  • Irish Number One Albums 1990 to date

    A companion piece to the Irish Number One singles here

    Redoing these looking back on it from 2022, with all of the confirmed chart toppers since 1990.

    There were also album charts published in the Evening Herald in the 1960s and again when the new singles charts were published from 1975-1977, New Spotlight Magazine (60s & 70s alongside the accepted singles charts), Starlight (which followed on from Spotlight in the late 1970s). What look like the official album charts appeared again briefly in the Evening Herald in 1979/1980. The IFPI took over producing an "official" album chart, which was used in the Eurocharts and this started in at least 1984 and lasted up until 1992.

    All of the data from before 1990 is patchy so is generally ignored here until better records can be found. The count of number one hits in this thread only acknowledges those in the list from 1990 to date, but I will also list the few other IFPI number one albums (from 1984 to 1990) that I've seen in print separately.

    The dates varied over the tears but have been changed to Fridays for consistency here and to match what is currently listed on the IRMA website. The charts used for this list were published in the Evening Herald from 1990, The Sunday World from 1992, Aertel in the 1990s and IRMA and Chart-Track since the end of that decade.

    The sequence number (seq) I've added is the year that the album first reached No. 1 and it's sequence in that year. This makes it easier to change if, for instance, Tracy Chapman's self-titled album reached No. 1 in 1988 or 1989. well before it's appearance here in 1998 (which I suspect it did) to that earlier year sequence number and re-number the rest of the 1998 sequence. This will save having to re-sequence the entire list.

                                Great thread

                                Do you have any albums info pre-1992?

                                I'm interested in any Jackson info you have - Michael, Janet, Jermaine, Jackson 5/Jacksons, 3T. I have info from 2000 onwards, but nothing before that

                                  Completed 1996. The dates for 94 - 96 are the dates matching the Irishcharts website, i.e. the Thursday before the chart show was broadcast on the radio. The dates for 2000 on are taken from the chart-track website. The dates in between will need some work.

                                      For those who can see RTE TV there's a brand new series starting on RTE at 8:30 tomorrow evening (Sunday). 1 To Remember is Brian Kennedy's new 10 part show in which Brian and his guests perform songs which made no 1 in the Irish charts over the last 40 or so years! Each weeks show will include half a dozen songs and there will also be a Christmas Special.

                                        Unfortunately I don't get RTE in the UK.......

                                        A while ago on Sky (but it's gone now), there was a channel called TARA, broadcasting Irish programmes only. I think I saw one of the finals in which an Irish Eurovision entry was selected, and I definitely saw a marvellous series which I believe was called "Ireland's Greatest Hits" - a series of half-hours (less ads) in each of which the story of four massive Irish hits was told, with vintage footage and new interviews with the performers. It must have been no earlier than the late 90's, as I remember "Aon Focal Eile", which was in the recently-finished 1994-1996 thread, was one of the featured hits.

                                          Ireland's greatest hits wasn't bad at all!! Nice to remember it. I'd completely forgotten it.

                                          I wonder if all the songs requested have been decided on already on the Brian Kennedy show? Be interesting to watch just to see if they all did indeed reach number one, and what their chart source was. Is it too late to request "Moonlight Shadow"??

                                            The shows have already been recorded so we may just hope that Moonlight Shadow turns up!

                                            According to the show's main page on the RTE website:

                                            Members of the public will decide just what number one hits Brian – and his guests – will be singing. Members of the public voted in May for their favourite number one hits for each of the ten shows. A selection of the top songs, as voted by members of the public, will then be performed on ‘1 to Remember with Brian Kennedy.’

                                            The summer series will culminate in a Grand Finale in which the 10 most popular Irish Number One Hits from the entire series – voted upon by the public each week – will be sung in this one hour special.


                                            Then on the voting page it says

                                            Each week Brian Kennedy and his guests will perform a selection of hit songs, all of which were Irish Number Ones. At the end of each show you will have the opportunity to vote for your favourite song from that show. At the end of the series the winning song from each week will be revealed in the Grand Finale and viewers will have the opportunity to vote for their ultimate favourite Irish Number One from this list.

                                            How to Vote:
                                            You can vote for your favourite song towards the end of the show each Sunday night. To vote by text send the word SONG followed by the letter assigned to your chosen song to 53600. To vote by landline call the 1513 number associated with your chosen song.

                                            VOTING DOES NOT BEGIN UNTIL THE END OF THE SHOW ON SUNDAY JULY 23RD

                                              That would suggest to me that for the initial vote in May those voting may have been given a complete list of no 1s. Could it be possible that it was even published on the RTE website itself?

                                                Do you have more number one albums in 1996? I wonder if Celine Dion's Falling Into You reached number one in 1996?

                                                  It seems not - beatlened's posts appear to cover the whole of 1996, with the last number one album of 1995 remaining on top almost through to the end of March:-
