      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.

      I find it strange how the EP market suddenly declined around the mid 60s. At one time it was a lot more vibrant than the LP market, and with stronger sellers. Did the public really just lose interest overnight or did labels decide they wanted to phase them out in favour of the more profitable album?

      • Mr Tibbs you must carry on with this wonderful project. I can quite understand why you did not include the Music Echo charts to December ‘65 with their small samples (a decision echoed by the BBC), but it would have provided a good laugh with their position disparity of up 20-30 places on some records compared to all other papers.
        Can I take it that you will exclude Top Pops/Music Now charts from 1968 on the basis of small samples (but big shops?)?

          We discussed this on the P/TOTP thread and, like Graham, I think it should have been the Bee Gees and that this is one of the times when MM got it wrong.

          What cannot be disputed is that the Bee Gees were heading for number one, so it just a question of when they arrived. Also undisputed is that the 'Top Pops' chart had the Bee Gees at number one this week.

          Dave Taylor also has a couple of interesting comments about this week. First he says that RR originally had a tie between the Beach Boys and The Bee Gees. I find this difficult to believe because (if I understand the RR tiebreak procedure correctly) they would have broken the tie in favour of the Bee Gees.

          But the other thing Dave Taylor says is highly plausible. This is that NME incorrectly applied points to Tom Jones that should have gone to Tommy James. This looks likely because NME putting Tom Jones at number one looks out of kilter considering that the other charts put him at number 5. Dave says that if they had not made this mistake NME would also have put the Bee Gees at number one.

          I am not at all suggesting that we should trust this claim enough to change the NME positions, but it is a contributory factor in my personal resolution of the infamous 3-way tie.

            From what I gather the EP was not intended at the start to have more tracks on the same size of plastic as a single, but to have a full piece of classical music on one side. But they started to be marketed as "mini albums". However to get the tracks on meant a loss in quality. If you put an EP on a hi-fi system and afterwards put on a standard single. Then the single will blast you out! Being much louder than any EP. So the LP which could give the length and keep the quality of sound was much better than the EP. As stereo hi-fi systems grew more popular the pitfalls of the EP became more known and they lost ground. Many EP also became novelty records, or for films, opera and classical pieces. Plus children's TV shows for example: Thunderbirds, Capitan Scarlet and Stingray all had EP's with episodes on them.

            Even that Beatles EP was linked to the Magical Mystery Tour film and "fun" novelty tracks on them. I suspect the Beatles did it rather than spend a great deal of time in the studio doing a new album, since after Sargent Pepper they knew they couldn't just throw together a collection of tracks together and make an album that way. The critics would have had them for breakfast if they did that!

            If you were going to make serious money and the best quality music an LP became the way to do it. The EP was just a gimmick in that respect.

            • Thanks membrane for that encouragement and yes I will be sticking with this project that so many enjoy.
              I will not be including any of the smaller charts in the sample for any years you will be glad to know, and will continue to stick with the major charts only as the others are just transient for a short time and I want to keep consistency throughout.

              For the record, Herb Alpert will take top billing on August 31st. Even allowing for the Bee Gees to hold joint #1 on RR that week as Dave suggested, which has never been corroborated, it will still not give it sufficient points to overtake Herb.

              Yes, I too have heard of the alleged mix up at NME but we have what we have historically to go on and thus Herb is1, Bee Gees 2, and Beach Boys 3. Remember as things stood the Bee Gees were not factually at #1 on any of the three charts that week, Tom Jones was never in the running irregardless of a possible mix up, But the consolation is that the Bee Gees will go to #1 on Sept 7th.

              I'm working on September 1968 now so am only a few months away compilation wise from going back to do 1960 to 1963 and for the very first time will be including the RR and RM charts into the averaged figures as for a spell between 60 and 62 these were both omitted by the BBC so the averaged chart might reflect even more differences between it and the BBC chart.

              • The film of the Beatles singing "Hello, Goodbye" (coma correctly inserted between the two words), the one in the Sargent Pepper clothes, was banned from TOTP, not for the usual reasons, but because the Musician's Union wouldn't except it because they were miming on the film.
                Meanwhile Scott Walker's new single was banned after Radio Two listeners objected to it after a few plays on the radio. The BBC called it a "nasty song". It was a translation of a French song which contained the words "queers, brothels and virgins". Disc and Music Echo (9 Dec) reported that even the title was controversial. It should have been "Jacky". All the scheduled TV appearances of Scott singing the song were also pulled as a result. The ban (not a complete one) pushed the record into the top five.

                • The ban on miming had been in effect for some time. Earlier in the year Disc and Music Echo interviewed the director of the Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane videos, who complained that he had wanted the Beatles to mime the songs but had been told that if they did the videos could not be shown on TOTP.

                  Simon Dee was sacked from Radio 1 for playing Jackie on Midday Spin.

                          Since there were no charts at the time actually counting record sales this was either made up from points, or based on shipping figures. Including sales from 1968. It's highly unlikely the EP would have sold enough to make the top ten of the year in about 3 weeks! It wasn't even number one (officially).
                          It doesn't even make the top 100 of the year on the same chart.
                          You can see the full charts from 1967 and the best sellers over over 220 that sold 250K from Thursday night on my blog.

                          And there seem to be competing lists of even "official figures" as Splodj list is not the same.
                          However even my list is also based on sales inside the top 100 charts and takes no account of the sales outside them. Which were as high as 6K at times.

                          Based on Brian's 535 shops if they all sold 30 copies each of the number one that would by 16,050 sold. So 6,000 divided by 8,000 shops is actually zero copies sold by any shops. Well it's 0.75 of a copy, but I don't believe anyone bought three quarters of a record. But I could be wrong!!

                        The Biggest Chart Of The Time

                        Comment


                        • A question to anyone who was buying singles at the time: how much more expensive would the price of 'Magical Mystery Tour' EP have been compared to the price of a standard single?

                          It's also interesting to see how much better the EP is performing on the Record Retailer chart when compared to the other two charts.

                          • To Graham76man, how come you can comment but I can't? That facility is turned off for me.

                            It depends when the top selling lists end - a cut-off date of 31st December or whether sales are included for the following year as well. It then becomes a list of the best-selling records issued in a given year. That could explain the difference in these lists. Some of course were points based.

                            As for MMT EP - By the date of release, it had advance orders of 400,000 and 600,000 had been shipped by mid-January 1968. [see The Long And Winding Road book]. [The Rock Lists Album] top 100 of the sixties had the EP at number 50. So final sales could be around 750,000 by 1993.

                              I had the EP clocking up sales of 379K, but there was a sales reduction the week before Christmas overall. Could have been a weather issue affecting sales, or something else.
                              Point based best seller lists have the problem of single sales overall sales. The points for a number one remain the same. The sales of records do not stay the same. You can sell 600K one week then next week 100K.
                              Incidentally Hello, Goodbye I believe suffered from poor distribution. EMI couldn't get over 300K to the shops after the second week at the top. They were only managing three quarters of it.

                          • Singles were 6 shillings and 8 old pence (0.33) while the EP was 19 shilling and 6 old pence (0.98). The EP was that price because it included a 32 page book and 4 pages of lyrics. A normal EP was 10 shillings and 6 old pence (0.53).

                            The imported MMT LP was 47 shillings and 6 old pence (2.38).

                            • Yes I think the 'Top Ten of Music (1993)' is based on the total sales of records released in 1967, whereas my list is sales within 1967. They are compatible with each other, just that the former has Hello Goodbye and Magical Mystery Tour appearing - caused by the significant sales of both after December 1967.

                                • What is the rationale behind only moderators being allowed to comment? Are their comments deemed to be more worthy, or are they supposed to confine their comments strictly to matters of moderation?

                                    It's not a worthy thing - it allows us to amend posts and post reasons why. Comments sort of can get out of hand if you want to comment on the comment I'm making on a post (You can see the coding issues this could cause). I think there was a post about it in the Front Desk but can't recall....

                                • I find The Top Ten Of Music really useful and lots of its bestseller lists credible, however, some of its lists do seem to incorporate sales in the top ten split between the two years, and others don't. A few records listed in the top ten in a few lists do raise my eyebrows as well, as do some of the omissions.

                                  I honestly believe that ANY list of bestselling singles of the fifties, sixties and early seventies is highly suspect as accurate sales data is notably sketchy at best for many records.

                                    MM did not compile a chart for this week and neither did the BBC, so the chart this week is based on NME and RR.

                                    • Before I continue into 1968 here is my usual end of year list of non charting injustices, the records which were criminally ignored in 1967 and should (in my humble opinion) have charted here in the UK.

                                      Buckinghams - Kind Of A Drag
                                      Doors - Light My Fire
                                      Ed Ames - My Cup Runneth Over
                                      Lulu - Best Of Both Worlds and To Sir With Love (should have been singles here too)
                                      P.P. Arnold - The Time Has Come (how the he** did this manage to miss out)
                                      Peter Paul and Mary - I Dig Rock And Roll Music
                                      Spanky and Our Gang - Sunday Will Never Be The Same
                                      Union Gap - Woman Woman

                                      Ah well ! 1968 next.
