     NOTE: We don't have the store printed list this week.
     The top ten albums reflected above are a repeat of last
     week's top ten for continuity.

     NOTE: In the Bush was not played this week, most likely
     because WABC was going to air the year-end Top 77 by the end
     of this survey week and they didn't intend to air it during 
     the special week. It is played again for the first survey
     of 1979.
