#1s of 1970 to 1975 - mono or stereo 45s

Postby Theo » Sat Feb 06, 2016 8:10 pm

As per the thread for 1968 and 1969 in the 1960s forum, I'm trying to find out which UK #1s in the transition period (when singles were issued in both mono and stereo) from the late 1960s to mid 1970s were issued in those formats. Below is a list of what I've managed to find out so far. A '?' next to mono/stereo means that's what it says on the record label, and I haven't found out what's actually on the disc (Apple used EMI mono matrixes for the Beatles' first stereo single, so the label may not always be 100% correct!).

If you can fill in any gaps from having heard the original UK 45s, please let me know (or just reply here).
