Just like it was done with 1973 a few years ago, part 1 is an "artificial" creation. Casey didn't actually count down songs 80-41, but it's going to sound like he did. kenmartin did a wonderful job on that 1973 countdown, and I'm really looking forward to the 1971 show. 🙂
So that's why there's no cue sheets for that part of the show.
Cue sheet mistakes for 1971 Countdown: Cue sheet has "Help Me Make It Through the Night" at 37, but is 36, "Rainy Days and Mondays" at 38 but is 37, and "If I Could Read Your Mind at 36 but is 38.
Actually, the list of BB's Top 100 singles for 1971 on Wikipedia is wrong. The cue sheet is correct as it matches the year end pop singles chart in the 12/25/1971 issue of BB as well as the original 1971 AT40 YE show.
There aren't any errors on the 1/19/1985 cue sheet, but there were two strange things I noticed:
1) On Neutron Dance at #20, the "The" in "The Pointer Sisters" is in parenthesis. 2) Whoever originally had this cue sheet in their possession must have been in denial that Philip Bailey and Phil Collins where at #5 with Easy Lover, as the entire entry is crossed out.
