    Thanks kjell, I too would like to think the UAC forms a bridge that links all important charts together to offer a more balanced averaged chart that supersedes any individual chart.

    If the likes are anything to go by there are at least 22 guys who regularly follow the charts that are being posted here and probably lots more who share a casual interest. That motivates me to ensure the UAC is accurately compiled, transparent, and regularly posted to satisfy that hunger that you and the other chart enthusiasts share with myself.

    There are so many, many, more younger chart enthusiasts on UK Mix who prefer to post and debate the charts and artists of today with the same interest, fascination, and enthusiasm as we do with the charts and artists of yesteryear. This diversity of musical interest and hunger for facts and statistics is what makes the UK Mix site special. It embraces the broad appreciation of the chart spectrum over the years offering a plethora of knowledge, opinion, and facts.

    Contributing to this 'college of musical knowledge' is a privilege I enjoy and although I give, I also take ,by gaining every day new facts and insights from the wealth of knowledge, experience, and facts offered by you regularly my collective UK Mix family.

    Keep reading, Keep commenting, Keep posting, but above all Keep Safe in these difficult times.

    Guys !

    I've just noticed that views to this thread have just gone over 100,000.

    I can't believe that posting old charts and an updated 'averaged chart' based on these would attract such interest.

    I don't quite know what the attraction is but something must be present to warrant such interest.

    A huge thanks to all of you who have 'liked' the thread (22 to date please feel free to 'like' if you haven't already done so) and faithfully followed it

    Brian

    Just put up the video of Donny Osmond's version of Young Love from 1973 on my blog site number ones. So far I have only done the video for Cliff Richard - Livin' Doll from the 1950's number ones. There's far less film footage where the act sings the same thing as the record for the 50's.

    Please note that up until now Johnnie Ray had been listed as a double side single but NME this week splits the sides in line with MM and RM so both sides now chart as new entries in their own right.

    Winifred Atwell getting into rock'n'roll, em, not really and totally not credible.

    Both versions of Young Love now in the top ten but Tab grabs the top spot this week.

    Tab Hunter quickly leaves Sonny James in the shadows as he soars from #11 to #2.
    The Vipers surrender to Lonnie as they dip back out of the Top 10 whilst he climbs further.
    Little Richard's Long Tall Sally finally takes off. It graced the chart for one week back in 1956 but this time it means business.
    Guy Mitchell's obsession with the 'blues' continues, last time he was singing them and this time he is knee deep in them.
    Tommy Steele not content with trying to upstage Guy last time tries again with his cover of Guy's cover of Marty Robbins' originals.

    Yeah Kitty Kallen's version was the first released and that was in October '56 followed by a whole string of others including Bing/Grace in November '56, so it wasn't even the first out of the box.

    The film 'High Society' was released in July 1956 so I wonder why 'True Love' wasn't issued earlier to coincide.

    Agreed Robbie. He was all over the 1956 chart but was swept aside after Don't Knock The Rock probably because so many other Rock'n'Roll artists came to prominence this year with new exciting sounds, eg, Little Richard who made his mark big time i n '57. Also this was the year when skiffle made a big impact too. Without a doubt after Elvis this was Lonnie's year with some stunning material for the time.

    Bill Haley's chart fortunes fell away quite quickly once 'Don't Knock The Rock' fell from the top 10. Indeed this was his last ever chart entry, re-issues of 'Rock Around The Clock' aside.

    It doesn't happen often but all 3 charts agree on the entire Top 5.
    Lonnie edges up a couple of places to #5 but The Vipers take a leap into the Top 10 hot on his heels.
    Elvis's Hound seems to have been around forever and actually moves back into the Top 10 again this week.
    Tab Hunter has a very high new entry this week but Sonny James is on his tail albeit a bit lower down.
    Bill Haley too has a high new entry but this will prove to be his last Top 10 record.

    Yesterday I finished compiling the UAC for 1957 and have moved on to start 1958. To return to the end of year mid-point charts for non compiled weeks I have just repeated this exercise for the last chart of 1957 where again MM and RM did not compile a chart and I'm actually more impressed with the outcome for 1957 than I was for 1956. The 'bridge' chart between both weeks for the missing week fits seamlessly into place and provides a realistic outcome for the UAC for that missing week. I'm impressed

    Lonnie Donegan is winning the battle of the 'Daddy-O's' by quite a margin.
    Joe Valino's version of 'Garden' surrenders and leaves the chart while Gary Miller and Dick James have to be content as 'also rans'.
    Pat Boone's easy listening assault on the chart continues. Not content with Friendly Persuasion going Top 3 Don't Forbid Me enters to eventually go Top 3 too.
    Ballads and novelty tunes though which up until now have held the dominant hand will this year surrender the crown to Rock'n'Roll and Skiffle as teenagers finally awaken to embrace new exciting music in all its forms.
