* Billboard noted a significant change regarding 2-sided hits beginning on the 11-29-69 chart. From that date forward, individual sides would no longer appear independently as 2-sided hits would be consolidated into a single listing. This was well and good – until they varied from that rule. These anomalies cropped up from time to time and we will note them as they appear. The listing at #78 is one such occurrence. Billboard lists this item in chart week #1, and it’s problematic because this record was charted at #41 (in week #10) the previous week. Granted, DONE TOO SOON is now apparently the dominant side but logic should indicate it is impossible that an item be a New Entry when the single was on the chart the previous week. We’ve left this New Entry in but it should not have been listed this way. It should have just appeared as a regular listing, in week #11, sitting at #78, falling from last week’s spot at #41.
