  • I am quite sure that EMI held on to all their Beatles sales.

      The reason I did not include all the other 'rogue' charts membrane is because they were all transient and as such would detract from year on year consistency. I agree about RR though, I included it because it was a recognised chart from 1960 although yes it was also the weakest and least credible and as such did not really bring much to the averaging process.

        I agree Brian, it was the superior version but EMI missed a trick and Marmalade stole the glory. Similarly I never forgave EMI for not releasing The Long And Winding Road here in 1970.

        • Greetings Pop Pickers !

          This is a first for you guys because just like at the end of 1967 MM and the BBC did not compile a chart for this week so The UAC has been compiled from NME and RR who did compile charts.

          Here is the next Ultimate Averaged Chart for Week Ending December 28th 1968.

            It wasn't Brian's idea it was mine. Based on the fact that as far as the rest of the world is concerned and due to the people who did the first British Hit Singles Book it has become the "official chart" of the 60's despite the fact it was the least accurate and used the smallest of samples. Had the NME increased the chart to a top a top 50, it's unlikely that the BHSB people would have switched from the NME top 30 to the RR. At least not until 1969 when an actual sales based chart was done. Had Melody Maker also not chopped its chart down, it might have replaced the NME and the RR charts in the book. Or if they had found the 31 to 50 part of the charts for 1967, as some people have indeed located some later years of it, then again the larger sample of the Melody Maker might have become "official".

            I did suggest to Brian that only the top ten of the chart (without RR) would do as the top ten is the part that really counts. Removing RR will remove it's slow nature and faults. And should give a better picture of the top selling records of the 60's.
            In anycase Brian has already done the charts with RR, so we would have both as a comparison.

Companies are obliged to keep several years of data for accounting, auditing and tax reasons, but as soon as those 6 years are up, out they go to the recycling centre. Reason: it costs money to store stuff which has no commercial value in warehouses. The same would apply to digital back-ups of similar vintage. Sorry!
              Lots of companies and institutions deposit records and documents in national and local archive institutions, costing them nothing. Some things like magazines and books have at least 3 statutory sites which they are required to be send a copy. Hence why places have copies of music magazines. If you are still in contact with any places you worked for, then suggest to them to deposit old records in there local archive office. It will cost them nothing and if there is any sensitive data, they can place an embargo as to when the public will be allowed to see it.
              Stuff can often be deposited from law firms after the collapse of say a record store. Indeed many law firms were fundamental in founding some of the archives and libraries. The big record companies also have their own archives. However it's not perfect and some record companies have thrown out master tapes of artists!
              There's tons of material out there. You only have to watch something like the Antiques Roadshow to see some ex employee of some firm that has rescued materials that went to the skip and is now worth a fortune. It's just finding where it's been placed! And if you can see it!

              • Before I post the first 6 charts from 1969 taking us to the end of this phase of the project indulge me again with my usual list of criminally ignored records from 1968. If we didn't have a top thirty accommodating below par ballads and some just awful records (Sue Nicholls springs to mind) there would have been space on the chart for these gems that missed out.

                Angel Pavement - Baby You've Got To Stay
                Dusty Springfield - I Will Come To You
                The Lemon Pipers - Rice Is Nice
                Madeline Bell - I'm Gonna Make You Love Me
                The Montanas - You've Got To Be Loved
                The 5th Dimension - Stoned Soul Picnic
                The Flowerpot Men - In A Moment Of Madness
                The Candy Choir - No Grey Skies
                Glen Campbell - By The Time I Get To Phoenix
                Long John Baldry - When The Sun Comes Shining Through
                Nirvana - Rainbow Chaser
                The Rascals - People Got To Be Free

                Just saying lol.

                • It's particularly extraordinary that such a classic, much covered song as "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" was never a hit in this country...

                  • Something that should have been recorded in 1968: Joe Cocker giving his agonised anxt treatment to 'Yummy Yummy Yummy'!

                      In a way it was:
                      Five weeks on the Breakers list from 27 Jan 1968, peaking in 2nd place
                      .

                        Joe's facial expressions and hand gestures as he sang had me totally hooked. Magical performer.

                          True, and both Marty Wilde and Georgie Fame also got the song into the breakers, the former at the same time as Glen. So sales splitting probably explains the failure of either version to chart properly.

                              Record Retailer seem to be very much ahead of the curve for the chart dated 04/01/69. A quicker number 1, higher placed climbers and lower placed fallers.

                              • Strangely though Robbie, Marmalade will fall back after one week on top and Lily The Pink will return to #1 on RR, while Marmalade will be #1 on NME and MM that week. RR defo got it wrong I think.

                                    True, and both Marty Wilde and Georgie Fame also got the song into the breakers, the former at the same time as Glen. So sales splitting probably explains the failure of either version to chart properly.
                                    I don't think the splitting is a good argument. In 1970 Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head gets split like mad, around five versions, but one of them does really well and three make the top 50.
                                    I would put it down to some bad charts. Or possibly some missing stores that would favour Glen. Record stores don't have the same people buying from them. Probably true with many stores and shops. You could go into one shop and it would sell Country music and another shop on the other side of the road, wouldn't have any Country records.

                                    Often a good indication of if the charts were playing up is the ownership on 45 Cat. Since they also included a value on rare records it eliminates such records as being "chart". I did a complete survey of all the top 50 records for a year showing the amount of owns of each hit. From this you could work out how much it would take to enter the top 50. And I was able to work out where a record could get to with the points it had. So to make the top 50 you would need at least 12 to 13 owns, by 20 you are up to 30 and to get to the top 75 and over. Though having said that some really big sellers had less than that.
                                    So on that would Glen miss out? No is the answer with 38 owns. Would put him no higher than 16. Marty Wilde, would though he has only 11.
                                    Fame's version was released later towards the end of May. At 18 owns it should have entered the 50, but no higher than 42.
                                    There's also a special issue dated to 1968 only featuring Fame and Simon and Garfunkel. That has 36 owns, but probably never qualified as a chart record.
                                    It's remarkable too that many records advertised in the music press at the time and given sparkling reviews on the new singles pages have ownerships of 0 to 3 on 45 Cat.
                                    Education for anyone aged 12 to 16 has made a mess of the world!

                                      • Mrs Robinson (EP) - Simon and Garfunkel
                                        Is this the first EP to make the RR singles chart?

                                        • No Brian, back at the end of 1967 The Beatles made the RR singles chart peaking at #2 with the Magical Mystery Tour Double EP. Somewhere along the way, obviously late in the decade they made a policy change. Odd, to do it then when EP's were in the twilight of their existence.

                                          • I always assumed that a few EPs began registering in the main RR Top 50 singles charts from December 1967 because they took the decision to discontinue the separate EP chart (the final edition was W/E 16 December). Rather than disallow EPs to feature at all, they conceded to permit them into the singles listing if their sales returns racked up enough points to make the cut, albeit that very few were selling sufficiently by then to outsell the average typical 45s. Only a major force such as The Beatles would still have the commercial might across all formats to achieve a notable chart placing with an EP, which of course they did with 'Magical Mystery Tour'.

                                            • Yeah Gambo that would actually explain it, the timing of the discontinuation of the EP chart. Imagine if that chart had continued for just a few months more then Magical Mystery Tour wouldn't have qualified for the singles chart.
