by admin ·
This was the week that the British Embassy in Dublin was complely destroyed by demonstrators, who were more than angry about the actions of British troops in the Bloody Sunday fiasco. It was the same day that eleven victims of Bloody Sunday were buried.
Only three new entries into the BBC charts this week.
John Barry Died in 2010
Johnny Died in 2010
Family Affair by Sly And The Family Stone
Grammy Award winning song for this year for the group, with members Sly and Freddie Stone, who of course were brothers. Sly was born as Sylvester Stewart in Texas in 1943. The trumpeter was Cynthia Robinson, and drummer Greg Errico had just left the band at this point. More to come in the 1970s for this group.

Son Of My Father by Chicory Tip
Written by Giorgio Moroder who later this decade would work with Donna Summer, and he also had a hit in his own right with From Here To Eternity. Co writer Peter Belotte also worked with the Three Degrees and Melba Moore.
This British group with lead vocalist Peter Hewson, was just called Chicory in the U.S., and this song is famous for being the first pop record to have the Moog synthesiser.
