David Bowie

A: Starman
B: Suffragette City
In 1972, promo records sent to radio stations were typically in mono, as FM (and therefore stereo) hadn't become popular. First off, it wasn't until 6/1/61 that station WGFM became the first FM station in the US to broadcast in stereo.

It was mostly used for classical music and such, until the mid-70s. It took a few more years, until 1978, that listenership to FM stations exceeded that of AM stations. During the 1980s and 1990s, Top 40 music stations and later even country music stations largely abandoned AM for FM.

Today AM is mainly the preserve of talk radio, news, sports, religious programming, ethnic (minority language) broadcasting and some types of minority interest music.

Paul Revere And The Raiders Featuring Mark Lindsay

A: Cinderella Sunshine
B: Theme From It's Happening
There seems to be some confusion on the B-side title. I don't know about the numbers and such, but I do know the difference between the songs.If this helps settle the confusion, you're welcome. If I'm confused as to what the, er, confusion, is about...disregard the following.

"Happening '68" is the theme for the January '68 to July '69 weekly ABC-TV show of the same name. It was used for the "'Too Much Talk" B-side.

"It's Happening" is the theme for the July to September '68 ABC-TV summer/daily series theme. It was used for the "Cinderella Sunshine" B-side,

Styx

A: Mademoiselle
B: Light Up
I haven't heard the single since it was played on the air when released, so I don't remember if it was fast or not. I did notice that the single label has the time as 3:25, while the album clocks it at 3:57. I just supposed it'd been edited or faded early, but the time discrepancy of 30 seconds could be due to it's being sped up. Interesting. That might account for it not charting any higher than #36.

The Allman Brothers Band

A: Ramblin' Man
B: Pony Boy
It's of interest to note that the time for the A side is ten seconds longer than that listed on the album. 4:48 is also what my copy from the DREAMS box set says and times out at, so I'm going to assume that the single labels (stock and promo) are erroneous.
