  • Ah, so that explains the missing #39 from the 25.03.67 MM chart! It wasn't John's Children, they were still in there at #35, must have been Soft Machine, they were #43 the previous week but then disappeared. I did my usual thing of guessing the missing position based on the highest placed single the previous week which had dropped out ('Let Me Cry On Your Shoulder' by Ken Dodd), but I suppose what I'll do now is move everyone from 40 to 50 up a place and put Ken Dodd at #50.

    • Btw Lonnie, I'm really sorry about what happened yesterday, it was a systems failure of the blonde variety (even though I'm not blonde) leading to extreme panic, but everything's fine now.

        • I've posted these to Lonnie! But for all to see; these are the ommissions (All No10's) in the DISC Album chart!
          14 May 1966. No10 "Mantovani Magic" (Henry Mancini) last week No9.

          23 July 1966. No10 "Cilla Sings A Rainbow" (Cilla Black) Last week No9.

          30 July 1966. No10 "Soul Album" New Entry.

          6 May 1967. "Matthew and Son" (Cat Stevens) New Entry. Hope all is well now! Now if Lonnie or someone, can list me all the `anomalies` regarding singles positions in DISC charts-I will check my A3 originals and try to sort out as many as possible!

            Thanks for these. At this point the only question seems to be

            I'm also wondering if The Moody Blues and The Yardbirds should be tied at #45 on 05.11.66, considering the Disc charts don't usually allow ties.
            I can't quite make it out from the photocopy, so I made then tied positions. It actually looks like it might be tied, but I'm not sure. Any help, greatly appreciated.

            • Lonnie! I checked my Charts on Memory Stick! Afraid that weeks scan is rather blurred -hence the unclear No45/6 positions! I will have to dig out the A3 originals again! I won't be around till Thursday morning! So will clarify then! If I remember DISC didn't have tied positions in the 60's (As with Record Retailer, they used a `Count-back` system!) Be back with the resolution Thursday Morn!

              • Right! Have checked original charts! On the 5.11.66 chart Moody Blues are No45. And Yardbirds No46! Hope that clears it up!

                • In July 1963 on "Disc" chart appeared a Beatles' EP "Beatles Number 1". It peaked at #3 on 10.08.'63. At that time, only the first Beatles' UK EP "Twist And Shout" was available. (The second one - "The Beatles' Hits"(issued on 06 September 1963); the third-"The Beatles (No.1)" (01.11.'63)).
                  I don't see any other solution than that it, actually, was "Twist And Shout"(EP) on the chart in summer of 1963. Why "Disc" used the different title is not known to me.

                  • Because they make mistakes! I'll dig out my old DISC charts for August 63 and see what it says!

                      • Hi, just been going through some of the early charts. Firstly, onchart of 8th August 1959 positions 17,19 & 20 are missing. Secondly, 16th January 1960 & 30th January 1960 both have new entries by Little Tony, Ton Good & Too Good. Same song I think. BTW, can you post or pm the Record Mirror singles chart up to the time they corresponded to Record Retailer Charts if you have them. Looking back at all these charts is great, it's so nice to see so many people interested in the charts. Keep up the brill work.
                        Keep the fire burning like the first time feeling

                        • Sorry about that. At the time, In didn't have the missing strike charts. Now I do :-), thanks to Alan Smith.

                          Here they are, plus a few weeks around them. I might post the Record Mirror ones, but that would be after the Albums are finished.

                          • Great to see these album charts, despite their brief run. I have spotted a few errors whilst going through. For example, how did Fresh Cream by Cream chart twice on 21 January 1967 chart at positions 6 and 8. I think number 8 was occupied by another album but which one. Also on 21 May 1966, the previous weeks positon of Beatles 'Rubber Soul' was 3 and not 7. On 28 May 1966, Mantovani re-entered the chart as week 3 and not week 2. Similarly on 18 June 1966, Mantovani re-entered as week 4 and not 3. On 23rd July 1966, Cilla Black previous week position should be 10. On 30 July 1966, Soul Album is actually by Otis Redding and not Various. On 24 September 1966, Herb Alpert album was a re-entry and wk 3 on the chart therefore. Similarly on 1st October and 8th October as week 4 and 5 not 2 and 3! Again on 22nd, 29th October and 5th November should be weeks 6, 7 and 8 and not 4, 5 and 6! Again on 12th November to 10 December 1966 inclusive as weeks 9 to 13. On 17 December 1966, Geno Washington album is actually 'Hand Clappin' Foot Stompin'' which indeed was a Live Album. On 24th and 31st December 1966, Mrs. Mills album is titled 'Come To My Party'. From 14th January 1967 to 25th March 1967 the Geno Washington album was firstly a re-entry and week numbers are incorrect by a week. On 4th and 11th March 1967, Herb Alpert album should have 14 and 15 weeks. On 6th May 1967, Cat Stevens album is a re-entry and should 2 weeks. Similary on 20th May, re-entry and 3 weeks. From 10th June to 29 July 1967, Engelbert Humperdinck album should be re-entry a week added in each case. I am not picking fault with this chart data, as it is brilliant. If you can come back with the answer to that chart entry on 21st January regarding Cream being twice on this chart, I can e-mail you a document I have just been working on listing all chart runs and acts from these. Many thanks.
