    It should be The Bee Gees - Gotta Get A Message To You

    Record Retailer ended it's EP chart that same week. This allowed the new Beatles double EP to enter the Record Retailer singles chart. The first EP to do so. The EP was released the week the final chart was published. I suspect EMI might have waited for them to close the chart down. It was clearly on the cards as it had remained static for the last few months with no records entering for a long time.

    Long John Baldry was featured every week on Top of The Pops for about four weeks solid. So no wonder it shot to the top!
    Still not one of the biggest sellers of the year. He ends the year on 828,000 copies, whereas The Foundations end the year on over one million sales. When they got to the top the record company took out full page adds in the Music Papers congratulating everyone for the record success.

    Yeah Brain, the BBC continued to be inconsistent on applying tiebreakers.

    For some reason the previous message appeared twice, so I'm editing this one to say that the differences from the BBC chart for the October 28th appear to be differences in points rather than tiebreakers etc.

    Looking at the differences from the BBC Chart for the 4th November, they are mainly due to the records being tied on points and the BBC 'promoting' the climber compared to the previous week. The exception is the Who which must have been a miscalculation (or bias?) as they have less points than Sandie Shaw.

    Shirley Bassey despite it being one of her most well known songs doesn't even go top ten on any chart. Thanks to Lou Grade, who refused to let her do Top of The Pops!

    What I like is the fact that the differences are just a place or two which evidences that the addition of store returns is just fine tuning the chart and ironing out ties rather than radically changing it.

    The number of differences clearly documents the need for this thread.

    And yes it is!!!
    Just Loving You was like one those people who call on you and then just hang around, ignoring hints to leave.

    Tony Blackburn's breakfast show followed the Radio London format whereby the playlist sequence was the same each day. Thereby hits (1-10, 11-20 and 21-30), new releases and oldies were played in the same spots each day. The first record was a 1-10 hit, the second record was a 11-20 hit etc.

    So in selecting records for the first day the Move record was a highly likely choice as the opener being the fastest riser in the Top 10. The Bees Gees as a riser in the 11-20 section was similarly a likely second record.

    (So many know the first record that the pub quiz question now tends to be 'What was the second record?')

    Blackburn recalls how someone came up to him and said "Your show is the same every day" and he replied "You are the only one to have noticed!" But I suspect there were quite a few of us who had also noticed.

    What is least known is the that the record jumped and was knackered on the first play of it!
    It depends when Tony did denie this. It's funny sometimes how people alter history to suit what is happening at the point they change their mind about events. All radio shows on the BBC had a producer and they had control of the playlist and what was in the show. Tony of course could say what he wanted within limits. But the BBC controlled what he played.
    If he retracted the statement years later it might be that other things came into play. Such as not upsetting fans of Engelbert, or even Engelbert himself.

    I think your theory may well be correct. It would have been the obvious thing to do opening the new station with the #1 record, but not Engelbert, as it didn't fit with the new stations ideology so the logical choice was the next best thing #2, The Move.

    Of course it would never be 'the nearest single to hand, the programme then as now would already be playlisted.
