I've decided to put together my own chart book. An advertisement - a couple of pages - is shown below. If you wish to buy the full book - for the 1950's only so far, with later volumes to follow should anybody actually want this stuff! - then please send me an email and I'll send details of payment.

Cost - 10. Delivery, by PDF.

The 1950's is a wonderful decade, with some amazing songs. Check out the book, and the material that isn't anywhere else in book form including length of record and composer credits.

Excellent work I love how you have put in Songwriters and b sides. Very similar to Joel Whitburn's American Top Pop Singles. If you did one for more recent years I would most certainly buy one from you.!

Somehow I don't think it's a coincidence that Lonnie Donegan is included in your sample pages laugh.gif

The plan is to continue as far as I can. Next decade is the 1960's, then I intend to do one for Albums for 1956-1969. Always assuming sales go well and people want it.

PM me your PayPal email address if you do want a copy.

Some have asked for a printed copy of the book. I have found a way to produce limited quantities of the book, which will cost 30 plus postage and packaging to wherever you are.

The printed copies are in the following style (see below) and to order these I will need approximately two weeks from recipe of your order. To order, I need your full postal address, including country. I will then calculate the postage costs and dispatch.

I understand that some require a printed version and so that is why this has been produced. I do however understand that some may find the costs here prohibitive, but the additional costs are what it will cost me to produce.

A4 sized coil (spiral) bound documents.
Bound on the short edge
Clear coloured coils (spirals).
Clear PVC cover (front).
Front cover printed colour outside, blank inside on 300gsm smooth matt (uncoated) card.
Back cover printed no printing (blank) on 300gsm smooth matt (uncoated) card.
Inner pages printed double sided on 80gsm smooth matt (uncoated) paper.
89 colour pages.
Despatched 7 working days from approval of artwork.
Normally delivered within 1 working day from despatch.
This item has been zero rated for VAT as it is a bound document.

Very good.

A suggestion for other editions, which you may wish to include is under neath the artist list the artists for which they have written hits for (if applicable). so for instance for Marty Wilde you could put The Casuals, Lulu, Kim Wilde, Peter Shelley

Thanks for the suggestion. That is difficult and I'd need to consider how best to set that up in the database. I shall consider.

I have created a website - http://thechartbook.co.uk - which is how I will sell these, with transactions handled by PayPal. I hope that you will almost automatically receive a copy of the book you order when my email opens and the transactions are processed. It's still a work in progress and I need to try and automate it better. But for now have a look and tell me what you think.

Lonnie this is most welcome - makes the whole process far-easier and I've just made my purchase via PayPal. I've yet to have a chance to fully-peruse the virtual tome on the 1950s singles, but I'm already thinking that a tenner is damn good value for such a piece of comprehensive work. Can't wait to be in possession of the full set but realise I must be patient as that is due what, 2020?!

Like for buses? It depends if you want them all. I have tried to design these so that they are separate books so you buy what you want. For example, if your not a fan of the 1970's then that volume wouldn't be one you'd buy.

I'm not going to do a subscription model because, after careful thought, I can't guarantee to produce a new book every month or week or amount of time. I'm going to produce new books every month as a minimum but for some it might be longer between books. It all depends on the spare time I get.

But do please buy when you can. I'm not going to reduce the prices for a deal at any point (I know some book sites do) so rest assured the price is the price is the price.
