@Borobear, Gore101

The National Disco Action Top 40 chart for Dec. 23, 1978 posted by Borobear is INCORRECT. I went back to my original Billboard collection and did a comparison.

The correct chart, as published in Billboard, is (diffences in bold):

TW LW Title
1 1 CHIC - Le Freak/I Want Your Love/Chic Cheer
2 3 PEACHES & HERB - Shake Your Groove Thing
3 2 VILLAGE PEOPLE - Cruisin' (All Cuts)
4 4 EDWIN STARR - Contact
5 5 THE RAES - A Little Lovin' (Keeps The Doctor Away)
6 12 VOYAGE - Fly Away (All Cuts)
7 7 CERRONE - Je Suis Music/Look For Love
8 16 GLORIA GAYNOR - I Will Survive/Substitute
9 11 SARAH DASH - Sinner Man
10 10 ALICIA BRIDGES - I Love The Nightlife (Disco Round)
11 9 MELBA MOORE - You Stepped Into My Life
12 14 BIONIC BOOGIE - Hot Butterfly (All Cuts)
13 13 BETTYE LaVETTE - Doin' The Best I Can (Remix)
14 6 JAMES WELLS - My Claim To Fame/True Love Is My Destiny
15 17 FIRST CHOICE - Hold Your Horses
16 18 AMANT - If There's Love
17 8 DONNA SUMMER - McArthur Park Suite
18 20 CHERYL LYNN - Got To Be Real
19 21 LORRAINE JOHNSON - Feed The Flame/Learning To Dance All Over Again
20 19 CHANSON - Don’t Hold Back/I Can Tell
21 23 THE THREE DEGREES - Giving Up, Giving In/The Runner
22 15 TASHA THOMAS - Shoot Me (With Your Love)
23 24 GENE CHANDLER - Get Down
24 26 THP #2 - Tender Is The Night (All Cuts)
25 25 DAN HARTMAN - Countdown/This Is It/Instant Replay
26 22 JOHN DAVIS & THE MONSTER ORCHESTRA - Ain't That Enough For You
27 30 PAM TODD & THE GOLD BULLION BAND - Baise Moi (Kiss Me)
28 28 MIDNIGHT RHYTHM - Workin' & Slavin' (I Need Love)
29 36 DOLLY PARTON - Baby I'm Burnin'
30 32 CHAKA KHAN - I'm Every Woman
31 34 PARADISE - Dance/Poinciana
32 33 KAREN YOUNG - Bring On The Boys/Baby You Ain't Nothin' Without Me
33 35 BONNIE POINTER - Free Me From My Freedom
34 40 ARPEGGIO - Let The Music Play (All Cuts)
35 38 ALEC COSTADINOS - The Hunchback Of Notre Dame
36 37 CHARO - Ole, Ole
37 -- DIANA ROSS - Livin' Lovin' Givin'/What You Gave Me
38 39 BARRY WHITE - Your Sweetness Is My Weakness
39 -- GONZALEZ - Haven't Stop Dancing Yet
40 27 FEVER - Standing In The Shadows Of Love

I expect some educated guessing was done for the lower positions of the chart that Borobear posted, but not fully correct.

I will try and upload a picture of the complete page 70 of Billboard later this weekend.

Please share complete Disco archive!

Apologies for that. I don't know what happened there. I got the 1970's charts from various sources and normally note that a chart place was unknown or was a (in this case a poor) educated guess.

Thank you very much for pointing this out and providing the correct chart.

I would also be very interested in this archive!

I think we all would be interested.

So add me to the list of those who would like to see it :)

Fairly sure nobody has this but I thought I'd ask anyway....

I'm looking for scans of the Country andR&B singles charts from billboard for August to November 20 1961. None of the sources I can find have them, including the billboard Google scans or the resources here.

Any ideas?

I have them from the Digital libraries. We can exchange charts if someone wants a chart that is not available anywhere. Right now I have the complete Billboard scanned charts from the beginning (in high resolution).

For instance, I have the first Hot 100 chart which is not available on the American Radio Site (the issue is there, but the chart is missing). Also the Billboard charts from 1934 to 1942 etc.

You might interested in Variety weekly Top 50 Box Office charts from the 1960s, 1970s etc. I got them. I know that many people are looking for them. Also the annual issues with the Year-end Top 200 Box office charts (with grosses) and the old film grosses that are not available on the American B.O. sites. Most of them have film grosses only from 1980 to the present (with limited data prior to 1980).

The complete Cash Box issues are available on the Internet archive now. That means that my books with the Cash Box charts will be available for free after the 1st of July 2017. There's no point to continue to sell them, right?

Eventually, I will do the same for the Billboard chart book collections. The British chart scanned pages are a different matter.

So if you are looking for a rare scanned page from any magazine just PM me. We can exchange scans. I'm planning to do a digital museum of magazines. I will upload many magazines, not just for music and films. For instance, I have the complete Playboy issues from 1953 to the present in high resolution, many old Rolling Stone issues (from 1967) and the complete DC and Marvel comics from 1938 and 1961 respectively (comics are in .cbr or .cbz format, not in PDF).

These are exciting times for us, the book and magazine freaks! :)

Hi David!

They aren't!!!

From that issues, I need just the top 5 breakouts for dance club and dance single sales, at that time, they were printed some pages before the Dance Club and Dance Single Sales, on dance section of the mag....

The issue from 15/may/1999 are missing some pages, from 27 to 29, the breakouts were printed in some of them pages...

The issue from 02/dec./2000 are missing pages 39 and 40, where the breakouts were printed....

Thanks!

Click on the "year" header above the weekly issue lists. The charts are in a separate file. The person I acquired the 1980 to 2010 issues from had kept the charts separately and did not want to give me the files, so I scanned them by hand at his home. At some point, I will find a volunteer who will put the pages back into the individual magazines to make them complete!

Oh England, My Lionheart

This is a new line of e-books called “Hit Singles” or “Hit Albums”. Over 30 chart books covering numerous charts and music genres around the world. There are two editions for each book:

The Heavy Edition (Complete Chart Hits, from Number 1 to Number 200, alphabetically by artist’s name)
It is available to A&C subscribers.

The Light Edition (Top Ten Hits only, alphabetically by artist’s name)
It is available for free to everyone.

Both editions are updated every year.

I’m going to upload some of these books (the light editions) here. Here’s the first one…

---------------------------

A Quick question, you mention about two different editions, one only available to A&C subscribers. ? I have had a look at the links included, but where's the subscribe part and how much is the subscription ?

First time Billboard called its international chart's page 'Hits of the World' is in the April 3 1961 issue, on page 10. Anyway the charts were there since 3 months. Cash Box magazine began to do the same in late 1959.

Wow, I didn't know that. I'm working on a database chart for my country (Brazil) and i've been collecting all this charts from 1965-1979. Have you ever seen any Brazilian Chart on Cash Box? Thanks in advance.
