In that special week of July people in US were listening to Love Will Keep Us Together by The Captain and Tennille. In UK Whispering Grass by Windsor Davies & Don Estelle was in the top 5 hits. Smile, directed by Michael Ritchie, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1975 while Far Tortuga by Peter Matthiessen was one of the best selling books.
