i just got my three volumes of 'Australian Chart Book' in the mail today. its pretty much the same set up as UK 'guiness book of charts' & 'billboard' chart books detailing all singles and album entries in the charts along with biggest sellers from each year etc etc.
its taken a long time to track these down,but i guess i hit paydirt with them.
volume 1 1940-1969
volume 2 1970-1992
volume 3 1993-2009
