Unfortunately they do not appear in the singles chart of the week in the BBC charts released on the 22nd January 1972.

Let’s Stay Together by Al Green

Albert Greene was born in 1946 and has up  to date sold around 20 million records.

Willie Mitchell of  Hi Records took Al under his wing in the late 1960s, and many gold records came from that unison. This single came from the album of the same name and was co written by Al. In late 1970s Al went back to mainly gospel music, but he would still have single hits to come in the 70s music charts.

No. 16

Where Did Our Love Go by Donnie Elbert

Donnie “The chancellor of soul” was born in 1936 and died in 1989, and was once a backing singer, and then had hits in the 1950s and 1960s, and at the time of this hit moved from the U.S. to live in the UK. He was assumed to have produced the hit “Shame,Shame,Shame” by Shirley and Company in the 1970s, but a case went against him, so it was left unproven. The song was a great disco song anyway.
