We present the results of specific heat measurements on single crystals of C60 in (pure) fcc and (toluene containing) orthorhombic phases. The orientational ordering phase transitions are at surprisingly close temperatures (260K and 239K) for the two polytypes. The single crystal results are compared with DSC measurements on powders.
