Klein's Pixs

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The criterion for these is fairly arbitrary. I limited myself to songs issued on 45's between about December 1970 and December 1971.

I compiled this mostly from memory, so there are doubtless some grevious errors. I would probably draw up a completely different selection tomorrow. 1. Groove Me  King Floyd 2.
