Another Album Post

Hi All

A second 1950's Album post has been made into the 1950's Newsgroup. It is the remaining 1956 charting albums.

Enjoy

Thanks Chunky

Kirk's the main man though, I just tell him off when he forgets things (only joking!!)

Some of those early 1950's tracks are a problem to find, but somehow he manages to magic them up from somewhere - and pretty good copies as well - they are over half a century old, amazing.

Thanks chunky, and may I say it's a team effort and the help from Bassman has been invaluable keeping the project going and moving us into the 1970s, and beyond.

One of us hardly ever mentioned but who's spent an enormous amount of time with Britburn is Lonnie (Allen) who organises and prepares the labels and cover images. It's a huge job (Tel has been busy here too and done all the album images) and one Lonnie's been doing since our inception. Many thanks Lonnie !! :D

Of course it all helps having such an interest in the charts etc. It was a lot of fun preparing the album data and felt very worthwhile as I don't think all the info is available elsewhere quite like we have it.

Cheers - Kirk
