NME commentary for the last 8 weeks:

By now the real 1960s had begun, but the old guard fought on. The cash for LP-buying still belonged to adults whose ideas of good music pre-dated Rock`n`Roll. Despite the civil rights struggle in the USA (summer 1963 had seen Martin Luther King`s I Have A Dream speech) the Minstrels were back. So was Kathy Kirby, a young dance-band-era revivalist with glossy red lipstick and black seamed nylons. Mrs. Mills` image was more cleaning-lady than star; she tinkled singalongable medleys on her joanna.

NME commentary for the last 8 weeks:

Beatlemania was such that the sleevenotes of the Fab Four`s LP "Please Please Me" already sounded quaint: "Possibly", these had dared boast, "the most exciting British group since the Shadows." The LP sold in such huge numbers that it had reached No. 11 on the NME singles chart the previous December, while on 28 March 1964 the American Top 5 was all Beatles. Australian Frank Ifield, meanwhile, was nearing the end as a big star in Britain, with four No. 1 singles behind him, plus many smaller hits, 4 in 1964 alone.

NME commentary for the last eight weeks:

The Rolling Stones` debut LP also sold strongly enough to enter the singles chart, jumping straight to No. 1 in the LPs. They managed this despite ignoring co-manager Eric Easton`s advice to Andrew Loog-Oldham in 1963: "The singer", said Easton, "will have to go. The BBC won`t like him". The folk revival, a major US trend since 1961, brushed the LP chart via Peter, Paul & Mary. Bob Dylan`s LP chart debut was as their sleevenote-writer, and composer of "Blowin` In The Wind".

NME commentary for the last eight weeks:

The title "Stay With The Hollies" referred to their revival of an 88-second masterpiece by Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs, "Stay" (to re-chart in 1978 by Jackson Browne), which they followed up with Doris Troy`s "Just One Look". Chuck Berry was surprised to be charting (he was also rising high with the 45 "No Particular Place To Go"), for despite his legendary status he had gone from 1958 till 1963 with no UK hit. (His onyl No. 1 was to be 1972`s "My Ding-A-Ling", a ponderous novelty item).

NME commentary

If Chuck Berry was a relative chart stranger, rock and blues classics remained in the public ear. Berry`s "Johnny B. Goode", Little Richard songs and Muddy Waters` "Got My Mojo Working" were core repertoire for every beat group, and now they were on vinyl. The Swinging Blue Jeans had hit with "Good Golly Miss Molly", the Beatles with their "Long Tall Sally" EP, and in November the Stones would be No. 1 with "Little Red Rooster", learn from Howlin` Wolf. Oldest originator with a hit was Louis Armstrong.

NME commentary for the last 8 weeks:

Plane-crash victim Jim Reeves enjoyed phenomenal success in 1964. By October he had only two LPs in the Top 10, but there had been six of them since mid-August. In the last week of September, five of the Top 10 were Jim Reeves LPs. Another would arrive for Christmas. By year`s end, he was the artist with the most chart weeks to his credit, Beatles notwithstanding. Meanwhile November saw Bob Dylan`s first entry to the charts in his own right, with (oddly) both his second LP and his fourth.

NME commentary for the last four weeks:

Both Dylan LPs dropped out of the Top 10 after only a week but the wonder is that they had made it at all, with no chart single to stimulate sales. Every other act in the Top 10 at the time had big hit singles behind them. The Beatles, the Animals, the Kinks and Manfred Mann had allrecent No. 1s; the Bachelors had scored a No. 1 and three other Top 5 singles this year; the Supremes had had a No. 2 in September and a No. 1 earlier in November; Cliff Richard was about to get his fourth Top 10 of the year; the Hollies had already had four Top 10s in the last twelve months; Roy Orbison had just enjoyed his second No. 1 of the year; and the Stones were at No. 1 now. In contrast, Bob Dylan was not to enter the Top 10 singles chart until the following year. His success with two unsupported LPs, therefore, was something special 8211; and hinted at the changes he was almost single-handedly to bring about in the near future. Even as Beatlemania raged on both sides of the Atlantic, Dylan was to be the catalyst for the imminent split between "pop" and "rock", revolutionising what songs could say, calling radio`s bluff in demanding the 3-minute single, deposing the 45 from its pre-eminent position, and empowering the LP as a medium in its own right. Thus the LP became the album. Dylan was to change the language of the industry as well as of the song. He would even change the Beatles.
