Our website went down on Sunday morning (4/7). The proper
people have been alerted and we hope to be back up and
running soon. In fact, I had hoped we'd be back up this
morning (4/9), but still nothing yet. Very frustrating as
I can't even access my personal RR e-mail account!

I'm with you. I'd love to see a book like that. But we'll have to see if Paul and Joel feel it's a viable book to print.

I'd love to see it too. The problem is that Billboard
didn't start publishing their airplay charts until
October of 1984, so a huge chunk of some great years
prior would be missing. However, never say never when it
comes to Record Research. I never thought we'd be
publishing so many non-Billboard books these past few
years, but we did!

Hmmm... I totally did not know this: "The Mainstream Top 40 (Pop Songs) chart in Billboard is actually the continuation of the R&R CHR chart. From 2006 to 2009, Billboard owned R&R, and both publications had the exact same charts." Thanks for that tidbit, JMD1961!

Logic would thus seem to indicate that the just published R&R book should perhaps one day be revised/extended beyond 2009 with the continuing Billboard Mainstream Top 40 (Pop Songs) chart data.

That could suffice until Joel/Paul give a green light to put together a Billboard Top Pop Airplay book. Fingers crossed !!

Got mine today. In the past my RR books always had binding issues
after much usage. In fact now I just reinforce the cover binding with
clear mailing tape when I first get them. Now the past three books Iíve
received all came with warped covers - both sides. Seems the covers
are getting thinner and they warp during shipping or maybe they came
that way from the publisher. Awhile ago I had the same issue and
complained. They replaced the book but it was worse than the original.
Really donít have a method to ďunwarpĒ then,

Personally Iíve not found this issue at all with the Record Research
books. They all have lovely quality paper and donít seem to fall apart or
warp.

Not sure what you mean by "warped covers", did you try
setting them on a table or something with a weight on top
for a few days?

All of my RR books are soft cover/paperback, but other
than really old ones (like the orange-cover ones from the
70s) all have stood up well.
