Wallich's Music City Top 10 Flashbacks: Nov. 29 1964

On Nov. 29, 1964, Wallich's Music City initiated the top 30 Flashbacks list, a list they maintained until late Sept. 1966, when they switched to the best-selling 8 Track Tapes. This, along with the Times Square Record Shop list (as early as 1961) were among the first of the best selling oldies lists issued by shops.

Here's the first top ten:

1. Didn't It Rain - Evelyn Freeman
2. Telstar - Tornadoes
3. Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On - Jerry Lee Lewis
4. The Mountain's High - Dick & Dee Dee
5. Only Love Can Break A Heart - Gene Pitney
6. Half Heaven Half Heartache - Gene Pitney
7. Theme From A Summer Place - Percy Faith
8. Papa Oom Mow Mow - Rivingtons
9. Alley Cat - Bent Fabric
10. Louie Louie - Kingsmen

Hey, how about posting more of these flashback charts?

Good stuff.
