Sixties City
British 60s Chart Hits Sixties City
   

    

About this compilation . . .

These Top 20 singles chart listings are based on sales statistics compiled by the 'Record Retailer', 'Record Mirror' and 'Music Week' music papers.
The chart positions may differ from those quoted by the BBC who, until 1968, produced their own chart from a compilation of various pop papers.

After 1967 the chart positions became standardised when 'Music Week', the BBC and the BPI started using weekly charts compiled by the British Market Research Bureau.


For this same reason, as the eagle-eyed among you will undoubtedly notice, there are some slight differences in entries between this and my A-Z chart artist information. Please don't let me know exactly what they are - this is not an error but entirely due to a different compilation source necessarily being used. There is no real right or wrong 'official' chart before 1968. You pays yer money an' you takes yer choice!

It was not uncommon for records to share positional listings i.e. there may be more than one record in a particular chart position in any given week - these are not misprints!

And finally, (I am SO good to you!) to make chart position viewing easier......

The Number 1 position for each week is shown in BLUE and Top 10 positions are shown in GREEN
