1968

Elvis, The Beatles and Lulu dominated. Meanwhile the Fab Four sent in an annotated note that said: “We are very grateful (indeed) and you may never know how much and such like you know (how it is).” Elvis, on the set of something called ‘Chautauqua’ wrote us a personal message:
“I am truly impressed to receive the news that I am named among the winners of the NME Poll. I value your vote of loyalty always, Elvis.”
Meanwhile Dusty Springfield thanked us for “giving me a very happy five years!”
