Notes.
1."I have a nice house and it's the house that 'Girls on the Avenue' built!" - 
Richard Clapton (2010). http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=U--PaPgwmYU
2. Clapton's commercial breakthrough came with his single, "Girls on the Avenue", 
(originally) issued in January 1975. Although Festival had little faith in the song
—initially releasing it as the B-side of "Travelling Down the Castlereagh"—it was 
picked up by radio and became a major hit, reaching the No. 4 spot on the 
Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart in March.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
