From the Official UK Charts site.

They list the UK singles & albums, by the same performer, which were both at No.1 in the same week.

Here's a bit of the list:

Something wrong there ?

There's a lot of news cover for the 50th anniversary of the Beatles iconic photo of them using the zebra crossing in Abbey Road./b]/b]

Can you spot the error here ?

Told them umpteen times that Stan never reached the age of 91 as he died in 2015, when aged 88.

At long last, they've amended their site:

No word of apology or explanation, but at last - a result !

There just ain't no politeness in this damn world.

I spent a few years sending factual information through email to a music site, which they kept incorporating without a word of thanks or acknowledgement. I felt rewarded by the simple fact that the information was not being lost.

After dozens of emails, I once sent them one which apparently contained inexact or incorrect information, and then they rapidly answered correcting me.

That was the last email I sent them. They were just not worthy of my help, I thought.

No takers, then ?

The error was in making the Zebra Crossing Grade II listed.

The one currently in Abbey Road is not the one the Beatles were photographed on.

That original one was demolished many years ago & a new one installed in a different location in the road.

The Wooden Heart single was never at No.1 along with a No.1 album titled Elvis Presley.

The album concerned must be G.I. Blues.

In fact, they get that right for one week !

The US album titled Elvis Presley was from a different time altogether & was renamed Rock 'n' Roll in the UK anyway.

Elvis - 40th Anniversary - Record Collector - 001.jpg


In the 40th Anniversary Special issue of Record Collector, Brian Jones [a reader] was asked:

"What's your all-time favourite record, regardless of value or rarity ?"


He replied:

Elvis - Grammy Awards - Record Collector - 001.jpg


What did he get wrong there ?

Elvis did not win a Grammy for "His Hand In Mine".

It's also one of my favourite albums by him, and I believe it was his best gospel effort ever, together with the "Peace In The Valley" EP,.

You're right - His Hand in Mine didn't win any Grammy awards.

So, the bottom line is, to clean one's washing machine, we have to remove our clothes........

Those three day cycles must be chilly, especially when one explains at work, that they are naked, due to the directions they are following.

Using the Google image finder I looked for an image of Elvis & it came up with this:

Can you spot the odd-one-out there ?
