  • Trouble is ... we know that there are errors in that file, which can be graded as follows:

    1. Errors in transcription, not made by the BBC;

    2. Obvious errors which, had they been alerted, the BBC would not have made;

    3. Errors in consistency.

    The latter includes the tiebreaking criteria which was applied consistently in retro-POTP shows to remove ties - indicating that even the BBC realised their charts needed modifying.

    • It sounds as though it is as bad as David Armstrong's Pick Of The Pops book. That was awful. It used,without permission, Dave and Trevor's early charts and was riddled with omissions and errors. Yuck.

            • An exceptional single from Simon and Garfunkel is the highest new entry this week at #16. The Boxer is up there with Bridge Over Troubled Water as their finest.

              Sarah Vaughan and Billy Eckstine both had top ten hits back in 1959 and ten years later they are back in the top twenty with Passing Strangers, a reissue of a fifties track due to demand from being regularly featured on Two Way Family Favourites, Sunday radio show.

              The Fifth Dimension single will be America's second biggest seller this year and will go top twenty here.

              • I like 'Man Of The World' by Fleetwod Mac. Very introspective and I have read that writer Peter Green was already beginning to suffer mental health problems when he wrote the song, which might help explain some of the lyrics in the song.

                • No doubt about it Robbie Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac was THE Fleetwood Mac, so much better than the bland sterile version that followed.
                  Albatross, Man Of The World, and, Oh Well were all outstanding singles and I loved every one but a year later The Green Manalishi just blew me away, a stunning masterpiece of atmosphere, guitar work, and way out lyrics. I drove my parents mad blasting it out at full volume as only teenagers do ( and still do)

                        • 'My Way' at number 4 on the UAC - a place higher than where it will peak on the BMRB chart.

                          'Time Is Tight' at number 23 - the track would be used by Radio 1 DJ Johnnie Walker as the bed over which he would count down the new top 30 on a Tuesday lunchtime. It's where I first got to know the track.

                          • At this time Alan Freeman would run down the new Top 30 at 12.30 on Tuesdays, then play the number one.

                            He had started doing this on 3-Oct-67 in the first week of Radio 1, which is significant because it means that in the pre-BMRB Radio 1 period all contributory charts must have been submitted to the BBC in time for their chart to be calculated by Tuesday lunchtime. Presumably they had persuaded the RR guy to do his adding up on Monday instead of Tuesday!

                              Well, I have taken a punt and downloaded the book. It is miles better than the David Armstrong rip off. It is much more substantial than just being a a chart book. Each year has a separate section in addition to the charts. The contents are 1. Charting the charts (the history and how each chart differed, missing number ones and an interesting part that talks about early (MM and Disc hits) that didn't feature in record retailer. Then there are sections for each of the years. These are "The Story of 1960", "The Story of 1961" etc. In this he takes a look at new entries into the charts each month and gives quite a bit of background info. He uses these sections to illustrate trends in pop music throughout the decade. The guy had obviously done his research and he writes well. There is a list of the number 1s from each year and the top ten best sellers. I have looked at about twenty random charts and have checked them against the charts on this thread and have yet to find any errors. If I can find a gripe, he doesnt state on each chart that there are joint positions, although he does mention that at the beginning of the charts section. All in all, a decent and interesting read. I think this book is aimed at the sixties music fan rather than chart anoraks like us.

                                But that's good, because the more fans of the music generally read the info covered in this book, the more the word will get out about the complexities of '60s charts and if not already aware, make people realise that the rewritten chart history for 'official' purposes as just what RR compiled is very misleading. I daresay there would be many '60s music lovers who were around at the time and may have followed NME or MM, but still wouldn't realise that it's not those charts that are now considered canonical, and may be perplexed when they see sources quote info that doesn't tally with what they remember. It's all very well-trodden ground for chart enthusiasts, but it's time those who are less chart-focused are told the bigger picture on this period of pop. This tome apparently offers that, in a way that the likes of the OCC will never choose to do as it blurs their rounded-off convenient retrospective take on 'their' charts.

                                  Do the charts eventually go to a Top 30, and if so, when? Thanks...

                                        Billboard did compile a chart based on actual sales for just over a year. They announced it in the edition of June 17, 1957
                                        https://worldradiohistory.com/Archiv...1957-06-17.pdf

                                        The last chart was published in the issue of October 13, 1959

                                        • Good find baukew !! To clarify for others, this now actual sales based chart was the Best Sellers chart. So up thru June-17-1957, the Best Sellers chart was not based on counting records, and starting the next week it was. The other charts were 'DJ airplay' and 'jukebox play'. These 3 were combined into the Top 100 (1955) / Hot 100 (1958). And combined with the sheet music charts into the Honor Roll Of Hits song chart.

                                          There's an excellent article in the Oct-20-1958 issue of Billboard as well, explaining why they were ending the Best Sellers chart, and were now going to use that actual sales data in the Hot 100 chart going forward. As in, (a) the old Hot 100 had not been using actual sales (even though they had that data from the revised Best Seller charts since June-24-1957) + radio + jukebox, (b) but had been using some kind of 'approximation of sales' + radio + jukebox, and (c) was now going to switch over entirely to actual sales only, no more radio + jukebox !!

                                          Billboard was continually changing the components of the Top 100 / Hot 100 over the years. Originally both were airplay + jukebox + sales, but they kept changing things, taking things out, putting them back in. Sometime after Oct-20-1958 when the Hot 100 went to actual sales only, they eventually added back in radio + jukebox. It's a zoo, but you can read all the changes by looking at the info box at the top of the charts Top 100 / Hot 100 over the years.

                                          Here's the info box blurb on the Hot 100 chart for Oct-13-1958 (the last week of the Best Sellers chart):

                                          "These 100 sides are listed in order of their national POPULARITY, as determined by weekly local studies prepared for The Billboard in markets representing a cross-section of the United States. These studies take into consideration such factors as disk jockey plays, juke box activity, and record sales."

                                          Then the next week Oct-20-1958 when the Best Sellers chart was no more, the info box blurb on the Hot 100 gets changed to:

                                          "These 100 sides are listed in order of their national POPULARITY, as determined by weekly local studies prepared for The Billboard in markets representing a cross-section of the United States. These studies reflect sales registered for each disk up to press time."

                                          Fascinating, interesting...

                                          • So from July 1940 Was Billboard's 'Best Sellers In Stores' chart point based or actual sales ?

                                            • Per baukew's Billboard article link above, up thru June-17-1957 Billboard had been tabulating 'dealer opinion' for its Best Sellers chart. Sounds like ranked listings / chart points to me. Then they went with actual sales starting June-24-1957.

                                              Lemme look up Billboard July-27-1940. OK, this is what the Best Sellers chart says at the top:

                                              "This compilation is based upon reports from the following retail stores, of their 10 best selling records of the past week." Then they list about 60 actual record stores !!

                                              Then for July-1-1950:

                                              "Records listed are those selling best in the nation's top volume retail record stores. List is based upon The Billboard's weekly survey among the 1400 largest dealers, representing every important market area. Survey returns are weighted according to size of market area. Records listed numerically, according to greatest sales. The 'B' side of each record is also listed."

                                              So my interpretation for the Best Sellers chart is 'chart points' 1940 to June-17-1957; then actual sales after that...

                                              • It is still unclear to me whether Billboard asked the stores to simply rank their sales or specify the actual numbers sold. If it was the latter they would be in the strange situation of saying, in many cases, that one side of the record sold 'x' and the other side sold 'y'. Also they computed their year-end chart using cumulative points; if they had cumulative sales available for the sales section you would have expected those to be used.

                                                    All three charts are really quite close in the top eleven this week with at most any one of them just one position away from the others.
