When Record Retailer had no charts printed due to a strike from 06 February 1971 to 27 March 1971, towards the end of their books Guinness began to utilise Melody Maker’s Top 30 album charts to cover this originally ‘frozen’ period. The following albums therefore only charted in Melody Maker and not Record Retailer, but are now therefore listed in Guinness. Collin’s Hit Albums by Graham Betts acknowledges Melody Maker in his introduction, but does not use their charts either.

06/02/71 – 17 – 8 – Various Artists – Easy Listening (Polydor) (Charted in NME)
13/02/71 – 18 – 6 – Van Morrison – Van Morrison His Band & The Street Choir
13/02/71 – 29 – 1 – Grand Funk Railroad – Grand Funk Live
13/02/71 – 12 – 6 – Paul Kantner & Jefferson Airplane – Blows Against The Empire
20/02/71 – 25 – 2 – Eric Burdon & War – Blackman’s Burdon
20/02/71 – 27 – 2 – Grateful Dead – American Beauty
27/02/71 – 29 – 1 – Reggae Chartbusters: Volume 2 – Various Artists (Trojan)
06/03/71 – 14 – 4 – Taste – Live Taste (Charted in NME)
13/03/71 – 29 – 1 – Spirit – Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus
20/03/71 – 30 – 1 – Curtis Mayfield – Curtis
