    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    'Here Comes Summer' enters in all charts except Disc, highest in RM. No surprise there. Although at the end of August it would be more apt to say 'There Goes Summer'!

    Good agreement among the music papers at the top end of the chart.

    As predicted RM is yet again ahead of the game with the #1 where the rest will follow.

    Now that I have had time today I have gone back and amended the charts both here and on the original spreadsheets where it said 'Letter' to 'Message'.
