On the cover: Not for the first time, Top of the Pops are up in the clouds for their latest edition, brought to you by a frizz-permed lady in shocking pink cat suit. She’s trying hard to spruce things up with an off-the-shoulder strategy and a dangly wrap around, but there’s something about this cover which looks a bit dull. In fact ever since the ‘16 Tracks’ logo had been introduced the covers had relied a little too much on the impact of these body-clinging garments, forgetting that balance and harmony are all important in good cover design. As for the drawing on the back, a pair of short, fat, hairy legs is hardly the stuff Top of the Pops is made of.
GAME, SET AND MATCH TO TOP OF THE POPS!
Yet again, with one magnificent set, Pickwick Top of the Poppers prove themselves to be worthy champions.
Their unbeatable strategy of lobbing 16 smash hit sounds straight from the charts and into the record shops leaves no room for doubt that they will be the title holders for many years to come.
