Top of the Box By Tim Worthington
eBook (PDF): $4.56
From Every Loser Wins to Awesome Dood!, the story behind every single released by BBC Records And Tapes. Between 1970 and 1990, BBC Records And Tapes released almost three hundred singles, ranging... More > from some of the best known theme tunes in television history, to full-length versions of ones that nobody had even asked for a short version of to begin with.

Possibly the most bafflingly diverse catalogue of singles ever issued, it's a fascinating indication of what really was popular - and sometimes unpopular - with viewers at the time. Top Of The Box tells the story behind each of these singles, taking in familiar names, cult artists and obscure bafflements alike, and including the likes of Simon May, Nick Berry, Brown Sauce, The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and of course Keith Harris & Orville. So many singles by Keith Harris & Orville. Including one that wasn't even released...< Less
