for Sunday 4th September 1966
on the whole, it seems that this week's 'ordinary' climbers which include Guantanamera, Have You Ever Loved Somebody and Bend It,
were destined to fare much better chartwise than those selected as DJ hit picks

Leaping up to #5 in this week's Fab Forty, Here, There and Everywhere was released outside the UK in a number of different picture sleeves, most of them designed around the same photo. (We love Roger Glover's groovy checked flares!) The 'B' side, Mighty Morris Ten, is a spoof on the US drag racing craze. The 10hp Morris Ten would have needed an engine replacement to be a match for a little Deuce Coupe!
