Is that ALL you want! Here's my current spreadsheet for Music Vendor/Record World. It's still a work in progress as I need to finish the chart runs for the bubblers 1969-1982 (3624 entries left). After that, then it will be done.

Yes the weekly charts are merely a means to my ultimate goal - finishing this SS. Been working on this for years! (prior to joining this forum). I can't imagine just looking at the weekly charts as being an interesting proposition, but to each his own.

Note that there are many columns that are hidden. Unhide them to discover even more than info than desired. Make sure you read the "KEY" tab as it explains things.

As always, thanks for the work!

Count me as one of those weirdos. I'm really only interested in the weekly chart, as a snapshot in time. Chart runs just don't do it for me :)

Infinite THANKS, Dr. T, you ROCK!

*** Help, Dr. T or anybody: Could someone please re-upload Dr. T's files for the charts of Music Guild 1954, Music Guild/Music Vendor 1955, and Music Vendor 1956, 57, & 58? I totally missed out the first go round, that's what I get for not checking in every day, something I have now rectified, ha.

Cheers n chips...

Thank you for the spreadsheet. And thats all I want as well. One of the perils of being a completist I suppose. Hugh thanks for the sheet and for your continued willingness to share with us all.

You're right Dr. Travel. Having disclosed the hidden and been going thru' all the other columns it is in fact more than I have capacity to ask for at this moment in time. I do appreciate the structure, it's the magnitude that overwhelms me. Need to keep both body and brain in shape to be able to enjoy all your projects when it's all completed.

After re-reading my response, I hope it wasn't misinterpreted. It was in no way asking for anything or expecting anything.

I simply wanted to point out that I'm one of the chart fans over chart run fans. Chart runs drive me crazy :) while they show longevity, they leave too many questions unanswered. Why did the song move 15-11 in a particular week. What songs did it pass and why? What kept it out of the top ten that week? Chart runs tell only a small fraction of a song story. The chart compares all songs.

Here are the 1969 Top 100 and Looking Up charts:

http://www92.zippyshare.com/v/6nxDHAAa/file.html

So now everyone should have a complete set of Music Vendor/Record World 1954-1982 charts. Record Research plans on releasing their Record World 1973-1982 charts early next year.

Many thanks from me for finishing this monumental piece of work. Record World wasn't very good at showing last week's positions which would make the job even harder so much appreciation from me for persevering.

Many thanks Dr.T for all your hard work - I now have all the singles charts for Billboard, Cashbox and Music Vendor/Record World.

I have volume 1 of the Record World Chart Book and didn't realise Record Research were anticipating publishing volume 2 quite so soon.

I notice that their next publication appears to be Top Pop Albums 1955 - 2016 ( previous edition covered 1955 - 2009) - long overdue!

Yes just want to second that. Huge thanks to Dr Travel.

I would think that the Record World scans book would be one year after the other book. From a publishing perspective that makes sense so that you know how many to make. And if their is no market then no volume two need be produced.

I’m looking forward to the new albums book. It doesn’t have the non charting albums or the Pop Catalogue chart or Christmas charts. Happy the tracks are back but could wish they did them in order and beneath the original entry rather than at the end.

Many thanks. Only I cannot view the 1963 file because a password is asked. No problems with the other files.
Do you also have 1973/76, 1978, 1980 and 1981.

The Music Vendor first chart was October 4, 1954. But the Music Vendor Magazine started already in 1946. Were there no charts before.

A HUGE thanks to DrTravel!

Could I ask a favour? I didn't manage to download all the Record World yearly chart files at the time they were available and the ones I'm missing are no longer available to download. Would it be possible to upload the ones for:

1973
1974
1975
1976
1978
1980
1981

Thanks!

Hi WorldTraveller188. As your new just want to point out that you should combine posts into a single one and not post multiple times for the same information just different dates.

Equally, all of these are in this thread in the files attached.
