* Mark didn't read out the name of the record at number 12. Scott Sullivan, who provided the recording, has suggested that the missing track might be “Tiny Goddess” by Nirvana which had been number 24 on the previous week's chart but seems to be missing from this one.
 
** Thanks to Ian Biggar for his help in identifying this track. www.45cat.com reveals that the record was produced by Radio Scotland boss Tommy Shields.




Many thanks to Scott Sullivan.
