  1. Just wanted to know whether you managed to unearth the Melody Maker charts from June 20-August 1, 1959, when there was a printer’s strike and the paper wasn’t published?

    1. I have the Singles charts, as they were sent to the BBC to form the BBC Composite chart, but not the album listings. I do wonder if those were lost, as they would not have been something the BBC would have wanted and so not kept hold of.
