A Taste Of Honey – Boogie Oogie Oogie / World Spin (1978, Vinyl) - Discogs

American Top 40- The 1970’s- Week of September 9, 1978. The top of the charts not all that great but there are some gems in this 40- my Mount Rushmore- ‘Miss You’ The Rolling Stones/ ‘A Rock N Roll Fantasy’- The Kinks/ Right Down The Line- Gerry Rafferty and I will go with a little known one that I’ve always loved “Magnet And Steel’- Walter Egan.. with ‘Just What I Needed’ on deck. I forgot the Cheryl Ladd hit- she was a better actress than a singer- not that she was Betty Davis as an actress.
