    ITV Chart Show Rock Chart (28th April 1990)

    and hello to grunge! Kerrang! not up to speed on the debut of Soundgarden with Hands All Over (billed incorrectly as Sound Garden). [Nirvana and Mudhoney had both previously appeared on The Chart Show's Indie Chart]
    Hi, I have spent many hours searching in the British Library for Nirvana chart information in old publications that are not online. Do you know if there is any footage online for Nirvana's appearance on The Chart Show's Indie Chart ? And was this for the Sliver single or Blew EP ? Thanks.

    Edit: no worries I found it for Sliver on Youtube. Interesting that it's peak is number 5 which is different to the Melody Maker, Music Week and NME indie chart peaks for this song. Although none of those mags were using the MRIB chart for their indie charts at that point, if that is what ITV's Chart Show was using ?

    To quote the note in the magazine:

    "Spotlight Publications' very own research department is now kompiling the charts in-house, in klose konsultation with the Kerrang! krew and a wide variety of record retailers. We're konfident that this new approach will make our charts better than ever before and a truly accurate reflection of the type of disks you are buying..."

    Spotlight Research / Publications used to compile the specialist charts which appeared in sister publication Record Mirror but RM seems to have stopped publishing these charts by this point so presumably the Rock charts were made available to Kerrang. Music Week (like Kerrang and RM, also owned by Spotlight Publications) also changed chart compiler on 16 March 1985, also from MRIB to its own research department. It would surely have been cheaper to have used the same compiler. At least the MW Heavy Metal chart doesn't include 'No Jacket Required' though most of the other albums are in there.

    We've now arrived back at the point where the chart was taken over "in house" by Spotlight Publications.

    Hence, no prior week positions (and several rather debatable inclusions!)

    Tangerine Dream is a mistake - i noticed this in Music Week a few weeks ago. It's because it's on a label called Heavy Metal Worldwide but it's not a rock album. It's a synth soundtrack. https://www.discogs.com/release/7721...eam-Flashpoint

    According to the film's Wiki page the CD release of the album was recalled as a pressing error rendered it unplayable!
    More detail on the CD page here https://www.discogs.com/release/2355...eam-Flashpoint

    Makes sense, was hard to believe a venom and two manowar albums would have outsold outsold a David Gilmour solo album, but in rock oriented shops sounds plausible

    Possibly Music Week were publishing the MRIB Rock Chart at this point? I know they used to publish the MRIB Indie Chart but switched to compiling their own at some point in early 1985.

    Would I be right in thinking this isn't a 52 week chart? The 3rd January -29th December 1984 end of year album chart overall chart by music week has:

    16. ELIMINATOR ZZ Top 85 POWERSLAVE Iron Maiden
    90 FUGAZI Marillion
    93 PERFECT STRANGERS Deep Purple
    94 1984 Van Halen
    Dio and rush must have been like 100-110 in overall chart, or possibly should have been in the top 100?
