Nyki mentioned one, but other number ones while this was on were:

19th April - Desmond Dekker and The Aces: The Israelites

26th April to 31st May - The Beatles with Billy Preston: Get Back

7th June - Tommy Roe: Dizzy

And of all four I have only ever heard(of) one of them and that's Dizzy.

 Huh?  The Israelites was the first ever cross-over reggae hit in Britain, and one of the best.  And the Beatles - well, were the Beatles.  Get Back was the one they did on the roof of the Apple building, which was their last ever live performance.

I loved it at the time (or soon after, at any rate) but I'm not sure what I'd think of it now.
