  • I am going to be busy over the weekend guys. I have got Diana Ross at the Ovo Hydro in Glasgow tomorrow night then off early on Saturday morning to London for the ABBA concert on Saturday afternoon and then Matthew Bourne's 'Carman' at The Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night. I won't be home till late Sunday night, so, tomorrow I will post the next three UAC so you don't miss out.

                  • Apart from NME putting Only Sixteen at number one later than the others a broad consensus has endured, but I believe there are about to be some disagreements at the top.

                    • Yes, there's a broad consensus at the top end of the charts. I'm assuming that this consensus is about to come to an end?

                      The UAC and the BBC chart are in almost complete agreement with only minor differences. Ricky Wilde wins out over Perry Como at #20 on the UAC thanks to Record Mirror.

                        • Hope you enjoyed your musical weekend, Brian!
                          Honeymoon Song is not a re-entry on the UAC (but is on the NME chart). It would've been at 31 on both previous UAC's it could've featured on.

                            I've changed that to NEW David.

                        • Duane Eddy and Connie Francis (Lipstick) are actually equal on 'points' (39 'points' so equal 9) for the BBC chart. Did they split them because Duane Eddy was climbing while Connie Francis was falling or did they just miscalculate?

                              I'd say miscalculate, cos if the BBC were trend tiebreaking at this stage they would have favoured Jack The Knife in the chart above. Interesting to see that Jack is climbing faster in NME than RM.

                              Is RM becoming slower in general? Lonnie enters highest in RM, but they have a few (e.g. China Tea, Forty Miles) falling more slowly.

                                Another possibility could be that a different person did it this week compared to last week. Though since there's an error in this week's too perhaps it is just a miscalculation! Lonely Boy should be at 5 (20) and Mona Lisa at 6 (23) on the BBC chart.

                                • Yip ! It's well evidenced by now the BBC chart was seriously flawed. It has taken until now with it coming under scrutiny to see just how many errors there were. BUT, the UAC has fixed that and is well placed to become the averaged chart of authority for that era.

                                    • Ha ! Jerry Keller steals Craig Douglas's crown by a narrow margin with the positions split evenly over the four charts. Only the store inputs separates them.

                                      Yet again RM is ahead of the pack with what will be a future #1, Cliff's Travellin' Light. #7 on RM and #19 on Disc with the other two papers falling in-between.

                                      Weird stuff too with Frank Sinatra's High Hopes, #10 in NME, low teens in RM and Disc, and nowhere in sight in MM.

                                      Lots of other disagreements too in the individual surveys. These charts displayed side by side are utterly fascinating because when presented in this way they openly display differences in weekly chart patterns that has gone unnoticed before now when only one was looked at as an individual chart away from the others.

                                      • Here comes summer - in the middle of autumn! The uniformity of the constituent charts is breaking down this week. NME gives the advantage to Jerry Keller on the UAC compared with POTP.

                                        I've just checked wikipedia and Jerry Keller is still with us. It was his 85th birthday on Monday.

                                          It is also possible that on the occasions Jacobs recorded POTP on Tuesday the BBC could have been hassling the compilers for charts before they were fully ready and been handed some that were changed subsequently.

                                          • It's very surprising that the BBC chart has the Battle of New Orleans at 20 since it is actually equal on points with the new entry Red River Rock and is going down! Perhaps instead of points they looked at the NME position to split them?

                                              * This week the split side disadvantaged the averaged chart position so an average was taken from the other three charts and awarded to NME.

                                              • A three way split on #1 this week. NME splitting Cliff is a joke as it gives an unfair chart position but DISC is way out of touch on so many positions this week. I believe the UAC given all circumstances got the #1 right.

                                                • Yes and NME is not only giving an unfairly low 8 chart position to Cliff but also an unfairly high position to those above it. Although we don't know what combined position 8 and 16 would have made.
