FOR SALE ITEMS - "NEW SINGLES"

     The weekly UK publication "New Singles" began in November 1963 as a spin-off from "New Records". Its purpose was to list all known 45 rpm singles issued in any one week, as notified to the publisher by record companies, both large and small; issues also included a back-listing of the previous two or three weeks singles' releases. "New Singles" is a very useful source of information, within the limits of the information received, the timeliness of that information, and the accuracy with which it was transposed to print.

     Offered are issues from three sets, the "Master Set" (see next paragraph), the "Clean Set", duplicates usually in very good to excellent condition, and the "Working Set" in lesser condition which has been extensively marked but without in anyway affecting its usefulness. If you have any questions, please ask.

     Regarding the "Master Set", this is the original RIS master set, generally very clean but some early 1970s gaps have been filled with whatever was available. Per the chart below (still a work in progress), some of this master set has already been sold, otherwise the yearly sets of "New Singles" are complete, except 4 issues are missing from 1971 (and because of a printing strike early in that year, some weeks were not published), and 2 issues are missing from 1972 (but all information is generally covered by the "back-listing" referred to above). The master set is currently wholly complete from 1973 to the end of publication in 1987.
