Sorry to revive this old thread. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the certification levels for singles was in New Zealand in the 70s. I know it was 5k/10k for a while but is now up to 7.5k/15k. Thanks for any help.
Hey Dean, do you have any idea if many of the songs from the 1978-1989 period managed to get certified. That seems like a hefty amount to aim for and many of the songs from this time had real limited chart runs.
Hello, could somebody tell me, please, something about following book: Freeman, W. R. : New Zealand Top Twenty Singles 1957-1993?? Does it really contain New Zealand Singles Chart since 1957? Greets to all
Hi Jesse j. I was in touch with the author of that book recently. Firstly, he covers only the top 20 of the RIANZ charts as listed on this site. The early charts from 1957 to 1960 don't exist it appears. I am hoping someone, somewhere has them. They are part of the Lever Hit Parade as broadcast and compiled by Radio NZ. This chart began as a Top 8 in 1946 and ran until 1965. The stats mentioned in his book are just that, stats. Someone had the information but sadly not the charts. There are Lever Hit Parade charts from 1960 to 1965 at flavourofnz.co.nz. The 1966 to 1975 charts mentioned in the book were the NZ Listener charts. Hope this helps
Hello Tempest, thank you very much for all those information! Can you tell me, please, does the book contain only statistics or is there data like Peak-position, entry-date, weeks on chart...? Best regards
I don't actually have Warwicks book but a copy in the Dunedin library, from memory, just had placing and number of weeks charted. I have a full set of charts from 1966 and most between 1960 and 1965 as well as my own set of statistics if I can help in any way John
Most of the albums and singles that charted from 1978-1989 were certified, some however, were not. I know of at least 2 albums that were not certified during their run, and they would certainly be platinum, one of which i have confirmation from via their original label 'Polar'. Singles are quite different, most were certified, many sales were exaggerated. I know of one in 1993 that allegedly sold over 8,300, in reality it sold barely over 5,000.
Certifications started mid 1978 so some early 1978 singles missed out, in particular: Mull of Kintyre, most likely a platinum disc, but no information is known about its sales. Dean.
There is a very good discography of Queen on Wikepedia that will tell you all you want about world chart stats. Annoyingly there are no NZ charts on there but I can let you know all you want there anyway. Look up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_discography
