This is the Quick Guide to a series of pages containing the basic chart-records of all 61,092 entries into the UK Singles, the UK Artist Albums, the UK Compilation Albums (1998–2010), the UK Budget Albums (1997–2010), and the UK Download (2004–2006) charts during the seventeen chart years 1994–2010.
There is now a compact version of CLUK available: All the CLUK data on a single HTML file, compressed and ready for download: CLUK Compact 1994–2010. I chose RAR as compression utilty and made the file self-extractable. After checking for viruses just double-click, or rename it to .exe in order to run it on a DOS-prompt.
For 2005–2010 there are also compact updates with all CLUK data for individual chart years on separate HTML files: CLUK 2005, CLUK 2006, CLUK 2007, CLUK 2008, CLUK 2009, CLUK 2010, CLUK 2011, and CLUK 2012. Data covers the Top 200/250 Singles and Albums charts, Top 50 Compilations and Budget Albums, and for a time also the Top 40/200 Download chart. Weekly CLUK Updates: Weekly CLUK Updates: 2013, 2014.
For 1995 and the first half of 1996 more detailed data is available live on my website (see the full CLUK intro page). Please note that these CE-pages are no longer updated.
More detailed chart information (including week-by-week positions data and year-end charts) is available in the Chartwatch Annuals. They cover the years 1961–1967 and 1983–2009. For more details about downloading the PDFs or ordering the printed booklets please check the Chartwatch Annual Chart Booklets Guide.
