For more than 18 years, Billboard magazine’s “Honor Roll Of Hits” charts tracked the nation’s top tunes according to record sales, sheet music sales and disk jockey airplay as determined by Billboard’s weekly nationwide surveys.
The key feature of the “Honor Roll Of Hits” chart was that it listed not only the “Best Selling Record” but also other “Records Available” for each song title. For example, for “That’ll Be The Day,” the chart showed the highly popular “Best Selling Record” by Buddy Holly’s Crickets in 1957. In addition, it also showed other “Records Available” — the very rare and now highly sought after cover versions of the same song by The Ravens, Jeff Allen, Connie Russell, and Buddy Holly & The Three Tunes (actually Buddy Holly’s 1956 pre-Crickets’ recording!).
