4.0 out of 5 stars If you like music this is well worth the money, 7 April 2001
Ever sat racking your brains as to the title of a certain song by a band that only released one record? Well this book is the answer to you problems, not only will it tell you the title of the track and the year it was released, but also when it entered the chart, how long it was in and what its highest position was. Fear not as well because if you can remember the title of the song but not the artist you can go to the back of the book and all song titles are there listed alphabetically. Also included in the back of the book is a list of all the number ones grouped in year order, as well as album listings. All in all a very comprehensive reference book. I was a little dissapointed as I purchased this book thinking that going by the title I was getting a page by page of top 20/40 UK singles, however the title of the book was slightly misleading as it does not as implied give you the chart listings in top 20 format for instance the top 20 singles for the week say of 20/6/1974 are at No: 1. etc. but all in all still worth the money.
