Confused much?[edit]

OK. The Kent Music Report did not actually begin publishing record sales officially until May of 1974. Any of David Kent's records before that were just 'retro-calculated' from local sales, whereas the Go-Set charts were the official national charts for Australia related popular music. Go-Set was the official chart from 1966 to August of 1974, meaning if a song got to number one, it officially counted. It ran concurrently with the Kent Music Report for 3 months, because his records started before Go-Set's abandonment. So anything published in the Kent Music Report before 1974 should not be counted. But for example, Daddy Cool's "Eagle Rock" was not published in Kent Music Report in 1971 as it never existed, but it got to #1 on the Go-Set charts. While Wikipedia states it's a number one hit, Wikipedia should probably be acknowledging Go-Set as the reference.PeterMan844 (talk) 03:56, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
