"The Heavy Sound" on 45



I guest hosted for Ms. Novak on KOOP Radio Austin's Rock N Roll Pest Control yesterday, where I spun nothing but early '70s rock singles, none of which charted above #30 in Billboard. Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath were disqualified for overfamiliarity. As Steve Marriott would say, it was a gas. (A list of higher charting singles is on page 117 of my book.)

"Take Me Back 'Ome" - Slade (1972, #97)
"Questions" - Bang (1971, #90)
"He's Gonna Step On You Again" - Kongos (1971, #70)
"Standing in the Rain" - The James Gang (1973, #101)
"Gimme Shelter" - Grand Funk Railroad (1971, #61)
"You Could Have Been a Lady" - April Wine (1972, #32)
"Kissin' Time" - Kiss (1974, #83)
"Sing a Song for Freedom" - Frijid Pink (1970, #55)
"(Don't Try to Lay No Boogie Woogie on) The King of Rock and Roll" - Crow (1971, #52)
