12 " LP (Long Play) - All The Sixties LP Chart Entries - Alphabetically by Artist

Section 1: Named Groups and Solo Artists

                                                                                                                              

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. Some albums were issued in both stereo and mono. The chart rating treated both as the same version although they actually had different catalogue numbers.

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.

Section 2: Miscellaneous Mixed Artists


To avoid a lot of confusion, the following LP chart entries are listed se
parately, by type, and are ordered alphabetically by album title as they are largely 'various artists' compilations.

Anonymous Cover Versions      Compilation Albums      Film Soundtracks
     Stage Cast Recordings      Studio Cast Recordings      T.V. Soundtracks and Spin-Offs
