NME commentary for the last eight weeks:

Winston Chruchill, born 1874, took the Jim Reeves chart-route. Like Dylan, he had no supporting single. The LP emphasised wartime speech extracts. More curious was the "Lennon-McCartney songbook": (This US female vocalist didn`t really co-write the Beatles` songs). One of chart history`s least remembered entries, its success was due partly to Frank Sinatra´s label Reprise - it had already achieved chart placings for eleven albums.

NME commentary for the last eight weeks:

February saw "Another Side Of Bob Dylan", his fourth LP, back in the Top 10, and by the end of March he was in the lists with a vengeance, with his second album, "Freewheelin`", re-entering alongside his newly-arrived third LP, while its title-track, aptly named "The Times They Are A-Changin`", finally took him into the singles chart. In April this went Top 10, as he came to Britain for what would prove his last solo-acoustic tour, captured on D.A.Pennebaker`s pioneering rock-documentary "Don`t Look Back".

NME commentary for the last eight weeks:

In mid-tour, Dylan was told by the Sheriff of Nottingham`s wife: "everybody loves you ... I think the songs are very wonderful. And you write them yourself, too, don`t you, sometimes?" By May Day, Dylan`s "electric" single, "Subterranean Homesick Blues", was in the top 20 alongside his two-year old "protest" song; soon after, his new album, with one acoustic and one electric side, topped the LP chart. The Sheriff`s wife surely preferred the LPs just below in early June: "The Sound Of Music" and "Hit Maker".

NME commentary for the last 8 weeks:

Burt Bacharach and Hal David were a "sophisticated" Goffin-King: a series of their songs became unfailing hits for whoever recorded them, while being instantly recognizable as Bacharach-David. Ther ewas "Walk On By" and "You`ll Never Get To Heaven" by Dionne Warwick - the former would chart again for the Stranglers in 1978 - "Anyone Who Had A Heart" by Dionne Warwick and Cilla Black. "Trains And Boats And Planes" wasa 1965 hit by Billy J. Kramer and by Bacharach himself

NME commentary for the last 8 weeks:

And then came Joan Baez. Since mid-June she`d been quietls storming the chart (in parallel with the single "There But For Fortune"), with her exciting LP titles "Joan Baez In Concert No. 5", "Joan Baez", and "Joan Baez In Concert No. 2" (in that order). The first and last of these were to stay in and around the Top 10 all through August and September, by which time she had another hit single with Dylan`s "It`s All Over Now, Baby Blue", while he rode the charts with the 6-minute long single "Like A Rolling Stone".

NME commentary for the last eight weeks:

Baez wasn`t the only Dylan-associated artist straddling both charts. The Byrds` "Mr. Tambourine Man" had been a No. 1 single and a No. 5 album; now Dylan`s "All I Really Want To Do" went Top 10 for them and Cher, giving her a hit album, too. Manfred Mann, after a hit EP featuring "With God On Our Side", went Top 3 with the Dylan song, "If You Gotta Go Go Now", and LP-charted in October. Donovan, "Britain`s Dylan", now had a hit album too, while Baez had yet another in "Farewell Angelina" - again a Dylan title.

NME chart commentary for the last 4 weeks:

On the other hand "The Sound Of Music", "Mary Poppins", Andy Williams, Tony Bennett, Dudley Moore and "My Fair Lady" told a different Christmas story. That Elvis Presley`s album couldn`t sustain its place in the Top 10 on the big day reflected two trends: first, it was a ragbag collection of tracks, typifing his label`s disrespect for his catalogue; second, it mirrowed his falling status, both because of all the awful formula-movies he`d been making and because, since the birth of the Beatles, he was yesterday`s man. The Beatles still ruled - they had a new No. 1 LP and the No. 1 single ("Day Tripper/We Can Work It Out"). If Mary and Tony and Andy (and even Elvis) suggested Christmas past, and the Beatles the Christmas present, one future was surely hinted at by the puns lurking unsubtlely in both the Beatles` single title "Day Tripper" and the title of the Stones` latest LP "Out Of Our Heads".
