All-new research on records not seen in any other Record Research pop singles book!

Very Limited Print Edition

On February 23, 1959, Music Vendor magazine introduced “Beat of the Week … And Heading For the Top 100 – Popular” chart. This was 15 weeks prior to Billboard magazine introducing its “Bubbling Under” chart. Music Vendor’s chart grew to 50 positions. In April of 1964, Music Vendor became Record World and this chart was retitled “Singles Coming Up.” From 1974 until Record World’s end in 1982, while Billboard’s Bubbling Under chart featured only 10 song titles, Record World’s “ #101-150” chart hosted 40 more titles!

#101-150 Hit Records: 1959-1982 is the research of approximately 4,500 song titles that do not appear in our Top Pop Singles book, which features all songs that made Billboard’s “Hot 100” chart and “Bubbling Under the Hot 100” chart, nor do they appear in our Hit Records book, which features all songs that made the Music Vendor / Record World "Top 100" pop singles charts.

Now, finally accounted for in music history are many songs that are “Hall of Fame” classics, regional surf, hot rod, garage rock, and doo-wop. The #101-150 chart was also the home of the popular compositions of many jazz and blues artists. These along with thousands of obscurities are thoroughly researched. Also appearing is the B-side of every single, plus a biography for every new artist. Here’s a sampling of classics that now have chart data:
