Sorry Mark, I don't use a website for that information.  I get it all from my trusty Billboard Book Of Top 40 Hits.  8)

Some fine stuff here - special mention to...

Roberta Flack - one of the many highlights of 70's soul, this performance...

'TSOP' was great...didn't do too well here, but was always played at discos - apparently 'MFSB' stands for something else apart from 'Mother, Father, Sister, Brother'...but not here...!!

Interesting to note how 'disco' could mutate...basically straight with 'Night Fever', then mixed in with New Wave a la Blondie...great stuff...
