1966

1966 was a golden year in pop and so our awards proved. Elvis, The Beatles, The Beach Boys and Dusty all won awards. Our man said: “They are not the only victors, by any means. But they have secured their successes- to some extent, unexpectedly- by deposing other firmly established champions. And for this reason, their triumphs are all the more praiseworthy.”
