A few questions, as i've gone through part 1 & 2 of this topic
Kate Bush - "Never Forever" (entered 06-Oct-80, 20 wks) (#7 or #3) here it said #7 but i've seen somewhere #3 (which could be a typo or error as her debut album "The Kick Inside" was #3
The Smiths' "Best Volume 1" was listed here as peak #64 but on eikipedia it says #46 and refers to one of David Kent's chart books. Which one is wrong?
John (Cougar) Mellencamp's "Miami" is listed here on apost from 03/09/2009 05:36, as having made the album charts on 13-Aug-79 (peak #77 during 10 weeks on the chart). I haven't heard of a Mellencamp album with that title, was it really listed in the charts under that title? It might also be an Australian version of the US-release "John Cougar" (from 1979) which included the song Miami.
Did Dolly Parton's "Both Sides of Dolly Parton" album peak at #37 or #38, both numbers can be found in different posts in part 1?
Thanks for the info about The Smiths 'Best...1' and especially on Mellencamp's 'Miami' - never knew it was named like that anywhere but i can see the reason why the album was re-named as he had already made an impact on Australian charts while in US the first two albums had flopped so calling it 'John Cougar' in US made more sense.
Hey bulion, are you able to clear up the mystery about the Cher album that charted in 1990 (I think) the site says it was the 1966 version, but another member believes it should actually be the version that has I Found Someone on it, which the database here said it never charted in Australia, while the 1966 Cher album peaked at #32 in 1990 (or whatever year IFS charted)
Which albums by Lionel Richie charted during the pre-ARIA era? I know that "Can't Slow Down" was # but how did the self-titled debut and the third album "Dancing on the Ceiling" chart? If possible, also add the Commodores albums before his solo career (and the ones after his departure)
Hi and thx in advance. I'm after albums by recently deceased Darryl Cotton post-Zoot. His groups included: Darryl and Beeb, Frieze, Friends, Cotton Lloyd & Christian, Darryl Cotton Band, Darryl Cotton & the Charts, Darryl Cotton & the Divers, Burns Cotton & Morris, and Cotton Keays & Morris.

Might be one for you Album Guru Joe (your year-by-year essential album list is a ripper -- I'm still working my way through it, brilliant stuff). Okay, now that I've finished pi5sing in your pocket (ha ha, though seriously, great work!), I've got a few albums that I'm interested in knowing the Australian peaks for. I understand that the first proper Aust LP charts didn't start until 1970, but there were top fives or something earlier?
1. Which, if any, Easybeats albums charted? 2. Same with the Loved Ones' 'Magic Box'? 3. Did 'Chicago Transit Authority' by Chicago (1969) chart? It made #9 in the UK and #17 in the US. 4. I'm looking for the peaks of these Faces albums: 'A Nod is as Good as Good As a Wink to a Blind Horse' (1971) and 'Ooh La La' (1973)
Greetings to hijinx, bulion, album guru joe and everyone else around... got a few album chart enquiries: The Masters Apprentices (did their self-titled debut chart?). All their album peaks (if any) would be appreciated. Also looking for peak positions of the following:
Aimee Mann: Whatever (1993) Emerson, Lake and Palmer: Tarkus (1971) Stevie Wonder: Fulfillingness First Finale (1974) Badly Drawn Boy: The Hour of the Bewilderbeast (2000) Motorhead: No Sleep Til' Hammersmith (1981)
Great. Thanks for that. Got four more quick ones: Foreigner: 'Foreigner 4' (1981) Ministry: 'Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs' (1992) Orchestral Movements in the Dark: 'Crush' (1985) Paul Young: 'No Parlez' (1983) Deee-Lite: 'World Clique' (1990) Cheers
Great work everybody. Got a few more... The Yardbirds. Did any of their LPs chart? Likewise, Small Faces. Also.. UB40: 'Signing Off' (1980). Plus a couple of more recent ones if you don't mind. Hole: 'Pretty on the Inside' (1991) and Even: 'Less is More' (1996). Cheers
Where did The Rolling Stones' "Get Your Ya Ya's Out" peak at? Also, Neil Young's 'Ragged Glory' (1990) Foreigner: ''Head Games'' (1979) Joan Armatrading: "Joan Armatrading" (1976) Iggy Pop: "New Values" (1979) Heaven 17: "Penthouse and Pavement" (1981) John Lee Hooker: "The Healer" (1989)
Thanks bulion! I'm glad to hear that Ready For The World had a single that made the top 15 here in Australia. Sadly The Mavericks didn't make the charts, but oh well. Did both of these acts have an album that charted? Would love to know thanks.
Thanking you in advance. I'm after the highest chart positions for the following four albums: Boomtown Rats - The Fine Art of Surfacing Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense Lynyrd Skynyrd - Street Survivors Frankie Goes to Hollywood - Liverpool.
Marvellous work as always, you fine people. A few more albums that I'm seeking the peak positions for (if they in fact charted at all):
Elvis Costello - Blood and Chocolate (1986) Mercury Rev - Deserters Songs (1998) Joan Armatrading - Show Some Emotion (1977) Teardrop Explodes - Kilimanjaro (1980) Hunters and Collectors - What's A Few Men? (1987)
The Kent Reports started in July 1974, but Dark Side of the Moon hits its peak in late 1973. The Go-Set chart had it peak at No.3 initially in early July of 1973, and then three more weeks at No.3 in early November, so that's all I can give you at the moment.
A few queries. High chart possies (if any) for the albums... Primal Scream "Screamadelica" 1991 The Waterboys "Fisherman's Blues" 1988 Stephen Cummings "Falling Swinger" 1994 Jim Keays "The Boy From the Stars" 1974 Stereo MCs "Connected" 1992
Thanking you in advance. A few album questions. High chart pozzies for the following:
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark: Architecture and Morality (1981) Bruce Springsteen & the E-Street Band: Live 1975-85 (1986) Genesis: The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (1974) LL Cool J: Radio (1985) Stephen Stills: Stephen Stills (1970)
