                • Wow, thanks so much. Manchester United Calypso? was that the first football song to chart? I guess the Melody Maker Singles Chart suffered the same fate as the Album Chart in July & August 1959 with the strike. Could you please post the first chart of 1960 as I don't think the dates on the original post in this thread match up. Once again, thanks very much.
                  Keep the fire burning like the first time feeling

                      Yes, but they did compile it. I have them in email and I will add to the database today or tomorrow and post. Its one of those things I haven't got round to doing..... You know, like sleeping and eating - the little things that just have to go.

                        • Hi and thanks to everyone for this wonderful thread!
                          I'm voting for 1970 and 1971, at least.If it's possible.
                          I think I've spotted an omission. 'Early In The Morning' by Vanity Fare is missing. It looks like chart runs of Peter Sarstedt's 'Frozen Orange Juice'
                          and of mentioned Vanity Fare's record are pasted together. Probably, 'Frozen Juice' finished with No.19 (26.07.1969) and Vanity Fare's 'Early In The Morning' started with No. 27 (02.08.1969).

                            • Thanks for posting all these. You shouldn`t however refer to an "official chart", before 11th Feb 69, because there wasn`t one, until the BBC join forces with the BRITISH MARKET RESEARCH BUREAU on that date. It was only the decision of the compilers of the Guiness books, to use the Record Retailer charts before that, and they were never excepted then. If you would like a complete set of the BBC chart before 1969, get in touch with me, and I will supply them, as featured on PICK OF THE POPS and TOP OF THE POPS. Cheers Dave.

                                • I have posted the full Top M.Maker 50s gleaned from "Music Businness Weekly" to Lonnie recently! The Colindale Library had some missing from Feb/March 71. But with help from Disc and M.Echo's brief run of the Top 50s (13 March to 24 April 71) Lonnie has all but two of the MM Top 50s Sept 69 to May 71. I posted a Lot of MM Charts circa 1970 to 77 to Davetaylor. Maybe Dave can post them here!

But with help from Disc and M.Echo's brief run of the Top 50s (13 March to 24 April 71) Lonnie has all but two of the MM Top 50s Sept 69 to May 71.

                                    I am in the process of adding these into my database and will then post the Full Top 50's here.

                                    • If anyone is wondering why there was no Number 39 listed on the final Melody Maker Top 50 (First run) on 25 March 1967. It is due to the MM detecting that a certain number of records had `unusual` sales patterns! There were three on that week that the MM felt were `suspect` "Trafalgar Square" (Good-Time Losers) "Just What You Want" (John's Children) and "Love Makes Sweet Music" (Soft Machine) It was decided to draw lots to eliminate one of the three from the chart of week 25 March 67. The Soft Machine were the `Lucky Winners!!?` The MM then decided to only publish a Top 30 from 1 April 1967. They did still compile a Top 50 from April 67 onwards to check for other cases of `Hype`. Only the top 30 would be published in the MM from 1 April 1967.

                                      • Hi, and thanks again for the complete MM pop charts from the 50s & 60s. Just checked the 1969 charts carefully being astonished missing Vanity Fair's Early In The Morning. I think Early In The Morning first charted 9 August at No. 15 (listed at this position by mistake is Peter Sarstedt's Frozen Orange Juice). So from this date Frozen Orange Juice must be replaced by Early In The Morning.

                                            Are these charts correct. It seems strange that 'Son of a Preacher Man' is climbing back up the charts again in the MM when not in any of the others.

                                            • Very observant David1956.

                                              The record entered should have been Soul Sister Brown Sugar by Sam and Dave rather than Dusty's classic.

                                              I hesitate to think if other mistakes exist, but feel free to find them if they do for the benefit of others!

                                              • Dave,
                                                only recently started to investigate the UK Chart History.
                                                As such, YES, I am interested in the complete set BBC charts pre-69.
                                                Please advise how to get access to that part of UK history.

                                                rgds,
                                                Arttrend

You shouldn`t however refer to an "official chart", before 11th Feb 69, because there wasn`t one, until the BBC join forces with the BRITISH MARKET RESEARCH BUREAU on that date. It was only the decision of the compilers of the Guiness books, to use the Record Retailer charts before that, and they were never excepted then. If you would like a complete set of the BBC chart before 1969, get in touch with me, and I will supply them, as featured on PICK OF THE POPS and TOP OF THE POPS. Cheers Dave.

                                                • I will be posting updated `Chart History` ASAP on `Chart Analysis`

                                                  • I recently got a 9th February 1963 edition of Melody Maker. Inside was an article-rebutting criticisms of MM chart by `Daily Express` newspaper! Part of the article stated that the MM chart was compiled from carefully logged sales from 245 retailers and verified by each shop manager. The MM chart itself `was` audited- the paper stated that Middlesex County Council provided a team of auditors for this purpose!

                                                    This new data is now in my most recent posting of "CHART HISTORY" article in CHART ANALYSIS forum! Alan.
