  • The top 5 are in agreement all across the board, with not much difference between numbers 6-10.

    • 'Baby Jump' about to enter, which I preferred to 'In The Summertime' but now seems largely forgotten.

        If I recall, 'Baby Jump' entered the BMRB chart for a week then fell out (due to the postal strike, with the chart being reduced to a top 40, so it must have fallen below number 40), before re-entering.

        • That is right. It appears that BMRB were restricted to a Top 40 for 7 weeks, starting with w/e 6-Feb-71 when 'Baby Jump' had appeared at 32. Its disappearance this week suggests they were unreliable at the bottom end.

          • They apparently biked in data from key areas. I have no factual knowledge of the number of returns, but I would suggest that it was massively lower than before - maybe even as low as RR days. No album chart was compiled, which always had lower sales than singles, which leads me to believe they couldn’t get enough data to compile it accurately. On the grounds that something is sometimes better than nothing, we keep the BMRB through this period, but for albums they went back to Melody Maker and I would suggest that (or even NME - not fixed to just MM) would be better in this period - at least asa far as below Top 10 goes!

            Now including NME, Record Mirror and Melody Maker from the UK and some Billboard charts

            • So had MM changed over to phoning the shops by now?

              • Guys I am going away early tomorrow for a long weekend back Monday so won't be able to post charts although will still be able to access here on my tablet whilst away.
                So you don't miss your fix of daily charts though while I am away I am posting below all the remaining 'fun' UAC through to March 20th 1971. BMRB commenced normal service on the 27th so this part of the project ends on March 20th.

                On Monday or Tuesday though I will be returning to the original proper UAC project and will be giving you the charts from October 8th 1955 through to December 1959.

                So here are the remaining 'fun' charts for 1971

                          • Well done Brian, you’ve made the chart of charts not only for the complete sixties but also for the unreliable part of the seventies. I’m profoundly impressed. Can’t help but wonder how many understand the magnitude of your work and the influence it deserves futurely.

                            • Brian, a massive thanks for doing these charts. I've thoroughly enjoyed the 1969-1971 charts. I'd love to have seen an equivalent for the period mid 1977 to 1979 simply because there are a number of non-BMRB number 1s. In 1977 I used to buy Record Mirror, NME and Melody Maker and for a while compiled an averaged chart although there was no weighting involved. I remember there being a handful of number 1s that differed to the BMRB chart (if I recall 'Magic Fly' by Space was one such number 1). It wouldn't be possible anyway to do a similar weighted chart for the late 70s as I think Alan Smith wasn't 100% sure of how many shops were sending returns to the NME and MM other than they dropped considerably as the 70s progressed.

                              • Mega thanks Brian !! It's been a wild ride so far, now looking forward to the 50s !!

                                I too think it would be fab to see NME and MM vs. 'official' all the way thru mid 1988 when NME and MM ceased their own charts. Or even beyond that with MRIB vs. 'official'. It's all history worth studying. But not putting pressure on you Brian, others may feel the urge to jump in too. Wish I had more time, ugh. Rock on !!

                                  • It's off topic but I couldn't think of anywhere else to post this... in the past six weeks I have received a couple of emails sent to me by someone purporting to be Dave Taylor. They've both been spam (the message basically includes a link to a dodgy financial website) and it's obviously not him but it's weird. I'm not the only recipient of the emails, other recipients listed include the owner of the radio station he worked for and other people in the radio industry that Dave knew (including someone who has been a presenter at Classic FM, Capital FM and LBC). It's obvious Dave's email address has been compromised in some way but I find it strange that it's still active after all this time as I would have thought Yahoo email accounts would be locked out after a period of inactivity and his should have been inactive for over half a decade by now. The actual email address the email was sent from is definitely not Dave's but the names of the recipients are all people Dave would have had in his email address book. Very spooky!

                                    • Strangely enough I got one of those emails too Robbie a couple of months back. So yeah someone for their own suspicious ends is obviously using Dave's contact list.

                                      Thanks to all u guys above for those supportive comments. I greatly appreciate them and it makes the work on the project entirely worthwhile

                                        I compiled unweighted combined charts from '70 to '88 many years ago.

                                        The main snag was the high number of tied positions - inevitable if no weighting system used!

                                        In the 77-79 period, as well as 'Magic Fly', Rod Stewart's 'You're In My Heart', Blondie's 'Denis', Showaddywaddy's 'I Wonder Why', 'Pop Muzik' by M and 'Dance Away' by Roxy Music all made No.1....

                                          There's a great thread at Haven from a number of years ago where the possibility of these non-BMRB number 1 hits (as well as a number of others) being "lost" number 1s was discussed. 'Dance Away' must have been spectacularly unlucky when it was at number 2 on the BMRB chart for the three weeks 'Sunday Girl' by Blondie was at number 1 as it ended up one place higher than 'Sunday Girl' in the year end end chart. Sales between the two must have been so close for those three weeks. The thread is at https://fatherandy2.proboards.com/thread/68814 but you have to be a member to view it.

                                          I'm not sure what I did when records shared the same points. I must have had some sort of tiebreaker as I can't recall ever having tied positions. Unfortunately I threw away the charts pretty soon after I stopped compiling them which was when I stopped buying Melody Maker which was in either late 1977 or early 1978. I never cared much for the paper and only bought it for the charts page. Was it Melody Maker who used to publish the Record World US chart in 1977? I think NME published the Cashbox chart and of course Record Mirror published the Billboard chart.

                                          My Melody Maker buying days never got much beyond 1977 or early 1978. I bought the NME from around late 1976 to mid 1979 and Record Mirror from 1974 to 1985 including every issue from summer 1975 to October / November 1985. I hardly ever bought Sounds, just the odd issue every now and again. Like Melody Maker it never appealed to me but unlike Melody Maker the charts page was of no interest to me as I think it was just the BMRB top 30 which was already in Record Mirror. For some reason I recall the chart in Sounds being a week out of date but maybe I'm remembering that wrong.

                                            You can tiebreak by putting the charts in a simple order of preference - eg BMRB, MM, NME.

                                              That's probably what I did. I possibly used BMRB as the tie breaker as the other two charts did lag somewhat in 1977 with records being slower to enter, climb and fall.

                                                Yes, I used MRIB position as the tie breaker too - obviously made it harder for any non-official No.1 to reach the top....

                                                  • Away back at the start when I was planning the Ultimate Averaged Chart project that was my dilemma, how to re-create a credible average chart to at best greatly minimise ties, especially at the top end of the chart. The BBC method was credible but poorly compiled and treated all charts as equal yet in sample size were obviously not and ended in multiple ties as a result.

                                                    When I read Alan Smith's well researched article again, commenting on the sample sizes of stores the major music papers used, the idea of incorporating this information into an averaged chart as a further relevant criteria was developed.

                                                    Although the figures used for each paper are at best a guide it is the proportions between each that is the most important factor. The end result just tweaks close positions and ties providing a better differentiation in smoothing these out hence why the UAC is that bit more robust.

                                                    Please remember though that this applies only to Oct 1955 through early February 1969. The UAC in the BMRB era should not be considered in the same light as it is comparing points v sales charts. The main focus here was to provide a weekly comparison between these in BMRB, NME, MM, and because the averaging spreadsheet was used as the template for this it also provided that fun averaged result.
                                                    On Monday though back to the proper UAC in 1955.
