* Andy listed number 37 as Let Me In Your Life by Linda Lewis but we have been unable to find a Linda Lewis LP of that name. Her 1974 release was called Heart Strings. However Aretha Franklin had just released an album called Let Me In Your Life. Could he have got the two confused?



Our thanks to Andy.
