Volume 31 (SHM 825) - June 1973
Our Top of the Pops albums are the recording phenomenon of today.
How else can you describe a budget priced, 12-track, top-quality, beautifully-sleeved, internationally distributed L.P. which is consistently the best selling album of its kind IN THE WORLD?
This is our thirty-first issue. Look at the tunes - all of them way, way up in the charts - or on the way up.
So, pop fans, grab your copy and start rocking. (Make sure, though, you pay the dealer for it, ‘cos he may not like it if you don’t). Pop people - that’s all you kids, teenagers, mod mums and dads - we thank you for your support, we thank you for everything.
Comments: This LP contains a legendary cut in "Walk on the Wild Side". Bruce Baxter commented, "I was not happy with that. That was sung by Danny Street, a very respected session singer. Everyone had trouble with it. One of the worst ones." And as a Mojo journalist wryly observed, "More like a newsreader reciting a shopping list than Lou Reed."
