Notes[edit]

  • "Amarillo" had originally been written by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield for the British pop star Tony Christie, who made a #18 hit out of it. Later in the 2000s, "Amarillo" would enjoy newfound popularity thanks to comedian Peter Kay using the Tony Christie version in a number for Comic Relief.
  • Captain & Tennille produced a cover version of "You Never Done It Like That" in 1978, which went to #10 on the US pop charts.
