    When you factor in Woolies sales all three Hump singles sell a million. One only 42 weeks in a run of over 50 has already cleared 2,685,000 sales.

    Yeah, definitely her song and her version was also the bigger seller of the two versions. 1967 was a very interesting year for music, although we were right in the midst of the Rock Era and 'The Summer Of Love' just around the corner ,it was also the year where ballads strongly held their own against this revolution. Incredibly, and I grit my teeth and roll my eyes as I say this, Engelbert Humperdinck managed to take all top three positions in the bestselling singles of the year, including two that sold over a million and the third over 750,000.

    Grrrrrrrrr !!!

    A massive new entry for Petula Clark. I much prefer Petula's version to the Harry Secombe version that for some reason seems to be the better remembered (at least to me). This one is more refined. I've only discovered though that Petula's version is the theme tune to a Charlie Chaplin written and produced film (A Countess From Hong Kong). And not only that, he also wrote the song too.

    The record had two Real Chart Runs:
    16 10 1966 Last Train To Clarksvillie / Take A Giant Step 38 x 5 wks
    15 01 1967 Last Train To Clarksville.... (re-entry) 22 x 10 wks

    I'm A Believer also has (I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone on the other side.
    In the case of the Monkees they would have both been double AA sides.

    True and just for interest there was no mining disaster in New York in 1941.

    The records are promo copies only given out to TV, Radio Stations and Shops, plus some DJ's.

    It almost made the Record Retailer top 50. It was in the Breakers Chart which the newspaper published, spending 3 weeks on the list and peaked at number 1 on the chart dated 27 October 1966.

    Yes, good point. The Bee Gees' upcoming debut hit "New York Mining Disaster 1941" was also inspired by the Aberfan tragedy.

    First screening of Top of the Pops on BBC television January 4th1964.
    Note the EPs and LP in the chart.

    and Matthew & Son rose from 21 to 5. Could it be a mix-up, they are also close alphabetically. But on the other hand, that would mean Morningtown Ride went 7 to 5, where in all other charts it fell one or two spots. Or maybe they did somehow mix-up the points, but only partially.

    On 23-Jan, looks like Disc made their own sloppy miscalculation by plunging Morningtown Ride down to 13.

    Yeah I saw that too Splodj. I actually watched both shows religiously every week. RSG was a bit more diverse which I loved, but then I loved the chart format on TOTP as well. I have to admit though I was totally captivated by Cathy McGowan 'The Queen Of The Mods' lol.

    Back then of course the first chance I had to hear what the weekly No 1 record was, was on TOTP. I'd be on the edge of the chair waiting for the show's iconic start 'Yes It's No 1 It's Top Of The Pops', as they played it in part as they showed you this week's top twenty.

    Sooooo looking forward to the RSG book tomorrow. It's not cheap at just under 28 quid, but I'm gonna get so lost and engrossed in it.

    I don't know if you saw the BBC4 documentary earlier this year (The Story Of Ready Steady Go!) but I thought it was interesting when the RSG producer said how impressed they were by the format of Top Of The Pops when it arrived and how she realised what a challenge it would be.

    There wasn't much Christmas cheer especially in Wales in 1966. Something to do with the fact a big slag heap had just wiped out an entire school of kids back in October.

    I like the Tom Jones single ( but then I've always been a Death Disc fan!)

    I think it's actually the first hit song I can remember people singing in the playground at school....

    Agree it's hardly seasonal though!
