Every Chart Topper Tells a Story
  • Every Chart Topper Tells a Story

  • The seventies witnessed great changes not only in dress style but also in music. The psychedelia of the late sixties had mutated into glam rock by the early seventies, while the latter half of the decade is best remembered for the punk and disco explosions which gripped both Britain and America.

    The number-one singles of the decade are recalled in Every Chart Topper Tells a Story: The Seventies, from artists as diverse as Gary Glitter, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Diana Ross, The Bee Gees, T-Rex, Commodores, Donny Osmond, The Three Degrees and Abba. It is the ideal volume both for those wanting a trip down memory lane and for serious music connoisseurs.

Sharon Davis is considered a leading authority of Motown history. She is the author of several books, including Motown: The History, Diana Ross: A Legend in Focus and a series on chart-topping hits of the '60s, '70s and '80s. She is a features editor for Blues and Soul.
