Now In Stock: "The Whitburn Book of Top 10 Hits 1950-2020"

"Countless hours spent pouring over charts, printouts, screens - listening to hundreds of thousands of recordings - and then, in a flash, 50 years have passed!  It feels like it was just last month when I held a copy of “Record Research,” my first book.  Since then, in authoring over 300 books and scores of projects, I’ve had the pleasure of following thousands of songs and artists up and down 130 years’ worth of charts. So many changes in music, media, and charts!  One thing that’s not changed:  every week when I get the advanced “Hot 100” chart,  I still feel like a kid in a candy store!"

Joel Whitburn
What better way to celebrate 50 years of researching the charts than to offer the 16th edition of Top Pop Singles at $25 Off through June 15, 2020!
