which will inspire the movie of the same name to be made, starring Nicholas Cage.
