  1. When they played BOC’s (Don’t Fear) The Reaper, did it have the manic guitar solo (as is on the album)? There is a single mix which removes it. I cannot think of a worse example of an unsympathetic edit.

  2. Boz Scaggs’ ‘Lowdown’ is my hands-down favorite of all the songs on this week’s chart. I also like the top 3 songs too, but I was an unabashed fan of disco, so can understand how others could dislike #1 and #2. I think you’re a bit harsh giving England Dan & John Ford Coley’s sweet song a ‘D’. I’ll admit it’s a bit sappy, but deserves at least a B-
