02)... ELVIS PRESLEY -- (S) 80 + (A) 66 = 146 Weeks

THE ARTISTS WITH THE MOST No.1 SINGLES & ALBUMS IN THE UK CHARTS

(S) = Singles + (A) = Albums

01)... ELVIS PRESLEY -- (S) 21 + (A) 13 = 34 No.1's

02)... THE BEATLES -- (S) 17 + (A) 15 = 32 No.1's @@@

03)... MADONNA -- (S) 13 + (A) 12 = 25 No.1's

04)= CLIFF RICHARD -- (S) 14 + (A) 7 = 21 No.1's

06)... ROLLING STONES -- (S) 8 + (A) 12 = 20 No.1's

07)= TAKE THAT -- (S) 12 + (A) 7 = 19 No.1's

10)= MICHAEL JACKSON -- (S) 7 + (A) 10 = 17 No.1's
10)= U2 -- (S) 7 + (A) 10 = 17 No.1's

@@@ = If The OCC count the current Beatles No.1 Album, as
their 16th UK No.1 Album, then they have 33 UK No.1 Singles +
Albums. They will still have one less than Elvis Presley, however.

NOTE -- The OCC have not counted it as The Beatles 16th No.1
Album. They say that they are still on 15 No.1 Albums.


@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

A)... Beatles

Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band

ITS 'GAP' BETWEEN LAST BEING AT No.1 & RETURNING TO No.1

W/E 3rd February 1968 to W/E 8th June 2017 = 49 Years & 4 Months

ITS 'SPAN' BETWEEN FIRST BEING AT No.1 & RETURNING TO No.1

W/E 10th June 1967 to W/E 8th June 2017 = 50 Years

It was last at No.1 in 1968. It was its 27th No.1 Week. If The OCC regard
its current No.1 Position as being by the same Album, then it has its 28th
Week at No.1 today. As well as being the longest 'Gap' between an Album
last being at No.1 & it returning to No.1.

It also has the longest 'Span' of an Album first reaching No.1 & next reaching
No.1. In both cases 'Exile On Main Street' by the Rolling Stones has the 2nd
longest 'Gap' & the 2nd longest 'Span'.


B)... Rolling Stones

This Rolling Stones Album only spent 1 Week at No.1 in both 1972 and 2010.
Therefore its No.1 'Gap' & 'Span' cover the same amount of time.....

Exile On Main Street

W/E 10th June 1972 to W/E 29th May 2010 = 37 Years & 11 Months

However - The OCC regard it as not being their 1972 Album returning to No.1. The 2010 No.1
had a 2nd Disk, of 10 'New' Songs, added, so The OCC decided that it was a brand new No.1
Album for the Group. Which is why The OCC counted the 'Blue & Lonesome' No.1, (December
2016), as the Rolling Stones 12th UK No.1 Album & not their 11th.
