* Despite this chart showing The Troggs' “Wild Thing” being at number 6 on last week's City Sixty, there was no mention of it on that document. Correspondent Gareth Jones thinks that the Troggs' record might have been a late addition but possibly at number 60 rather than number 6. He writes: “My reason for this is that on 8th May it is listed as number 42 and on the following weeks it continued to rise from that point. It seems likely therefore, especially as they were at that stage a pretty unknown band, that it entered at 60 and rose upward. Entering at 6, then dropping to 42 and then reversing back up the chart seems pretty unlikely. I know the pirate radio charts often did some odd things, but this one would be too odd for words.”
