My Retro August 1968 Charts

 

3rd August 1968

It’s a first chart-topper for Harry Nilsson and his heartbreaking future-Midnight Cowboy soundtrack gem, just gorgeous through and through with or without the movie. Highest new  entry is the definitive version of Bacharach/David’s I Say A Little Prayer, and a track off the oft-mentioned 16 Big Hits which dad bought in Singapore a year later and which was the soundtrack to late 1969 for me. The vastly under-rated Johnny Nash enters at 12 with the blissful Hold Me Tight, soft reggae is formally introduced to the pop charts right here, or Lover’s Rock as it became better-known, and Johnny was also the man who introduced Bob Marley songs to the charts in 1972. He may have been American but he knew a reggae great when he saw one, and could pen a fab tune himself.

Ray Stevens takes his non-comic social-commentary into the 20, still great, and obscure sadly, as The Hump gets his well-known album track into my Quando charts, Fats Domino debuts with a song written in his style by Macca, so that’s only fair, The Moody’s are back with a minor UK hit – wrong choice of single for me though.

10th August 1968

Aretha franklin, probably the greatest female vocalist in soul and pop music of all-time, died today, so it’s only right and fitting that she should top my 50-years-ago revisit and discovery of music available that week, with her finest recording, a complete reinvention of Dionne Warwick’s version of I Say A Little Prayer. Bacharach & David write heavenly songs, this is one of several to top my charts in 1967/8, and their go-to-girl is no slouch in the vocal department herself – and she duly also enters with 2 more tracks, one I don’t know, and one I adored and easily topped my “wouldabeen” chart in 1964 for Sandie Shaw, Always Something There To Remind Me. Sometimes Dionne cuts the definitive version (Walk On By) and sometimes she don’t. Aretha walks all over her.

Highest new entry at 7 is another absolute fave of mine in 1968, as will become obvious in 3 weeks when I start posting my original retro charts, as it spent weeks at number 2 in them: Jesamine, The Casuals hugely melodic goodie. Which reminds me – why did nobody remind me to chart Abergavenny earlier in the year for Marty Wilde! Belated new entry next week. In at 12, one I didnt get to hear until 1975 on the Sunday 5-years-ago charts rundown, being as it was a belated UK huge hit for Don Fardon: The fabulous Indian Reservation. At 18, another massive late ’68 UK hit fave for Jeannie C. Riley and Harper Valley PTA, which hit my top 5. I scoured record shops in the mid-70’s as a student buying up any of these 1968 faves I could find.

Even later than Jeannie, Judy Clay & William Bell was an early 1969 goodie hit in the UK, but just a minor US hit at this time, and duly in at 31, making space for even more faves in 1969 when I chart them. Billie Davis gets the 3rd rapid-fire version of Angel Of The Morning to amke the top 40, Randy Newman climbs into the 30 as the lovely song just gets better the more I play it. Understated.

The Delfonics are back with another soul smoothie, Anita Harris covers Mama Cass and gets away with it, just about, Gladys Knight covers The Temptations and is just as good, more fiery than sad, while Andy Kim gets a second hit with a dubiously lyric-ed piece of pop fluff. 3 weeks to go till comparisons to what I liked then (strictly UK charts only in my top 20 charts) and now…..

17th August 1968

It’s 2 weeks on top for the late great Aretha, keeping the Bacharach-David songs totalling 5 as another Herb Alpert new entry joins the previous one, with 2 Dionne’s climbing. Marty Wilde climbs into the top 5 as songwriter of Jesamine, and enters belatedly at 14 with huge 10-year-old-me fave Abergavenny, from earlier in the year but as a flop everywhere it wasn’t flagged in the Spring, so here it is now. His most charming record I think. Another late new entry for Boyce & Hart, Monkees-songwriters and an act in thier own right, with the theme tune to a minor little film fave I saw in the RAF Swinderby camp cinema. Back in those days every RAF base had it’s own cinema, operated by RAF staff in the evenings, and Saturday mornings. Films that had been and gone in the main town cinemas, or never got a major release, did the rounds a year or two or three later, around 4 or 5 films a week. That’s how I got to see Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows, a 1968 follow-up to teen-movie The Trouble With Angels. That’s also how I got to see Olivia Newton-John’s cheesy brit sci-fi musical film Toomorrow years earlier than Grease, which wasn’t her movie debut at all!

Don Fardon enters my top 10 2 years earlier than the UK, and Jeannie C. Riley a few months early, and Leapy Lee debuts inside the 40 with Little Arrows, an early pop success for songwriter, and future pop star, Albert Hammond, and Mike Hazlewood, with many a classic song to come over the next decade or so. I saw Albert the other year in concert, very enjoyable hearing that back catalogue. The Grass Roots go top 40 with a US hit goodie, and a minor US hit enters at 55 for Avant-Garde, a bit of a period weird-ey, but one I liked when I first heard it yesterday, even nicking a bit of the James Bond theme strings.

Well-known pop-rock entries for Status Quo, The Band, and The Rolling Stones, just beating new ones from The Sweet Inspirations (Whitney’s mom back again, this time covering Unchained Melody) and Lou Rawls, who still had 8 years to wait for his brilliant UK hit.

25th August 1968

It’s the calm before a storm in a quiet week and the late great Aretha on top for a 3rd week, and a bit of jostling about until you get to jumps into the 40 for Avant-Garde’s Bond-flavoured hippie goodie, The Stones rockin’ it and Quo icy cool.

Another fave from The Mamas & The Papas pops in as the highest new entry, one of the tracks featured on their 1973/74 budget album compilations that I played to death, For The Love Of Ivy. I also always had a soft spot for the tuneful harmony bubblegum pop of Vanity Fair, and they aren’t far behind with I Live For The Sun. Marvin’s joining himself in the charts again, solo this time, with a Motown goodie in Chained, The Impressions get a 4th of the year for Curtis Mayfield, The Cowsills get a 4th as well, sounding ever-more like the Partridge Family (unsurprisingly), and The O’Jays also enter with one still inside the top 30.

Next week is where my charting days started in 1968 (sort of) so it will be more volatile as I post what I like now (these retro charts) and compare with what I liked at the time (as judged a few years later when memories were still fresh and my musical tastes hadn’t changed that much and just based on the UK singles chart only)…
