K's UK No.1 SINGLES SPECIAL - VA - The Complete UK Number 1 Singles: 70 Years of the Official Singles Chart 1952-2022 [2022] PART 7 - 2010's to 2022

K's UK No.1 SINGLES SPECIAL    -   VA - The Complete UK Number 1 Singles: 70 Years of the Official Singles Chart 1952-2022 [2022] PART 7 - 2010's to 2022

So here it is... EVERY single to hit the UK number 1 spot on the Official Singles Chart over the past 70 years in this blockbuster collection!

November 14th, 2022, marked 70 years since the first singles chart was published by the New Musical Express’s Percy Dickins in 1952, topped by Al Martino’s 'Here In My Heart'.

The UK Singles Chart is a weekly record chart which for most of its history was based on single sales from Sunday to Saturday in the United Kingdom. Since July 2014 it has also incorporated streaming data, and from 10 July 2015 has been based on a Friday to Thursday week. As of 14th November 2022, 1,404 singles have reached number one. The chart was founded in 1952 by Percy Dickins of New Musical Express (NME), who telephoned 20 record stores to ask what their top 10 highest-selling singles were. Dickins aggregated the results into a top 12 hit parade, which was topped by 'Here in My Heart' by Al Martino. NME's chart was published each week in its eponymous magazine.

Way back in 2004 I bought a single DVD-R on eBay which contained every UK number one single from 1952-2003. It was a great start to my ongoing collection which I've been adding to ever since.  Unfortunately, back in 2004 when the DVD-R was compiled most of the tracks were of poor quality at very low bitrates of 128 and below, plus many of the tracks were the incorrect versions: longer album tracks, live versions, later re-recorded versions, etc. Several were damaged or distorted mp3 files ripped from crackly, scratched old 45's, with quite a few with the beginning or the end clipped off.

Over the past 18 years I've slowly replaced a huge percentage of the tracks with much higher quality versions.  Since this year (2022) we're celebrating 70 years of the official UK singles chart, I decided to revisit my collection and pretty much recompile everything from scratch.  It's amazing just how many incorrect versions were initially included, so I made a concerted effort and through extensive research to include every UK number one hit in the correct original UK 7" single version as the songs appeared on the charts at the time. All double 'A' sides are included, along with a few EPs.  Now, most of the tracks feature the highest quality, and best sounding digital remasters released to date, far superior to the original collection.

Hope you enjoy this amazing compilation of over 1,400 number one singles from 14th November 1952 to 14th November 2022. The complete 70 year collection has been broken down year by year into folders. It would amount to an 80 CD set as it currently stands at 3.5 days, which is 84 hours worth of music!

  7. I did notice that a couple of these were not in 320kbps. Anytime you need help getting a higher quality mp3, please feel free to ask if I have it (or someone else on this list, I'm sure) I'd be happy to supply it if I've got it. That way everyone else can get the higher quality stuff. Usually not an issue for your stuff, but noticed several at down to 128. I replace them for myself any way, might as well do it for everyone

    1. Thanks Pol,
      I did mention that I replaced a considerable number of tracks with the correct 7” 45 single versions and at higher bitrates, but it was impossible to replace everything - just too much work.

      When some of the later years (2005 to about 2011) were compiled, 128 was really all that was available as storage space was so expensive, so most were ripping at lower bitrates to save on space.

      From about 2012 onwards storage became much cheaper, plus the overall demand for higher bitrates became the norm.

      I probably have most of the 128s at 320 now as the years have progressed, but I just haven’t had the time to go back through over 1,400 tracks and replace some that are at lower bitrates.

      It’s taken me over 18 years to pull together somewhat of a decent collection. I realise not everything is at 320, but from where I started in 2004, it’s a million times better than the quality of the files on the DVD-R, plus every single track is the correct 7” 45 / CD single / digital download version that was played on BBC Radio at the time and purchased by record buyers, which in itself has been a momentous task with exhaustive and extensive research in making 100% certain all tracks are the official ‘single’ versions and no longer album tracks, re-recordings, remixes, etc.

  10. Thanks K for all your hard work on this. I was wondering if you'll be adding a new folder each year as we go forward. You obviously follow the charts more than I do! :)

  11. Thanks K & BUTTERBOY for sharing this collection with us. WOOOOW, this is just beautiful. I came across this series here a few days ago and immediately downloaded it. This is simply a blueprint of music evolution over 70 years. Most of these songs make me dream back to my youth (I was born in January 1960!!). This is simply a beautiful series that deserves more than a 10!!!!!
    THANKS AGAIN & KEEP IT SAFE
