Data Notes

Artists are listed alphabetically by the first letter of the artist's name ( excluding 'A' and 'The' ). Where a title appears to be repeated, it is actually a different release with the same title.
Re-releases and re-entries are NOT included although they ARE in the calculated statistics.

The year given is the year in the Sixties where the original release first featured in the record chart (some of the 1960 entries were released in 1959) and the position stated indicates the highest the record achieved at ANY time on the Sixties charts.

For statistical purposes, if no chart was issued for a particular week the previous week's positions have been used. Also, all statistics are calculated from the Saturday of the week in which a particular chart was published.

  A Brief EP Chart History

'Melody Maker' started to list EP 'charts' from 21st November 1959. The first ever separate 'official' EP chart was listed by 'Record Retailer' on 10th March 1960, consisting of 10 titles, and the last was on 30th November 1967 which only listed nine due to the fall in numbers of EPs being produced. Prior to the EP chart listings, EP records were listed on the singles chart, assuming sales were sufficient to register.

On the demise of the EP chart this practice was reinstated until February 1969 at which time EPs were no longer included.
