Hi Grendizer - a really interesting set of lists from the early sixties in Japan of what Western Music was favoured in Tokyo.

I see that Cliff Richard made a breakthrough in 1963 - no doubt thanks to his move into glossy movie musicals - and that was also the final ingredient to make him Billboard's number one international act globally too I'm sure despite hardly having a look in Stateside.

One question about the last chart, you have Presley's 'Devil In Disguise' in No. 2 & No. 8 place - which is it please and what should be in the place of it where it isn't?! I assume it didn't bounce back up to No. 2 really...?

Oh, and April 1963 has an Elvis entry in Japanese script - what is that please too?

Thanks again.

Hi topicel,
Thankyou for all the information regarding the three major music charts, as I have been doing some research myself.
I was wondering if it was not too much trouble if you could give me a sales estimate on the chart runs regarding the group The Monkees and their singles as you have done with the Jackson 5 ?
Any help would be much appreciated as I have no sales figures to work from.
Thankyou, Shane.

Thank you for you, bringing attention to this. I made mistakes but now, Cliff Richard and the Beatles are where they should be.
