I feel it my duty to point out a glaring error... The single "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" was released under the artist name 'Paul & Linda McCartney'...not 'Wings'.

I feel its important to point out 1971 is not yet and is still far far far far far off turning 50

I admit I've never even heard of over half of those! It's incredibly how different the British and US charts can be!

I bought the .45. Loved that song. They also had a hit later on with a song called "One Monkey Don't Stop no Show", which I thought was great as well. I thought they were the 'new' Supremes for the 70s.
