Another experimental old chart post: 1967

So, I've been posting these in one or two places every week, but once in a while I like to try them out on here, as it's easier to link to on a blog. And it also gives me the opportunity to embed some videos - there are more of them than you might think considering how long ago this is. 

In addition, anyone who uses We7 or Spotify can hear as much of the chart as I could find, though that doesn't include either of the Top 2.

Thanks to Chartstats for chart data. Note that this is the Record Retailer chart which is now used for "official" reference works, not necessarily the most familiar to people at the time.
