    • I've just noticed that for the chart dated 26/10/85 'Maggie' by Jim Davidson is listed twice. Both have the same catalogue number. It's listed twice on the chart that kobyhadrian has supplied.

        • Spectrum otherwise known as Mod Aid with two versions of a Small Faces song - "traditional" and "contemporary"

          https://www.discogs.com/artist/2270405-Spectrum-28

          That seems to be an early entry for the Aled Jones single!

          Beres Hammond with 2 singles on different labels the same week!

          • The wonderful 'Wendell Gee' giving REM their first Top 100 placing, I believe.

            Good week for records that would make the 1985 Festive Fifty with the delightful 'Wind Of Change' and definitive 'Cruisers Creek' making appearances

            Comment


            • The double listing of 'Maggie' by Jim Davidson in the chart for 26/10/85 isn't an error. While prepping the charts for next week I noticed that the single is once again listed twice in the chart for 02/11/85. It looks like a Gallup error. Had both chart entries been combined the record would have been at number 89 in the 26/10/85 chart.

              • So tfor he chart of 19th October, Jennifer Rush had the highest panel sales (10,846) and the biggest gap over the no.2 (7,555) for 1985 so far. Since its panel sales declined the following week, it seems unlikely it will beat it. Only time will tell if it keeps both of these 'records' to the end of the year.

                  • Sunday Bloody Sunday nearly making the 100 - looks like a European import?

                    The Housemartins incorrectly named The House Martins only on the label - not the sleeve https://www.discogs.com/master/29506...rtins-Flag-Day

                    A lot of newcomers charting in the bottom 100 - several acts i've never heard of. Here's Johnny, The Shine, Rin Tin Tin...

                      • 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' is most likely a European import. it seems to have been reissued in a number of European countries in 1985.

                        The House Martins (as spelt on the label) is most likely a misspelling by the record label or maybe even by the pressing plant.

                        • A new entry at 119, I suspected we would see "I Spy (For the DTI)" in Nov '85. Cover of the recent Untouchables FBI-related minor hit, (which was itself a cover), during "Euro Siege '85" which saw the Laser 558 ship MV Communicator accompanied by the DTI-commissioned ship Guardline Tracker, in an attempt to choke off supplies.

                          Later in Nov '85 the Laser ship limped into the River Stour in Essex and was seized by the authorities pending a deluge of litigation, but Laser were back out on the North Sea in '86.

                          • ^ Yes I spotted that! I remember 'The Winning Streak' very well - it seemed very slick and pseudo-American at the time; sharp double-breasted pastel suits, high-speed racing cars, very yuppie. But one suspects that it will have aged rather poorly being such a cliche of its own era. The main theme was clearly Miami Vice-inspired and was quite good although it was hardly in the league of J Hammer, and nowhere near as memorable a TV tune as 'Big Deal'. While on the subject of contemporary TV, I see Simon May slips back at 88 with the 'Howard's Way' theme. Now there was a cracking romp of a song if ever there was one - rather more substance than the show's plotlines and some of the acting, but it was enjoyable at the time.

                            Was that Patsy Kensit's group Eighth Wonder I saw making a modest debut the previous week? Blimey she can only have been about 16/17 when that was released (assuming she was with the group at that stage).

                            There's something strangely satisfying about seeing John Foxx chart adjacent to Fox The Fox at 172 and 173!

                                According to wiki she joined the band (then named 'Spice') in '83 at the age of 15.

                                • Right thanks Metalweb for doing that extra bit of research. Never heard of Spice! Think they must've been too obscure even to make these extended charts as I don't recall seeing the name.

                                  It's always interesting I think to find out about the misses that S-A-W produced before they started to turn out a solid string of sure-fire successes with more teen-orientated acts from about 1987 onwards. Okay they had their moments ahead of that with songs performed by Dead Or Alive and Princess but many of their earlier engagements missed the mark chartwise, and those artists are barely remembered now. Just another fascinating aspect of these Gallup threads - reminding us of the more obscure stuff including that which involved otherwise generally successful industry heavyweights.

                                    Seem to remember that Uriah Heep, who made these charts recently, also started off (in '69/'70) using the name 'Spice'...

                                    • Odd about that Jim Davidson single appearing twice. A possible reason might be a batch of sleeves or labels with a misprint of the cat. no? (I assume that the dealers manually typed the numbers into the dataport machine?) Or, come to think of it, let's say a record by Hippy and the Pottamuses had a cat. no. such as for example HIPP04 (that's zero four) and the font made it look like HIPPO4, and 15% of all the dealers just typed in HIPPO4 instead of HIPP04....? Mind you, the cat no in question is LAX4, so perhaps not quite so mistakeable?

                                        It's definitely a strange one as I also can't work out why it's listed twice. The single was only released on one format, a 7" vinyl single. Plus as you mention, the catalogue number is in an easy to read and type format.

                                        • OK, crazy idea (maybe), what if they had suspect sales for the record and had removed some of the sales but then they forgot to remove the original sales position to leave just the adjusted one?

                                          OK I know it seems unlikely they'd do it for several weeks... and since we know from a MW report that a similar record was removed for 2 weeks again this seems it is not likley to the case......
                                          Another option I guess would be white label (promo) or import copies though normally they'd have a different catalogue number....also seems unlikely that it would chart for 7 weeks before the latter 2 options appeared!

                                              It doesn't appear to have been released anywhere outside of the UK. The above chart is the last time it is listed twice though. Either Gallup combined sales or the second entry sold fewer copies in subsequent weeks than the #200 record

                                                Could the earlier Foster & Allen version of (sort of) the same song have re-entered and caused confusion somehow?

                                                  Good thinking. Perhaps there was some sort of mix-up.
