    My 1961 favourite is Frankie Vaughan’s ‘Tower of Strength’.

    The guiding principle was one track per year, and no two tracks by the same artist (so the highest-marked track of 68, Jumpin Jack Flash, got left off)

    Quick hint for Tom and all FT editors, if you use RELATIVE links (that start href=”/path/to/page”) rather than absolute links (href=”http://freaytrigger.co.uk/path/to/page”) it doesn’t add a comment to the ref’d page.

    A little late in the day, but how about follow ups of a curated 70s and 80s compo Tom?
