could anyone please be able to give australian album chart positions for the following artists : the beatles, the beach boys, the rolling stones, the who, bob dylan, the byrds, pink floyd and led zeppelin.
Well here's a new thread where people can ask for pre June-1988 album information... and to start it all off....
The first album charts were started in Australia in the early 60's. 3XY (Melb), 2CA (Canberra) and 2UE (Syd) had an occasional monthly chart, but these were irregular at best. In 1965 2UE started putting a small Top 5 selling LP (Long Player) chart on the weekly Top 40 countdown, as too did 6PR (Perth) and 5AD (Adel.), so David Kent has combined all of this information, and when later states put their information on too, it became a national album charts. So any albums that were released prior to 1965 won't appear here unless they re-charted later. So I'll start off with the first group to appear at No.1 on the National Album Charts...

your the best bulion, thanks again. i must say i was suprised to see the beach boys 60's albums never charted here and bob dylan's two classics from 1965 didn't either. i assume this had alot to do with what was being played or not being played on australian radio at the time?
With only a few stations around Australia contributing towards an albums chart, it was lucky that anything made it in at all. A Top 10 was used mostly throughout the 60's, and with Beatles, Herb Alpert and Soundtracks taking up most places, it was hard for much else to get in there. So things like Beach Boys, Dylan and many other classic albums we know did not make it because of this. In fact there were only 22 No.1 albums during the 1965-1969 period, and considering we have around that many per year now, shows you how slow things were back then. It wasn't until the 1970's that the album charts expanded initially into a Top 20, and by 1972 a Top 40, then a Top 100 by the mid 70's.

In mid-1974, David Kent (a long time chart collector and collator) started publishing the Kent Music Report, which later became the Australian Music Report (AMR). ARIA started using David's chart in mid01983, then five years after the contract finished, that's when ARIA went and did their own charts. Prior to 1974, yes there were the Go-Set charts, which started in early 1966. Here's a link to look at the history of those charts...
So from 1966 to 1974 Go-Set did their charts, but one thing of note with their charts, when they added up the information for each state, they didn't take into account the different population in each city, they just gave everything the same amount of points, which doesn't give a proper balance to the charts. This means that a No.1 in Perth or Tasmania would have equal amount of points to a Melbourne or Sydney chart-topper. So that's why David Kent has gone back and re-calculated the entire charts from 1956 to 1974, plus he also found all of the Top 20 charts from 1940 to 1956 (I've only been able to go back as far as 1950 myself), and then put them all in his chart books.

No you didn't get missed, I just ran out of time. So here we go...
There are only three bands with X in their title that have charted in Australia pre-1989. They are XL Capris (Aussie group), X-Ray Spex (also an Aussie group) and the English guys XTC. So sorry, no 'X' album (or even singles) charted in Australia.

i find it such a great shame that so many magnificant albums from the 60's just didn't chart!!! i realize for a period in the 60's we only had a top 10, but those soundtracks(that dominated) are so shit in comparison with the lps being produced around that time. aussies must have had very deaf ears during the 60's. are you able to shed more light on why this is the case?cheers.
Unfortunately, the album was looked on as a novelty thing in the 60's for some record companies, who used it as a tool for putting a collection of an artists songs together. But also the cost of an album during that time was beyond the regular weekly budget, so that's why some companies put out cheaper albums of big hits done by orchestra's or covers versions. But in the mid 60's when The Beatles, Beach Boys and Rolling Stones came along, they had albums that were full of unknown and self-penned songs, stuff that we hadn't heard here before like blues music (on masse that is) ala Rolling Stones and early Beatles and they helped start a bigger market. It wasn't until the early 70's that Rock-God bands like Led Zeppelin and the like made you have to buy the album to listen to the songs you liked, as radio was very pop-orientated (it was the bubble-gum period) and wouldn't play a lot of the harder edged music. When Bowie and T-Rex came along in 71 & 72, they had married the two styles together, thus they had big albums sales, whilst the rock was still selling well (it didn't decline until Disco in the late 70's), it still sold none-the-less. Skyhooks had a huge selling album because more than half of the album had tracks that were banned to be played on radio (deemed too rude at the time), so people HAD to go out and buy it, plus people were getting paid more by this time too.
So I too think it's a shame that these albums didn't make it into the charts, but don't worry, I know people who did buy them at the time, and still have them in their collections, so just because they didn't chart, doesn't mean that people weren't buyin' em.
sorry for the late reply been on holidays, anyway thanks a million bulion, that information above answers my question beautifully. what an incredible journey the ALBUM's had, to become what it is today in australia. a must have item!!! cheers once again, joe

G'day i'm a big fan of Daddy Cool, it would be great if you could post thier album postions. Also i've heard that australia had to adjust thier album certifications(gold,platium etc.) because Daddy Cool's first lp "Daddy Who?... Daddy Cool" sold so many records, is this true???
I don't know about the certification-adjustment, it might be true.

Jinx, Elvis had to wait until RCA took all of his stock off the market in 2003 to gain a No.1 album. When "A Little Less Conversation" was at No.1, the record company had NO Elvis titles available in Australia to order (I was working in music retail at the time), and that's how it helped to get "30 No.1's" to the top of the charts, because people were starved for his material at that time.

Why doesn't everybody just buy the David Kent books for all of their chart queries rather than exposing bulion to the risk of being sued for breach of copyright. See the details of the books at www.austchartbook.com.au
spug don't take this the wrong way but worry about your own issues. i'm sure bulion knows what he's doing otherwise this forum wouldn't exist. and i'm sure many people enjoy looking through this forum, check out the amount of hits it's had in the short time it's been existant!!
g'day i'm wondering why ac/dc's new album didn't debut at no.#2 last week after one day sales(friday). they sold 7000 odd albums to metallica's 6000 odd. both metallica and kings of leon entered the charts with thier one day sales. are you able to shed some light on the situation or is aria riggin' the charts so they debut at no#1 this week?
Joe, it's up to the record companies and management of the band to say yes or no for putting an album in earlier than it's official release date. If Alberts or Sony BMG didn't want it to go in last week, and NOT make No.1 first week, then that's their choice, whereas Universal said go ahead for Metallica and RCA (thru Sony BMG) said yes to Kings of Leon. Maybe they wanted it to look like it had sold 3xplatinum in it's first week, when in fact it only sold 2.3xPlatinum (minus 7000 from your figure). It makes it looks more impressive that way.

Hi. I would be grateful if someone would list the chart positions for Sweet (The Sweet prior to 1974). I assume that your source for these positions is David Kent's "Australian Chart Book: 1970-1992". Is this correct? Many thanks in advance.

Hi again, now I'm looking for 1980s Australian band Spy vs Spy aka v. Spy v. Spy, both albums and singles, please. I've already got their later releases on ARIA charts by using the above search engine.

Yanky; we only had Top 10 album charts from 1965 through to 1969, then a Top 20 for two years, then a 40 by 1971.
So early albums during the 60's didn't chart as there wasn't the market in Australia for them at the time (unlike America).
As you can see from Nancy Sinatra's stuff, she only had one album which reached No.6, and was in the Top 10 for a single week. So that's the major reason they (and others) didn't chart during the 60's.
It's not hard to get any pre-1989 info, it's just not on this site, and it's only in 2 books. David Kent has compiled 3 books, 1940-1969, 1970-1992 and 1993 - 2005, and ARIA used the AMR charts from 1983 to mid-1988, so the information will be the same.
www.austchartbook.com.au is his website, where you can see samples of the books and their layouts, and they are REALLY handy books to have.
Country Bumpkin, Linda Ronstadt has already been put in this thread, so just hit Ctrl and F and type her name in and it will go and FIND all of the Linda Ronstadt listings in this thread.

As the two (of the 4) Bobby's charted mainly in the early part of the 60's, album charts were not compiled until 1965, so the missed out. Although Mr. Vinton's second wind in the late 60's, early 70's did take one album into the charts.
Can someone provide the AMR Chart run for Cliff Richard's Private Collection. It appears to have entered the AMR Chart in mid-May 1988 and peaked at #22 (with 34 weeks in total).
However, curiously, on ARIA its debut is not until late November. Its peak here is #10 apparently and its total weeks are 25.
I can't reconcile how it could have such a gap - 6 months - between the AMR debut and the ARIA debut. Surely if ARIA's album chart commenced week ending 27 June 1988 (just six weeks after the AMR debut) it would have charted immediatel?
Can anyone shed some light on what happened with this album.

rewardMan, The Private Collection for Cliff Richard did have an entry date of May 1989, but it charted down low in the Top 100 for a couple of weeks, then it re-entered late October, entering the Top 50 in November. AMR chart info does not include re-entries (unless they're years apart) and are amalgamations of their chart run. The AMR used collated information from stores on a points system (1 to 5, five being high-end sales), whereas ARIA used actual sales information, thus getting different information from different sources, which is why some things vary because of shop-people's tastes (the ones reporting to AMR), as opposed to the public's buying habits.
Thanks Bulion. Great to get some clarity on this issue.
It's a shame that the two charts were different lengths. Presumably there were several weeks when the album charted between 51 and 100 on AMR when it was outside the ARIA Top 50.
If the AMR weeks outside the 50 could be added to the list it would be interesting to see how many were added to the 25 weeks attained on the ARIA Chart (Top 50 only).
One further point - I note that no ARIA Chart was published over Christmas and New Year 1989/90. Doesn't this mean in effect that albums in the chart immediately prior to Christmas and the week after the New Year are denied two weeks on the chart? Surely two weeks should be added to such albums' chart runs for the record book.
This is the methodology of the Guiness Book Of Hits and makes perfect sense to me.
can you confirm that Remember Me by Cliff peaked at #6 on ARIA with 13 weeks on?
can you also tell me if there was any overlap in tha chart runs of Always Guaranteed by Cliff - i.e. it started its chart life on AMR 26 Oct. 87 - did it have any appearance on ARIA from late June 88? The stats I have say it peaked at #6 and spent 36 weeks on the chart. What say you, please?
g'day, thanks bulion. i can't believe tim buckley never charted with any of he's amazing albums, oh well least we have the beauty of hindsight and can still buy his records and enjoy them. cheers again

g'day, thanks again bulion, great to see the allman brothers band hit the charts with a couple of albums. didn't expect the international submarine band to chart , even usa was guilty of missing the beat with gram parson's works. cheers
thanks bulion my dad was wrapped with that info, but couldn't believe thier fisrt two lp's didn't chart here. i figure our great land down under took a couple of years ( also judging by the allman brothers bands chart history) for us to trigger on to southern rock. and a bit into the future, look, southern rockers kings of leon rule the roost, funny hey

G'day, thanks again for The Honeycombs info bulion. Anyway how did these two R&B legends fair in the lp charts; Wilson Pickett and The Temptations. Also if possible Sonny & Cher and Weather Report, cheers Last edited:
G'day, thankyou once again bulion for your wonderful work. I really appreciate it.
Here's a few more artist's if it's no trouble : Captain Beefheart & His Magic Dirt Band, Albert King, The Electric Prunes, Jeff Beck, Blue Cheer, Alexander "Skip" Spence and Fairport Convention. Cheers
Glad to see a Fairport Convention lp chart and a few Jeff Beck albums also. Didn't think some of the more obscure artists' would chart though, they didn't fair that well in thier respective homelands either.
Three others when you got time; Spirit, Jimmy Cliff and David(Dave) Crosby's solo efforts. Cheers Last edited:

How many weeks did Whitney Houston spend in the top 100 for her first two albums in the 1980s? Also, I know it's a pre-1989 thread, but is it possible to get the number of weeks her albums in the 1990s and 2000s spent in the top 100? (Mostly "My Love Is Your Love", as it only spent 2 weeks in the top 50, and I'm curious as to how many weeks it spent below that.) I ask because there's no readily available archive for below top 100 positions throughout the 1990s.
Hi & thx in advance. I'm after Lobby Loyde albums and singles. His bands include Purple Hearts, Wild Cherries, Billy Thorpe & the Aztecs (The Hoax Is Over), Coloured Balls, Southern Electric/Sudden Electric and solo work. I'll check the sister thread(s) for singles.
