Description

Compiled and released to commemorate the 1000th UK Number 1 single, this huge title features the story behind every number one since our chart system began in 1952. Complete with glossy colour photos from the archives, discover the heritage of the British commercial music scene from Al Martino's Here In My Heart to the re-release of One Night by Elvis Presley. Learn how it is possible for the same song to enter the charts at Number 1 twice! Follow the development of the industry as singles become increasingly extravagant, leading to the 'manufactured' bands and Pop Idols of recent times.

Each entry identifies...

  • Artist and title
  • Label and catalogue number
  • Producer
  • Writer
  • Weeks at number one
A fascinating ride through the ever-changing tastes, politics and unseen forces behind our most famous songs and artists that is both candid and utterly absorbing.
