    I agree. Where it appears like the original charts listed a record incorrectly then it's definitely important for that to be acknowledged and corrected if appropriate.

        Kiki Dee 'Another Day Comes (Another Day Goes)' - previously NCH. Great song I first heard on Australian tv in March 1986, but it didn't chart here either.

        Charlie Sexton 'Beat's So Lonely' - US & Australian hit

        Marilyn Martin 'Night Moves' - US hit

          Wow. Just look at the tiny, tiny, margin of sales separating positions 8 to 11, 1417, 1416, 1413, 1412. There is close, and then there's that close

                Surprised at how well sales are holding up during Feb '86. That month was the 4th coldest month of the entire 20th century in the UK, but it never gets mentioned in extreme weather commentaries as it was just Siberian wind for the entire month, very little snow. I would have expected retail sales to take a hit.

                    ^ People were tougher back then Andy!!
                    Mind you it's easy for me to say. I never let braving adverse conditions to reach record stores worry me much, as I was still getting most of my chart stuff from recording off the Top 40. If ever I really wanted something bought, as I'd failed to capture a good enough rendition from the radio, didn't have it on a compilation album, or it just didn't get into the Top 40, I'd could always just ask my Mum to get it for me while she was out and about doing the weekly family shop in town, regardless of weather! I do remember it was flippin' chilly though - as you say it gets forgotten because there wasn't much snow which is much more disruptive and so gets more widely-reported. As indeed was the case a year hence in Jan '87, one of the worst winters I can recall. Let's see how panel sales fair during that episode in a few months' time.

                          Pleased to see Val Young there (a US Billboard #1 dance hit).

                            I think 131 is by Whistle, might be an import

                              131 is indeed credited as Unknown Artist on Discogs https://www.discogs.com/release/1153...us-Just-Buggin

                              Lana Pellay (also known as Alan) is the voice on Gary Clail's Human Nature


                              Mummy Calls with a song from The Lost Boys of course (later in 1987 when they picked it up).

                                This is the 12" https://www.discogs.com/release/1153...us-Just-Buggin

                                Quite a strange release!

                                      I wonder if we will see two separate listings for the Half Man Half Biscuit release. The EP was 12" only, catalogued TRUMP 1, whereas at the time I bought the 7", not an EP, catalogued as TRUM 1-7.

                                      At 129, Strange Cruise was a collaboration between Steve Strange, and Wendy Wu of The Photos. Sadly it's not very good.

                                        All will be revealed soon... and will also reveal an error in the OCC chart archive.
