Billboard – Best Sellers In Stores (1940-1958)

Billboard began publishing charts in the 1930’s, but this, the Best Sellers In Stores Chart, was the first anywhere in the world to feature data gathered from actual over the counter sales. In this book we trace the history of this chart from the start to its end in 1958, several weeks after the Hot 100 had begun.

This book has the important information you always wanted to see for each charted record:-

  • B-Side
  • Full Composer Credits
  • Song Duration
  • Every Re-entry shown with entry date, peak and weeks
  • Full Weekly Charts! (A special bonus section at the back lists each and every weekly chart position used to compile the data in the book).

Together with the usual information such as entry date, label and catalogue number.
