For 2/5/72: #1 Album: American Pie - Don McLean (3rd straight week) #1 Soul: "Let's Stay Together" - Al Green (5th straight week) #1 Country: "One's On The Way" - Loretta Lynn (written by Shel Silverstein)
BTW, this is one of the rare shows that Casey didn't announce the other chart-toppers, although he did say what the top album was.

Trying to answer 2 of the issues that were brought up in earlier posts today. Casey started mentioning the chart date on 7/14/73. As for the #1s on other charts, can anyone confirm the 4/15/72 date? I did not hear him mention other #1s until 10/7/72 and heard 2 shows from August of '72 in which he did not mention other #1s.
