All double albums apart from Goats Head Soup.

Sorry, I made an error in the question. I was getting my albums mixed up.  The question is now corrected.  Apologies.

Exile on Main Street wasn't a first album.

Which was the last single to reach number one in the UK charts in the 80s which didn't have a video? It made the singer the first black woman to top the UK charts with her own composition.

Looks ike this one has fallen prey to the curse of Google (and, yes, I was surprised by the answer too).  So, here's a new one to bump the thread along:

Graeme Edge, Moody Blues
Graham Gouldman, 10cc
Mike Love, The Beach Boys
Simon Nicol, Fairport Convention
Rick Davies, Supertramp

All have something in common but one is also the odd one out for a closely related reason. Who and why?

Graham Gouldman, because he's the only one I've heard of.  That makes the rest of the question quite hard for me, so I'm out! 
<edit> wait - just realised the Mike Love on your list is/was one of the Beach Boys...  Still none the wiser. </edit>
