This book was published in 2009, and consists of two big sections:
Annual Top 100 Charts: These charts may differ from some of the year-end charts previously published in "Kent Music Report", "Australian Music Report" or "Australian Chart Book 1970-1992". The previously published charts were usually based on calendar years, and various different formulas were used in their compilation. One problem with calendar-year charts is that the hit status of those songs and records whose chart life spanned the weeks in December-January was not fully recognized. To overcome this problem, I have used a formula which allows such songs or records to be included in one year only: this is usually the year in which the song or record reached its highest position in the weekly charts, or had its longer run with the weekly top 20. From 2006 onward, the year is that in which the record first reached the top 20. Please see sample page
Chronological Chart Entries: is basically one long list of all songs or records that have reached the charts for the 69 years from 1940 to 2008. A total of 23,786 titles.
