1966: At a time when the airwaves and record charts where dominated by Rock and Roll, a most unusual song called "Winchester Cathedral" by The New Vaudeville Band became the number one tune in the US. It also reached the top in the UK. The song would go on to win the 1966 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Recording, edging out The Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations", The Beatles' "Elenor Rigby", The Mamas & The Papas' "Monday Monday," The Association's "Cherish" and The Monkees' "Last Train To Clarksville".
