UK/US/EU Charts 1976

 

In 1975, 12’’ singles became popular. They were commonly used by DJs in discos and contain different mixes of hits that entered the Chart. Then, at least three versions can be distinguished:
1) 7’’ Single Edit, 2) 12’’ Mix(es), 3) Album.
Versions included in this compilation are 7’’ Single Edits, despite extended 12’’ or Album mixes were much more popular and can be found in Greatest Hits compilations. Number of Single Edits is significant and this fact is not underlined in a track description.
Parts 1-10: UK Chart, all Top 40 entries (without re-issues).
Part 11: European Hits and UnCharted Gems (As & Bs)

Non-Billboard Cash Box, Music Vendor (Record World) 1954-1969

 

On the week ending November 12, 1955, Billboard published The Top 100 for the first time. In 1959, Billboard Bubbling Under Chart has been launched. In parallel, two other charts existed on American music industry scene, Cash Box and Music Vendor.

Cash Box Top 50 between 1954 and 1956, Top 75 between 1956 and 1958, Top 100 from 1958.

Music Vendor Top 100 between 1954 and 1964, renamed Record World Top 100 in 1964.

The number of hits that entered these charts and didn’t appear on Billboard Charts (Pop, R&B, Country, AC), even as flips, was significant. Then, to have complete overview on American music industry scene from 1954 to 1969, also two "other" charts have to be taken into account*.

Non-Billboard Cash Box of the 1960’s have been posted already (details below). 

Non-Billboard hits 1954-1959 of both "other" charts will be posted next, As & Bs. 
  • Hits that entered Billboard charts as flips, and/or entered charts other than Pop, are omitted. 
  • The research of Whitburn’s Billboard Top Pop Singles begins with the issue dated January 1, 1955 and includes songs that first charted in 1954. The Comparison Book (primary reference) lists songs that charted from October 2, 1954, i.e. songs with at least one debut date that satisfies the boundary (other debut date(s) can be earlier). Earlier 1954 non-Billboard (Whitburn’s Pop Hits) songs researched for Cash Box Pop Hits (secondary reference)  and yet not researched for the Comparison Book are also included in this project, as additional files.
  • Songs recorded by multiple artists were listed by Cash Box together at one chart position.  Only "hit" secondary versions (designated with a star) were researched for the Comparison Book and Cash Box Pop Hits and only such versions are included (for the 1960s, the comparison is based on original CB charts and all secondary versions are included).

In majority, the singles are not available on CD or on the Internet, some two hundred 45s from my collection have been ripped and remastered.

Please share your comments, suggestions.

*The total number of hit singles that were not listed on Billboard Charts, as Hits or Flips: 1197
·         Cash Box 1950’s: 404 (310+94)
·         Cash Box 1960’s: 120
·         Music Vendor: 673
·         Record World: 33
