My Retro May 1967 Charts

5th May 1967

2 weeks on top for R. Dean Taylor just holding of a new entry from The Kinks – that classic Waterloo Sunset. PP Arnold keeps the Cat Stevens top 10 hitlist going, The Trems keep the Gaudio/Crewe hitlist going – and look, there’s another of theirs in at 19 as the classic singalongaFrankie Valli – later done bigger in the UK by Andy Williams, Boystown Gang and the greatest version Pet Shop Boys – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You pops in.

Elsewhere, Tommy James B side is doing much better than the A side, James Bond takes Herb Alpert into the top 20 as his cover of the Ramsey Lewis gem potters around lower. The Guardians Of The Galaxy soundtrack Motown original of Ain’t No Mountain is in at 46, almost as good as the OTT cover by Diana Ross on it’s way in 3 years, Spanky & Our Gang’s well-known US hit drops by, a good Motown obscurity from Barbara McNair is new in, a 60’s US oldies radio fave from The Grass Roots is also new, and ditto The Music Explosion’s A Little Bit Of Soul, later picked up in 1972 by Jonathan King for UK Records resissued UK airplay – but no sales.

Hendrix does better than Purple Haze’s feeble peak of 75, in at 72 for his most radio-friendly track, while New Vaudeville Band have a soundalike follow-up (again), and Jackie Wilson does what he does well.

12th May 1967

The Kinks grab a new Number One – now had I been doing some charts on here back in 64 then You Really Got Me would have topped, and possibly Sunny Afternoon. The Trems Four Seasons cover is up to 6, as the actual Four Seasons are at 10 (whatever the label says) and The Beach Boys oldie cover shoots up to 11. Highest new entry The Walker Brothers also cover and early 60’s classic, at 34, just ahead of big climbs for Spanky & Our gang and Sonny & Cher. The original songs to later chart-toppers for me (Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, Say You Don’t Mind) and later hits (24 Sycamore and Here We Go Again) climb or enter, while The Staple Singers have a chart debut, and yet another old Monkees fave pops in too. Just waiting for Sgt Pepper eh? This chart could get VERY crowded….!

19th May 1967

New in on top and it’s the start of the Summer Of Love with the hippie anthem from The Mamas & The Papas..err I mean John Phillips very generous gift to Scott McKenzie (imagine if he’d kept it, ah if only). I loved this song at the time, in the sunny days living on the Isle Of Anglesey (rural RAF Valley), as did my mum. I still love it. One I didn’t know at the time is up to 4 (Frankie Valli’s classic original), as Pet Clark is straight in at 11 with another childhood fave from the days when Tony Hatch knocked out the melodic pop gems on a weekly basis – Don’t Sleep In The Subway.

Another biggie in at 14, the original Light My Fire, The Doors classic, another I knew in later years (Jose Feliciano was MY original), and up nearly 50 places another song I knew but a version I didn’t – Wayne Fontana’s earlier version of Gene Pitney’s 24 Sycamore. The Walker Brothers return to the top 20 with another cover – this time Walking In The Rain – and Tommy James hits my top 20 with a track that should have been a big A side single. Much better than the otherwise-decent Mirage.

A band I’d never heard of 6 months ago, The Five Stairsteps, replace themselves in my top 40 with a great cover of Smokey Robinson’s Ooh Baby Baby, and the timeless trippie-classical groove from Procol Harum is in at 34, 5 years ahead of it making my real charts in 1972. A great Grass Roots track goes top 40, one I got to know on Florida 60’s oldies radio in the 90’s – they tended to pick a theme (in this case records from 1963 to 1973) and then play oldies from that era on rotation as if they were new tracks. As I used to holiday in Orlando most years, that was a voyage of 60’s oldies discovery for me, taping onto cassette from the radio.

Up Up And Away, 2 versions, The Johnny Mann version was the UK hit version I knew at the time and liked, but The 5th Dimension I got to know in 1969 to 1971 and became a huge fan of (they were on Ed Sullivan shows broadcast on Singapore TV, and on Singapore radio) – so that gets the higher chart placing. Others: a Dusty goodie, Showstoppers later UK hit, The Association’s Windy (not a UK hit but a well-known song), Engelbert’s monster follow-up, Manfred’s Tommy Roe cover, and a bunch of super-heroes at 75. Ah if only….

26th May 1967

2 weeks on top for Scott McKenzie’s hippie anthem, holding off a challenge from The Doors at 3. That’s the position the long version peaked at on re-issue in the 90’s in my charts. Wayne Fontana and The Walker Brothers go top 10, which is about as well as The Partridge Family did with it in 1973 – hey I liked David Cassidy and the TV show!

A big leap for Procol Harum into the 20, which A Whiter Shade Of Pale did in 1972 for me, and a lesser-known Northern Soul Motown gem from The Four Tops turns the top 20 gloomy as well as pale. The Five Stairsteps take Smokey Robinson into the 20, while Johnny Rivers enters with another Smokey song.

Highest new entry at 30 is that American hit and UK flop, incredibly, for Van Morrison – Brown Eyed Girl. I swear it was on constant rotation on Florida radio each year I holidayed in the 90’s. Far and away his best solo record, too. 2 versions of The Boat That I Row side by side, 2 versions of Up Up And Away, one of them not floating as high as the better version, and a new entry for Traffic, newly-hot with Paper Sun at 36.

Jeff Beck & Dave Dee & co go top 40, Vikki Carr’s MOR classic is in at 58, and childhood fave Carrie Ann pops in a bit lower. One of my parents younger RAF friend couples had this one (Jimmy & Vera had some singles I liked so I enjoyed popping round for biscuits and playing their records, Jimmy was in his early 20’s, mum was very nearly ancient at 28, dad was 30).
