The City Sixty, 6th - 12th February 1966


As before, the original document only lists the song titles, not the artists. We have attempted to fill in the gaps but, in some cases, have had to make an educated guess about which track is being referred to. If you spot any mistakes, please get in touch.
 
The previous chart was scheduled to remain in force until 4th February but this one is dated the 6th. Presumably there was a delay in supplying the fort with the new records.

* These appear to be the A and B sides of the same single.
 
** We had problems identifying this song as we couldn't trace a single from the period of the exact name. We suggested a couple of possibilities - ‘Bring Your Love Back Home’ by The Soul Mates or ‘Only Your Love Can Save Me’ by Andee Silver, both of which were released in February 1966. Michel Bands suggested “Save Your Love” by Tonny Rich which was released in January. However it looks as if correspondent Gareth Jones might have the answer. He writes: “There was a single of this name on sale early in 1966 by Jimmy James. It's an obscure ska record on the Ska Beat label. You can see a copy here.” Our grateful thanks to Gareth.
 
*** We previously suggested that “Gotta Get A Hold Of Myself” was by The Zombies. Michel Bands points out that The Zombies' version was not released until later in 1966. He thinks the City Sixty track must be the American original by Dee Dee Warwick. Our thanks to Michel.
 
**** Incorrect last week positions given in the original document.


Our thanks to Brian Long.
 
The Big L ‘Fab 40’ for this week can be found on the Radio London website. Radio Caroline South was off the air, following the grounding of the ship on Frinton beach, but the site also has a partial (unbroadcast) ‘Caroline Countdown’ for the week.
 
The links from the songs on this page lead to the Amazon MP3 Store where you can hear short audio clips of the tracks and customers in the UK can buy downloads. Please see this note.
 
There are a number of other offshore charts listed on The Pirate Radio Hall of Fame. Full details here.
 
Next week's City Sixty is here.
