    Whilst I enjoy looking at other charts I've never really rated Top Pops as a main player in the charts field. It only sampled around 12 stores and all W. H. Smith branches. As a result it often came up with even stranger chart movements than the often maligned RR chart. You have mentioned a few in the other thread relating to this. But like I say it is an interesting minor chart just the same for a chart freak like me lol.
    Here's an Alan Smith post from his TP/MN thread:
    .
    Yes! It was a National chart! It was compiled in 1968 by Colin Bostock Smith from about a Dozen branches of WH Smith & sons record section! By 1970 the Music Now chart as it was re-titled expanded to around 50 branches of `Smith's. Now compiled by Tony Norman and Karen De Groot! Not a major chart-but certainly of some interest! It is by far-the toughest chart to research due to the rarity of the papers!

    I think Alan also posted somewhere that the WHS&S stores being sampled were their 'largest' stores. I have no concept of how large WHS&S stores were. Were they huge, medium, or small?

    So yes, while TP/MN was not a major chart compared to the others of the day, at their peak they were sampling as many shops as the other charts were in the 50s, and RR up to 1964. One could argue at their peak they were relatively more important than RR was prior to 1964. I consider them worthy of study. The more the merrier !! Rock on...

      The record department of the old WH Smith's in Newcastle covered an entire floor. It's now a small rack of CDs near the counter...

      • The Ultimate Averaged Chart - Week Ending December 26th 1970

        The BRMB chart is from 2nd January 1971, there was no BRMB chart on the 26th December 1970

        Comment


        • There was a BMRB chart for w/e 26-Dec which was read out on Radio 1 that week. However, it was featured on POTP a week late, because on 27-Dec they featured the Top 50 of the year.

          Comment


          • Yes the 1970 Christmas chart was actually announced on Tuesday 22 December (but printed a week late in Music Week due to having no issue that week)

            Comment


            • Printed a week late in RM also because, although they had a w/e 26-Dec issue, presumably earlier Christmas deadlines meant that they needed it before 22-Dec.

              Comment


              • Incidentally, I believe that BMRB not having a 2-Jan-71 chart meant that they allowed NME to get the scoop on 'Grandad'.

                  Yeah Woz, the guys above are correct in that the 26th December chart was compiled and broadcast on Tuesday 22nd and it was the 2nd January chart which was repeated.

                        • This is where I have sympathy with Robin's criticisms of freezing, and feel that Grandad should be considered no. 1 for 2-Jan across the board.

                                    • More good new entries in this week's chart. George Harrison swept us into 1971 and swept Clive Dunn from the top spot, and not a moment too soon.
                                      Badfinger return with a much more mature but less catch new hit, and months after initial radio play and being a stateside hit Dawn finally make the UK chart with the Mexican sounding Candida.

                                      • As I was just at the right age for the song, I loved 'Rupert' by Jackie Lee. I still do!

                                        'The Man From Nazareth' by John Paul Joans was co-written by Godley, Creme and Stewart who would become three quarters of 10cc. They also were the musicians on the record and presumably produced it too. Joans was club comedian Reg Gray / Reginald John Davidge who was also the fourth co-writer of the song.

                                        • There's only two new hits for 1971 in that chart Tom and George. All the rest were out in 1970, some for quiet some time. Dawn was released in the UK at the same time it was hitting the USA. It hung around the bottom end of the 100 for ages. Jackie Lee was also out before Christmas, making the top 50 in the last chart of the year. Bad Finger took ages to take off. I suspect the record company in the end hyped it into the chart. Maybe also that applies to Dawn. Unless there is some reason for it, a record taking ages to make the chart and all of a sudden then does can be put down to a fiddle going off.
                                          Some interesting facts about the chart records. Amazing Grace was connected to the slavery abolition movement of the 18th Century. It's reported that most of the kids at this time however thought was about some girl called Grace, who was amazing!
                                          The Mixtures, an Australian act, got a boost to fame after the Australian radio stations band all major label acts for a time.
                                          Ray O'Sullivan was signed to the MAM label by Tom Jones manager, who renamed him Gilbert after the Opera guy!
                                          Candida comes from the Latin word for "beautiful" . The word can be found in a 16th Century account describing what Queen Elizabeth 1st looked like when she was about 60 years old. It was from a foreign visitor to London at that time. Contradicting historians who said it was all a "cult" about her beauty. This has lead to a stack of old and ugly looking women in the films of the Queen.
                                          George Harrison never made a penny from My Sweet Lord, with the tune being "He's So Fine" by the Chiffions. Of course it was a Phil Spector hit song. But Harrison was working with Spector at that time and had been on the last Beatles album. So it was no surprise it would sound like one of his records.
                                          The Weathermen were not a group at all, just Jonathan King under disguise. Not certain why he needed to do that back then. But of course he would now!

                                          • Jackie Lee was the same 'Jackie' who had a hit with White Horses in 1968.
