CLUK 1994–2010 Artist Index

Numerals Various Artists

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 Please note that these CE-pages are no longer updated.
