This is a fun episode, with lively performances from Wizzard and Slade and the audience seem to be enjoying themselves too, for a change. Oh and Sir James presents this episode dressed in a Womble outfit!
The same chart was used for this week and for the following week, as no chart was published for the week ending 29th Dec. So the chart used in this episode was actually the last top 30 for 1973.
Quality is good, captured from an off-air SP VHS recording.
Like many programs shown on UK Gold in the 90s, this may have been edited to fit adverts in.
