    Yeah it's one of the standards that has stood the test of time.

    The Tony Bennet track was around the 100 for weeks. Even Disc's top 100. It even cropped up again in 1967! Being marketed again by the record company. The fact that it didn't get near to the top ten in the charts and spent less time in the Record Retailer chart, hides the fact that it was massive seller in the UK.

    Yeah thats true. It was just a case of forgetting to change that back to 19 from 15 once I had calculated the average so it doesn't alter the outcome of the chart, but I like complete accuracy so thanks for picking up on that Woz

    NME and Disc always seem to be ahead of the other two charts on New Entries, probably because of their policy of including advance orders and as mentioned above by Graham RR always seems to be the last chart that existing hits leave. No doubt about it as so many of you have pointed out before RR is by far the weakest chart.

    I did a little more digging and discovered that the Yardbirds AA was issued on 1st October and if you look at the other charts they have in for those two days of sales. But RR doesn't pick it up for the following week. However the 22 entry position is not for the week ending date, but Record Mirror's Thursday date of publication of the 14 October. I'm not certain what date RR came out. The same date is also given in publications of the Hit Singles books and is still used today on the Official Chart. This might fit in with the current dating system of charts, but this was a recent innovation, designed not to give only two days of sales for new entries. If the same system had been in place back in 1965 new hits would have entered the RR chart HIGHER than they do. Since they would have a full six days of sales (no Sunday selling back then).
    It's another bizarre oddity in Record Retailer life.

    I believe the only way you can look at how Record Retailer worked in practice is that it wasn't using all 85 shops to produce the chart. Alan Smith says that the chart was compiled by one man. And given that he had a day less to produce a chart than the other charts, had less time to do it in. To get around this problem he must have cut the number of shops he actually used to a VERY low level. Plus the postal system would also limit the number. The British Market Research Bureau had the same problem with the post in the 70's and onwards, cutting shop returns down. The less shops used would limit the sales level. It will show up with new hits especially. At that time records were issued on Friday, giving only two days of sales in the first week. However the stores can shift a lot on Saturday alone. If you take the Stones - Cloud record. It was issued on the 22 October. But the week ending date is misleading since it looks like the Stones had 8 days of sales, or at least seven! When in fact the sales period of the Chart for the week ending 30 October was actually the 18 to 23 October! The Stones track itself would have had a lot of orders meaning the record shops would have lots of copies to sell on the 22 and 23 October. The more shops you sample the more sales you will get. Cut down the number of shops and have more smaller stores taking part and you reduce the impact of new sellers. Many of the big stores that would have taken more orders and got the lion's share didn't take part and probably refused to do so in these charts.
    It's interesting to note that the Real Chart for the 24 October, covering the same seven days, has the Stones top on 159,000. And Ken on 145,000. A gap of only 14,000 copies.

    My conclusion is that Record Retailer was probably only using 25 stores to compile it's chart each week out of the 85, while the others were using 50+ depending on how many stores were sending in information.

    Here is a prime example of just how out of touch RR was with the other three charts. In order to ensure you guys always get at least one chart every day I work ahead of what I post. I'm currently on 19th February 1966 the infamous week RR denied the Rolling Stones the No 1 position with 19th Nervous Breakdown. Aside from that huge anomaly RR had 9, yes 9, records in their top thirty that were not placed on any of the other 3. A third of their chart. Each week each other chart will have a few, 3 maybe 4, different but here is RR with 9.
    Furthermore so many other records chart positions on RR were way outside the parameters of the other 3.
    Massive evidence their paltry store sample of 85 was insufficient.
    Strangely though, Disc with only a fraction more of store samples than RR at 100 managed to produce a much more consistent chart that was in step with the others week on week.

    I haven't studied it in detail Brian, but I have occasionally noticed NME with some 'odd man out' positions relative to the other charts. They did count pre-orders as sales for the first week, and I think Disc did that too, but that would only account for first week disparities. I'll look more closely in the upcoming charts...

    Right Graham. RR compiled a day later than the other charts, but according to Alan their dealers still sampled over the same period Monday thru Saturday. Could it have been that some of the RR dealers reported their results for a Saturday thru Friday period, giving them an extra day to get their dealer chart into RR on time, not telling RR what they were doing? That would explain things, say if a small number of dealers did that, maybe 10% or so?

    I sure wouldn't think RR would have accepted a too late dealer chart and used it for the following week, that would have thrown their results off even more, ha.

    From this list a rotating core of 75 to 85 shops would post in their top 50 sellers to “Record Retailer” who would pay part of the postal costs. This new system commenced at the start of 1964. Unfortunately it was still a chart based on a different day of compilation to it’s competitors (Tuesday as opposed to Monday for all others) and the chart still suffered from unusually low first week entries e.g. no Beatles single ever entered at no 1 in the “Record Retailer” compiled listings.

    These snippets might add some light onto things:
    1964 - Record Retailer increases its sample pool from 30 to 85 by using EMI and Decca's distribution lists. Melody Maker and NME are using around 150 and Disc is polling 100 outlets
    1965 - The NME chart is suspected of 'hyping' charts when a member of their staff is found to be involved in manipulations resulting in Bob Dylan recordings enter their chart at much higher ratings than others
    1967 - Saturday 26th August - The Disc and Music Echo ceases using its own charts and uses a chart combined with that of Melody Maker, using a sample pool of 280 outlets. NME are now using 200 and Record Retailer are still using 85.
