Chart compiled by listeners voting
on the songs they hear on Radio Dupree

One month ago we predicted Zappa domination on the next Radio Dupree chart, much because of the release of Hammersmith Odeon, a 1978 live recording. Well, Zappa is number one but with a live 1988 remake of an old We're Only In It For The Money dittie, and holds two other positions on the new chart but only one song from Hammersmith Odeon.
Captain Beefheart (R.I.P.) shares a track with Zappa (from their collaboration Bongo Fury) and comes up with a total of three songs on our chart! A result of his death on December 17?
King Crimson: three tracks.
Steely Dan: two songs from Katy Lied.
Finally, the surprise of the month:
Union Carbide Productions as number two. A rather obscure Swedish band with their psychedelic San Fransisco Boogie.
