  1. I have a soft spot for The Rubberband Man…I bought the single at the dime store discount bin for 10 cents a few years later. You do get a mixture with this one.

  2. More Than A Feeling was on its way up while I Never Cry was waning in popularity. Love So Right by the Bee Gees was charting then, their pre-disco period, but their best for me, which produced Nights on the Broadway.
