Stupefied: The NME UK Top 20 Singles of 1976

Here we are in 1976...the NME still looked like this (look up), and the year end charts are getting really interesting. '76 could really be looked at as the peak of rock culture as we knew it. Punk is coming on, there's still some so called classic rock making an appearance, a little pub rock, and of course there's some R&B/Soul (although the selections for the year are fairly mediocre). The really strong thing for this chart is the roots reggae with stone cold classics from Lee Perry, Junior Murvin, and Max Romeo - all Lee Perry productions...well done, Scratch!
