Chartbusters '69 - David Byron

I was round at a mates house the other day listening to Heep (this would be the same person that i took to see the band on their UK tour in December), The same person who up until 6 months ago thought that the only heep songs in existence were The wizard and easy livin. anyway there i was listening to some great songs when he brought out his vinyl collection of which is not very extensive but for the most part is all classic 70s rock and it is all in excellent condition. Although he had no Heep, I have since corrected  that situation. Imagine his face when I asked him if he had any "Top of the Pops" albums. Then imagine my face when he produced this one. "Chartbusters '69" which we know one David Byron contributed some of the vocals to

I have now listened to this several times and there  is no doubt in my mind that he provides lead vocals on at LEAST 4 of the tracks
