    In fact if you look at the 70's label site, (link below) which lists record labels by cat number in order, it becomes clear that record labels were always re-issuing records. Most simply didn't sell enough to make the charts.

    1976 was another year they went mad on. Notably when the Beatles singles were re-issued.
    In many ways it was just easy money for the record companies since they didn't have any recording costs. Plus they were often used on TV adverts.

    The Tornados continue to hold everything at bay, Little Eva will be stopped in her tracks, Cliff realises It Won't Be Him, and in comes Del Shannon with my personal favourite of his, The Swiss Maid, a great pop record.

    Somebody this week [13/10/62] was making their debut in the RR chart @ #49 I'll wonder who that can be?

    In a week or 2 [or days when you're posted the UAC] I'll wonder where they'll get to?

    I first heard 'Let's Dance' when it was a hit again in '72.

    It sounded great even then!

    Although challenging for the top position Tommy Roe will have to wait another 6 years to finally achieve this.

    Two cracking new entries this week. Chris Montez with the timeless Let's Dance, and The Four Seasons with Sherry, loved it then and love it now. Bellissimo

    From this week you will note that DISC now also compile a Top 30, in line with this the BBC also start to compile a Top 30 although they would not refer to this for another five years continuing to only relate to a Top 20.

    After a decade of regular visits to the chart Nat King Cole debuts with his last chart hit, and one of his best remembered.

    Mr. Acker Bilk after huge success with 'Stranger' decides to have another go with a smooth lush ballad and charts with 'Lonely'

Then it is completely absent for the weeks 17th, 24th, and 31st on the transcript. It re-appears on 6th September.
    Interesting. "I'm Telling You Now" is missing from the EARLY Dave/Trevor BBC files for Aug 1963, but shows up in the LATER file revisions, at #28, #12, #3, #2.

    Yes It seems that some time between the Decca audition and the EMI signing the Beatles decided that they wanted only self-composed singles. A key dynamic was Martin's response. He set the bar high by giving them How Do You Do It, which in his expert opinion was number one material, and challenged them to come up with something as good.
    Any sympathy anyone could have had for Pete Best was lost when he decided to join the Employment Service persecuting the unemployed!

    Surprisingly it's MM out of step this week with Elvis at #4 but #1 in all other 3 charts. Just weird.
    1962 comes alive with the utterly brilliant and captivating Telstar by The Tornados setting the chart alight. It will also become the UK's third US number one.
