    The reason for the "revisited" tag on this has to do with each year in this decade already having been examined (and then some) individually as below . . .
    Every UK #1 Single of 1970 Discussion Thread
    Every UK #1 Single Of 1971 Discussion Thread
    Every UK #1 Single Of 1972 Discussion Thread (all 68 pages of it!!! in all its glory)
    Every UK #1 Single Of 1973 Discussion Thread (a close second, with 58 pages to leaf through)
    Every UK #1 Single Of 1974 Discussion Thread (42 pages)
    Every UK #1 Single Of 1975 Discussion Thread
    Every UK #1 Single of 1976 Discussion Thread
    Every UK #1 Single of 1977 Discussion Thread
    Every UK #1 Single of 1978 Discussion Thread.
    Every UK #1 Single of 1979 Discussion Thread
    . . . as helmed by the likes of @Bobby Morrow, @Randoms, @Yam Graham and @cut to the chase.

    But since these threads were started, more information, courtesy threads in UKMix and other sites (and other chart mavens including @Finchingfield), has come to light. In particular, the "other" #1's as on the Melody Maker charts (which have not been put forth on Wikipedia, other than the chart comparisons of the 1969-88 period as now there) as well as NME; plus the late, lamented Top Pops/Music Now, will be accounted for at the end of each year in a more organized and complete fashion than had been the case on the earlier threads. As well, as far as audio, some have been added and others deleted in the period since the original threads were put up. Some threads don't have the week-by-week count as others do. This should take care o' that. It is also the intention to get correct the chart dates, which vary wildly by some sources, and if practicable to mention the numerical sequence for those that topped the Official Charts that also did so on NME, Melody Maker and, up to 1971, Top Pops/Music Now. In other words, this is meant to be a supplement to the 10 individual threads above.

    With that in mind, we start off the year 1970 with the very last #1 of 1969 (and the 1960's), "Two Little Boys" by Rolf Harris. That, and the charts for the period that was at the top, and all the 45's from the period that saw some form of U.S. release, was already examined on this contributor's Every UK #1 Single of the 1960's Discussion Thread, so it won't be drug up twice.

    After a breather, the first "new" #1 of 1970 - again. :winkgrin:

    Meanwhile, take a gander at a new "old" thread:
    Every UK #1 Single of the 1950's Discussion Thread
    as we are beginning to wind down on the more recent period being dealt with:
    Every UK #1 Single of The 1990's Discussion Thread. (two years to go)

    Now for all what would be in my collection from all this:


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    (This and its flip, "Fortunate Son," was another US Top 10 success for the band.)

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    (In the U.S., this was the first Number One song of 1970 and the 1970's, reigning for four weeks from 03 January to 24 January 1970.)

    Edison Lighthouse - Love Grows. It is a cool song, I doubt I would buy it, I have is playing in my head just reading the title lol

    Some great songs in that chart though.
    Nice to see Tull up there. Elvis is obviously Elvis, and yes I'm a fan.
    Bridge Over Troubled Water is a brilliant piece of work. I like Paul Simon's stuff, and Simon and Garfunkel, but I don't think he ever topped that song.
    CCR

    Plenty of stuff I don't know, or don't love, but it's a good set of charts

    And now, for the first 'newies' to bloom in these five weeks:

    As always, the mono's the way ta go:

    The last US #1 for Fontana Records in this configuration. A prime example of "screwing up in reverse": The participants all wanted to make a record so bad it would be relegated to a mere B side - but the execs at Mercury thought otherwise.

    Apart from those in my collection, none of the other 'newies' had US equivalent release. Not even Ms. Gentry's.

    Oh, and again, mono is king - B.J. Thomas' "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head":

    Some mono pressings had a different vocal take through the bridge, as heard here. The one shown is what I have.

    The decade kicks off well with a pretty decent no. 1 in Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes, although five weeks at the top seems excessive. Vocals by Tony Burrows, whose name we're not finished with yet

    The era of the two-minute pop song appears to be over, and along with it the era of my listening to an entire track to review it ... (although I mostly did)

    Mary: the new decade really gets off on the right foot with this breezy, atmospheric gem (although it's pretty much all downhill from here). Quite the exotic sound, what with steel drums and all, although it doesn't sound particularly "island", whether Caribbean, Pacific or anything else

    Peddlers: like Booker T & the MGs with a faux-dramatic low-pitched voice sing-speaking over it

    J5: a far cry from Motown classics like Heat Wave or Baby Love. I'm not going to argue against their precocious talents but I just don't care for their sound

    Steam: fairly fast, anthemic in sports arenas for decades by now (I hope none of the Kansas City Chiefs' opponents' fans started singing it once their teams were up by 10 or more points, because they would have been in for a rude shock). One favourite feature: the high-note organ that comes in with the second verse

    Hermits: on the cutesy / sunshine pop side, with lyrics too jejune to be mistaken for thoughtful

    Lee: tries to sing in the style of a different Lee (Hazlewood), but can't really do it. However the song has a very nice orchestra-and-choir arrangement
    Clint: he seems to be able to sing a bit, but the song is less interesting than Lee's on the flip

    Glen: fairly lively track, better than I remembered

    Robin: appealing, moderately paced, in 3/4 (waltz) time. Lushly orchestrated, like much of the Robin's Reign album, although whether it was the best choice for leadoff track can be debated. The lyrics are a bit offbeat, but a fine song

    1st Ed.: the slow, smoldering verse builds and builds and builds, then ... the chorus is a damp squib. Not well done, and their weakest single

    White Plains: moderately quick track produced by The Two Rogers (Cook and Greenaway) which may or may not feature The One Session Singer (the aforementioned Tony Burrows) on lead vocals

    CCR: popular, appealing track in their fairly sparse rock style

    BoMan: earnest track with fairly nice production, but as with many similar efforts it's the vocals (combined), while far from awful, that diminish its appeal if anything does. Guess who's one of the male vocalists? Hint: see White Plains, above, and / or the opening blurb about Edison Lighthouse

    Pentangle: plenty of intersecting vocals, male and female, with intricate acoustic guitars and active percussion. I'm not too fussy on first listen but it might appeal more on repeated exposure

    Rare Bird: a cappella first verse, a simple strum backing comes in subsequent to that. Then a second, different vocalist comes in to wail. Not much production involved, and not very interesting

    Tams: sophisticated production on this one, perhaps looking back 2-4 years, a good effort

    Jimmy: mid-paced with good rhythm and a reggae influence, some nice percussion fills and an organ in the bridge for a bit. It sounds alright but the chorus is just the title country name repeated several times

    Lennon: well-known track with sing-speak-scream vocals, that pilfers the piano backing of Badfinger's debut Come and Get It, possibly. Never much of a favourite here

    B. J.: always disliked this, for its annoying insouciance and general uninterestingness. Give me his heyday of superb songs like Billy and Sue and Mama, please

    S & G: notable for its depth in both words and music, with about as big a production as you can get with piano base, needs no introduction really

    Dorothy: slow, with nice smooth pleasant production that's MOR / old-timey but definitely at the upper end. The vocals tend to grate in places, unfortunately

    Bobbie: see Thomas, B. J., not far above. I think it's better arranged though

    Barry: slow piano-based intro for about forty seconds, then it starts to roll (or rock). Possibly through-composed, which means listening to its entirety is almost mandatory. It goes here, there and everywhere, i. e., it borders on prog, currently being invented contemporaneously

    Cliff & Hank: starts off with a couple of low, fuzzy guitar sounds that mimic a buzzsaw (and which repeat once later on), the verses are fairly slow, the choruses double up the pace and feature near-gospelly backing vocals. One of the better efforts of these few weeks' songs

    P'witch: moderately fast bubblegum / sunshine pop track, not bad but hardly wonderful. The female vocalist is Polly Brown, of later Up in a Puff of Smoke note, although here she sounds like she has a cold in her nose

    Elvis: a tear-jerker about a split family, "you've still got me and little Tommy, together we'll find a brand new mommy". Entirely too maudlin for my liking, although I could possibly say something nice about the strings if I could stand listening to the whole thing

    Joe: going for the Tom Jones vibe of a few years earlier, and the longer it goes on the more I think he succeeds; not bad at all

    Jimmy: another pleasing soul track from the man, this one faster than his best-known tunes and in 6/8 time

    Single of the Week: Temma Harbour. Other worthies: Steam, Robin Gibb, the Tams, Simon and Garfunkel, Barry Ryan, Joe Dolan, Jimmy Ruffin

    The J5 weren't even being backed by the "Funk Brothers" here, but rather by L.A. studio musicians. That's part of why the "sound" is different from those early tracks you mentioned. The bass is most likely a Fender Telecaster Bass or Precision Bass, played by Wilton Felder who was also a member of The Crusaders jazz group. There's a definite "tone" emanating from that bass that if one hears it, they can spot it right away.

    I didn't necessarily like everything the Funk Brothers worked on, but there was a much higher probability ...

    And there are plenty of songs on which others among L. A. studio musicians (e. g., the Wrecking Crew) performed that I enjoy immensely. So maybe it's just the J5 themselves that I don't care for ...

    Which would in time lead to a heap o' controversy on TOTP.

    Burrows made Ron Dante (of The Archies and The Cuff Links) look like a piker in comparison. The TOTP situation would have been like if, say, Dick Clark booked The Archies and The Cuff Links to lip-sync to their respective big hits on one edition of American Bandstand - live on tape, with Dante as part of both acts. (And at the time, AB was on ABC while the Archie cartoon shows were on CBS, so you - or Clark - couldn't show the animated episode which contained "Sugar, Sugar.")

    As for BoM: This was Mark I. We're a ways off from how we know them. While Roger Cook was in Blue Mink, his writing partner Roger Greenaway was in this version of BoM - as were sisters Sue Glover and Sunny Leslie. (The burly one was veteran songwriter and producer John Goodison, who co-wrote "United We Stand" under the pseudonym Peter Simons in tandem with the group's creator and longtime mastermind Tony Hiller.)

    Jackson Five's I Want You Back, is a classic.
    It takes the weepy break up tune and turns it into a positive, joyous bouncing track, instead of the normal slow, misery laden, faux-deep style that these types of lyrics usually use.

    Edison Lighthouse - Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)

    Following the slightly morose Two Little Boys, this Edison Lighthouse massive hit is positively uplifting.

    Having inherited this single from my father, I love the UK record label, the last I have before the silver with black.

    I bought a Mary Hopkin comp sometime around the original thread. A wonderful singer and very nice song.

    Herman's Hermits - Years May Come, Years May Go




    Seems so twee listening to this now, but I loved it as a seven year old!

    Their U.S. label, MGM, must've thought this "twee" at the time, as they never released it in the States.

    Now we move on . . .
    #2 of 1970 (#282 in total) - "Wand'rin' Star" by Lee Marvin / "I Talk To The Trees" by Clint Eastwood
    (#1 for 3 weeks - 07 March 1970-21 March 1970)

    plus the B side

    The UK single:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    In the US, only the A side was issued on 45; the B side saw no such release:
    [​IMG]
    Wikipedia entry - in the UK, also NME #284 / Melody Maker #230 (same time period and duration of weeks as BMRB), did not make top of Top Pops/Music Now charts; in the US, did not even bubble under Billboard's Hot 100.
