By far the best book I have read about the AM hit singles of the early 70's that I grew up on. From "Don't Pull Your Love" to "American Pie" to "Family of Man" to "Billy Don't Be A Hero", the pop charts were full of riches. In 1972 you could hear "School's Out" back to back with "Sealed With A Kiss", "Long Cool Woman", "Down By The Lazy River" and "Backstabbers" and that's how it was. Music was mixed together, things weren't grouped into genres as much as they later did. Breithaupt knows that era too and his themed chapters capture that era perfectly.
