  • But even if Colin had extended further it would still not be a like for like comparison with NME. Theirs was a sales chart Colin's was a chart of what shops were ordering and not necessarily selling. It's a bit like comparing the BMRB chart based on actual sales with the store returns from NME and MM come 1969. We identified that as an 'oranges and lemons' scenario when I did the 'fun' UAC for the early BMRB era.

    For the forties into the mid fifties I think the Sheet Music Chart was a better indicator of actual popularity and certainly more accurately compiled.

    Anyway here's the UAC for November 17th 1956.

      Colin was a bit more vocal on the NME chart - made up by the office girls was his thoughts!

      • I’ve checked Colin’s book. His associate Steve Waters that got it published thanks the OCC for their encouragement, support and stamp of approval, so we can only imagine what eventually may have come in return.

        • While the OCC may have given Colin's book encouragement, support, and stamp of approval, they nonetheless have not recognized his work as 'official'.

          Even if Colin's charts reflected records ordered, and thus weren't exact week to week, I would still think they would be more meaningful than less meaningful. Shops would have to keep re-ordering hit records as the public demanded. Thus the period of rising sales after release date would be more meaningful chart wise than the period of declining sales. When it's all you've got, it's all you've got.

          I do wonder how meaningful it would be to average Colin's record charts with the sheet music charts?

            I think that would be very problematic indeed. For one thing the sheet music only has one title, but records in shops have many artists covering the same title. They even have two SM titles on each side. Some artist even have different SM titles on both sides, to each other.
            The next problem you hit is the late arrival mostly in record shops. There's some titles in the SM charts that Colin never has an entry for. Or it arrives long after the SM chart has lost it. Sometimes I think Colin missed some records, especially Hoagy Carmichael - My Resistance Is Low! The title was big in the SM chart and is very well known tune. And I have noted that orders have dried up when that artist was selling like hot cakes!
            Then there are a few records that never made the SM charts. The best examples being The Coronation Scot. And The Dick Barton Theme.
            A few orchestras might be interested in the sheet music for them, but not the singalong piano players!
            And the biggest issue would be Christmas tunes. Colin's chart fills up with them at the expense of all the sheet music songs. But as soon as the holiday is over, every Christmas tune vanishes (just like the iTunes downloads).

            Education for anyone aged 12 to 16 has made a mess of the world!

            • I really, really like Colin's book as a reference guide. It makes a valuable contribution as to what record shops were ordering but not as a chart book to be taken too seriously. If it was a truly valid representation of what was selling over the counter as opposed to orders the OCC would have possibly accepted it as official for the period and they didn't so despite endorsement they didn't embrace it totally.

              My main problem with Colin's book is this. If you compare the Sheet Music Chart with the early years of the NME chart both were similar in the records/songs that made both charts, albeit in differing positions. This shows a comparable consistency shared by both in what was popular. Both listed almost the same songs/records.
              But if you compare the Sheet Music Chart with Colin's charts the difference is night and day. Much less similarity between both.

              • You are quite right there, though as we have discussed, he either leaves out the side which will have the SM title - on double A sides - or get the wrong side completely. Thus making them less like the SM charts, when in fact there are a few in the survey that do show up. Then again it could have been Steve Waters who got some of the titles wrongs. There are some mistakes in the book itself.
                As with many charts you would love to see the raw data from what he compiled each top 30. For example what were the order levels for a record at 30 and what were the amount for number one hits. The variations between the years. And the most orders for a record.
                But even the comparison between the first NME charts and the last few of Colin's book is so out of step. His last chart, cuts off just before the new records would come out and based on the trends you would have got about 9 to 10 new entries. But following the NME charts till the end of the year you wouldn't get that amount in the charts for the rest of the year, never mind a few weeks! I reckon that the orders even for Here In My Heart - NME's number one for the rest of the year! Would have either stopped and thus would have fallen out of Colin's chart. It was going down already in the last chart.

                  • 'Rock with the caveman' the first British attempt at a Rock & Roll record to make the charts. Co-written by Mike Pratt who later played the non-deceased partner of 'Randall and Hopkirk (deceased)'.

                    • 'Attempt' is a good description for Tommy Steele's first three chart records, the one above and two more poor covers to follow, but then he settles into a more comfortable groove later in 1957.

                      • I think though that’s always the issue when a new format comes out and people start to try and copy or imitate it. Takes a while to work and has to be the right type of performer to fit that profile.

                        • 1957 will shake off the cobwebs of 1956. Things get much more interesting as Skiffle, Elvis, Rock'n'Roll and even some Doo Wop take hold of the chart and give it a good shake.

                              I'm afraid that doesn't work at all. The last two charts he posts are the first two of the month. If you look at the previous two weeks of the last month, the first has 9 new hits and the second 5 new hits. These would correspond with the new records being released at the first and second week as was common.
                              If the two missing weeks had been the end of the month a simple shuffling of the records would have been fine. But the likelihood is that about 15 records were new in those two weeks.
                              To get a better picture you would need to have a list of the records issued in November 1952, which is around 87 on the 45 Worlds site, but they are not always very good at dating records. And often I was using Colin's book to correct and add the dates to some there. But you can check. With the link below: PS if you haven't subscribed you will only see 50!

                                • Here comes Guy Mitchell a high new entry at #13, not been on any chart since 1954, and what a comeback with his biggest ever hit and more to follow.
                                  Frankie Vaughan knocks on the 'door' of #1 but it will remain closed to him. His Green Door much the inferior version to Jim Lowe's original.
                                  The Platters' My Prayer, a stunning record by the premier vocal group of the fifties.
                                  Elvis' momentum is gathering pace.
                                  Eddie Fisher doesn't know it yet but this is his last UK hit, but he was indisputably one of the premier male vocalists of the decade.

                                  • What was the reason for the resurgence in Guy Mitchell's fortunes? I recognise a number of the songs in this chart due to my mother having bought the single. She has a few Guy Mitchell singles along with a hits LP and they are all from this period.

                                    This album was never off the turntable even in the 1970s! https://www.discogs.com/release/1989...owcase-Of-Hits

                                    • What a coincidence Robbie as my mother had that album as well

                                      Just as 'the rock era' was taking off for some reason back came a whole lot of artists from the 'crooner' era to upset the apple cart. Doris Day, Anne Shelton (from even further back), Frankie Laine, Johnnie Ray and Guy Mitchell all blocking out the #1 position from summer '56 into 1957.

                                      • I think both yourself Robbie and Mr Tibbs have answered the question of why Guy Mitchell was popular. Your mother's fancied him!
                                        Plus of course he was "singing the blues", which was popular with many singers and the youth at that time.
                                        Education for anyone aged 12 to 16 has made a mess of the world!

                                        • Since Don't Be Cruel is the B-side to Hound Dog and hasn't featured at all on the NME chart, shouldn't it be getting the average of 17 as an NME position on the 8/12/1956 chart? Difficult to judge for the previous weeks, but this time it is on both MM and RM...
                                          I know NME did feature both Blue Moon and I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine on the 24th November chart just to confuse matters.......

                                          • I'll take a look at this tomorrow brain. I see where you are coming from but want to review this in comparison to how I considered all other similar situations before I jump and correct. My head hurts working with this era with ever changing treatment of split sides over all three papers. There is no consistency. Sometimes a paper combines the sides then the next week splits them while another paper would do the very opposite. All three papers were guilty of this and Disc is yet to come. Keeping up with it is a nightmare. It's an ever changing landscape.

                                            I genuinely do my best working with this but apologise if I slipped up with the above one. I will do a check tomorrow as I'm out today and correct if so. Thanks though for raising the valid point for review.

                                            • Since this is the chart of charts it’s what the combination of them says that is the logical way of doing it, and I fully support your method Brian. If you should have added views in addition you would be likely to run into incalculable problems.

                                              • It is difficult to judge the double-sided songs especially when the charts are not consistent from week to week as we saw with the Goons recently. Since the NME is a top 30 and the others a top 20, it does seem unlikely that a track would be on the shorter charts, but not the longer. Though perhaps that it is not a correct assumption. We do know that songs can appear on the MM and RM chart without appearing on the NME on a week to week basis (for example on the first chart with a top 30, Michael Holliday - Nothin' to Do was re-entering the UAC at 22 with MM and RM positions but not NME, and Pat Boone - I'll be Home the following week though they do both appear on NME in other weeks).
                                                I looked back over the previous UAC 's and the only time a song is consistently on both MM and RM and not NME is if both sides are charting and NME has combined (or its the week before it charts on NME or has already fallen off the NME chart). When the B-side gets popular sometime after the A-side has charted it is difficult to judge, especially when the charts only list one side.....

                                                I know it can be very difficult to judge when to compensate and I don't envy you at all for trying to work it out. I do of course greatly appreciate that you are attempting to create an ultimate chart for the 50s with the limitations and confounding factors that are present in using 50-60 year old incomplete data!

                                                  Thanks again brain for raising this important point for debate. I've taken a look back like I said with previous charts and note I have been consistent on this point throughout where a split side is on two charts and not the third.

                                                  The reason being where a record has split sides and both chart, each has to be considered independently on its own merit. In your case above NME don't list Hound and Cruel as a double sided single like they normally do most times, they just list Hound. So Cruel has to be judged on its own merit just like any other record missing from an individual chart. Cruel charted in RM and MM only so only their points qualify for consideration in this case so the above chart is correct.

                                                  I hope this clarifies how such cases are fairly considered. Phew ! I need an Aspirin
