    Hello there, chart collectors!
    Can you help me with 1970's MM Album charts?
    I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

    I may be wrong but haven't these been posted before? I have a feeling that kingofskiffle has posted these before. If not KoS then someone else has done? I'm thinking that they were posted about 6 or so years ago. I'll have a look in the morning to see if I can find them.

    I know the Melody Maker Singles charts were posted but I'm sure the Albums charts were also posted.

    I've just checked - kingofskiffle posted the Melody Maker Albums charts but they were the 1960s Albums charts...

    https://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=52884

    And they were posted a decade ago and not just 6 years ago! So none from the 1970s. Perhaps if someone could post the 1970s equivalent...

    At the time I didn’t have the 1970’s charts hence why I didn’t post. I also know of mistakes in that original posting which is understandable. I’ll try and get round to doing the set again and properly.

    Looking for scans or the charts themselves for Melody Maker Album charts for 1971 on the following dates. Does anybody have them?

    7 August
    21 Aug
    28 Aug
    4 Sep
    11 Sep
    18 Sep
    25 Sep

    2, 9, 16 Oct would be useful as well - I have these, but the scans are cut directly down the middle of the chart, so now positions and as such I have to guess. I have all the other charts at this point up to the end of 1971 (Not checked beyond that time period as yet).

    I need a small amount of help with some missing scans for the following dates. Scans are for both Singles and Albums, but Albums for a preference as they are harder to find.

    30 Dec 1972 OR 6 Jan 1973 (One chart in-between the two I have I think)
    22 Dec 73
    5 Jan 74
    17 Aug 74 (confirmation of how many records at 30 on the album chart as existing scan cuts this off)
    17 Dec 1977
    31 Dec 1977 (or confirmation it does not exist)
    30 Sep 1978

    Many thanks for the scan - I can't access zippy share in the UK but I am saving the chart text for when I add the 1978 albums.

    [Note MM had incorrect title listed for #14 and (arguably) incorrect artist credit for #15]

    MM didn't publish on 31st Dec 1977 ... so I would assume no chart was compiled, but not 100% sure!
