Reissue Releases

The reissue single is a new edition of a single, typically with a new catalog number and hit songs on both side. Oddly enough, although the practice is common in many parts of the world and for many artists, Cliff Richard has had very few reissue singles in the UK.

The first known UK reissue singles are from a February 1982 release of a boxed set of 12 of Cliff's hit 7" singles. The box set, simply titled Cliff, comes in faux black leather box with a clamshell lid (EMI CRBOX ONLY 1). It's interesting that a lot of effort was made to make these as near duplicates of the original releases; all singles have the same stock number as the original releases; and all singles duplicate the original labels except for Miss You Nights, Devil Woman and We Don't Talk Anymore which instead use the new beige EMI label instead. The most significant difference is that all singles are given new picture sleeves except We Don't Talk Anymore which duplicates the original sleeve. The sleeve for We Don't Talk Anymore might even be a recycled sleeve as all other sleeves come in a thin paper sleeve that opens at the top while We Don't Talk Anymore is like the original sleeve which is a harder cardboard like sleeve that opens on the side. Each of the singles in this Cliff boxed set were also sold individually in the shops and can be quite common today.

Finally, two singles, Can't Keep This Feeling In and All I Ask Of You were issued in 2003 and 2008 respectively as download singles. It's not entirely clear why these singles were issued in this format at this time.

The Night
(Cliff Richard & Hank Marvin)

Running Time: 3:24
This is the same version as the original Wind Me Up (Let Me Go) 7" single.

Early pressings of this single erroneously had The Night Is So Lonely from the 21 Today album on the B-side, rather than the normal The Night. This was apparently caught and subsequent pressings had the proper song The Night on the B-side. The erroneously pressed single was recalled and reissued with the correct B-side, however, the version with The Night Is So Lonely appears to be more common than the version with The Night. The erroneously pressed single also incorrectly credits Wind Me Up (Let Me Go) to Cliff Richard & The Shadows (The Shadows did not perform on the track); the corrected reissue single also corrected the credit to Cliff Richard alone. Thus, by looking at the performer credits of the A-side, it is simple to determine the singles. Also, in the runout groove of the erroneous single is "7XCA-28346-10" while the corrected single is "7XCA-28346-11".

Only the digipak, issued in a distinct tri-fold format, featured the duet. As this single celebrated Elton John's duets with other famous artists, it contained only such duets.

Sales Figures

Sales figures for Cliff Richard's UK singles are difficult to come by as accurate records were not always recorded. However, some information can be derived from the various awards that Cliff earned for sales of singles.

Starting in 1959, Disc, a UK based music trade paper instigated a scheme to award specially made silver discs to those records that sold over 250,000 units in the UK. Editor Gerald Marks set about contacting as many record companies as possible to try to persuade them to join up to the idea by contacting Disc with sales data on records passing the quarter of a million sales mark. It was also decided that in the extremely rare occasion when a record passed one million sales that specially made gold discs would be presented. The Young Ones received a Gold Disc for 1 million sales but the actual date of award is not recorded by Disc. I Love You was the fiftieth title to be awarded a Silver Disc. I'm Looking Out The Window/Do You Wanna Dance was the 100th to receive a Silver Disc. It is also believed that Goodbye Sam (Hello Samantha) and Power To All Our Friends may have qualified for a Silver Disc, but no hard evidence of this is currently available.

The chart below lists the Disc award winning singles, the type of award and the date the awards was recorded as earned.

Power To All Our FriendsSilver (250,000 Units)?

It should also be noted that a Silver award denotes at least 250,000 units sold. The number may have actually been considerably higher.

By 1973 the British Phonographic Industry decided to set up an "official" awards, insisting on record companies giving more accurate data for this new scheme and that sales be properly audited. It was decided to mark sales of 500,000 with some type of award too. The BPI would now give a silver disc for 250,000 sales (no change from Disc) and to award gold for 500,000 sales. The one million sales would now be awarded the new platinum disc award.

Starting in 1989 the sales threshold was revised to Silver (200,000 units), Gold (500,000 units) and now Platinum (600,000 units).

Music Charts

Cliff has now had 144 charting singles on The Official UK Singles Chart (with his own singles only), spanning more than 1200 weeks total. He has had 14 #1 singles and 58 Top Ten singles. He holds several chart records with the most famous and well known being the only artist to have at least one #1 song in each decade spanning from the 1950s to the 1990s. He was striving to mark a #1 song in the 2000s, but sadly he missed the target with his closest approach being #2 in 2006 with 21st Century Christmas/Move It.

Even with all these interesting chart facts, it should be noted that the history of the now official charts can throw some of the statistics awry. It wasn't until about 1969 that the official charts published in Record Retailer (later Music Week) became the self-proclaimed "Official" and subsequently definitive charts under The Official Charts Company, which in turn is endorsed by the British Phonographic Industry and the British Association of Record Dealers. Before that date, charts were compiled by many different entities, including Record Mirror and New Musical Express (aka NME). Their criteria for a single's chart position may have varied radically from year to year. For example, the The Next Time/Bachelor Boy single charted on the Record Retailer (now official) chart at #1; however on the NME charts, The Next Time and Bachelor Boy charted separately, peaking at #1 and #3 respectively. The method for a single's or song's position could vary radically, based upon store sales of records and sheet music and/or radio airplay. It wasn't until 1969 that the Record Retailer charts emerged as the leading authority of the UK singles chart and as a result, all of their charts from the prior years published by Record Retailer starting in March 1960 became the official chart positions with chart positions before March 1960 (before Record Retailer was published) being taken from the NME charts instead. The Record Mirror charts and their kind are typically ignored as a result. By some accounts, the NME charts during the 1960's were considered more authoritative, such that if they were considered "official" today it would change many artists' chart statistics.

It should also be noted that at the start of Cliff's career in 1958, only the Top 30 singles from the NME charts were compiled. In March 1960, this was expanded to the Top 50 with the Record Retailer charts; and in May 1978, it was expanded to Top 75. Since then, only the Top 75 has been official. In January 1983, chart positions for 76 to 100 have also been compiled, however, the way these positions were calculated (not consistent with the Top 75) has varied greatly over the years and although they were sometimes published, they are not considered official chart positions.

A nice and much deeper description of The Official UK Singles Chart can be found HERE. Interesting facts and trivia about Cliff's chart successes can be found at William Hooper's Cliff Chart Site.

Shown here are the charts for the NME Top 30, from March 1960 to December 1969 (later chart information is not currently available). These charts, although not considered official today, were considered more accurate and more widely accepted in the 1960s. Note that although NME chart information existed prior to March 1960 and Cliff charted on them, they are not shown below because prior to that time, the NME charts are considered official and they are shown above in the Official UK Singles Chart information.

Below is a chart that shows the Official UK Singles Chart position of each song versus its week on the chart. Due to the sheer volume of songs that have charted, the chart only shows the top five or so songs for each decade. It's rather obvious from the chart that Living Doll is Cliff's biggest UK hit, having peaked at #1 for many weeks, followed by a very long run on the chart. The second most successful single is Travellin' Light, Please Don't Tease or The Young Ones, although it's not so obvious from the chart exactly which song would rank #2. Cliff's biggest international single, We Don't Talk Anymore peaked for many weeks on the UK chart, but it fell out of the charts very quickly compared to other singles.

As an interesting analysis, let's assign points to each chart placing, with chart position #1 = 30 points, #2 = 29 points, #3 = 28 points, etc. down to #30 = 1 point. Then accumulating these points for each song, the song Living Doll garners top honors with 516 points, while Travellin' Light gets 413 points, Please Don't Tease gets 403 points and The Young Ones gets 389 points. Given this, it's clear that Living Doll is Cliff's biggest UK hit of all time. This ignores chart positions beyond #30 because that is the maximum chart positions at the start of Cliff's career. The chart below illustrates this point system by ranking all Cliff's charted songs. It also color codes the songs by decade and clearly, with the 1960s shown in purple, Cliff's enjoyed most of his success in the 1960s.

Perhaps it's not surprising that in Cliff's top 20 songs calculated in this manner, all but two (We Don't Talk Anymore and The Millennium Prayer) are from 1968 or earlier. The first ten years of Cliff's career are when he enjoyed is greatest success. It is somewhat surprising that We Don't Talk Anymore didn't rank higher, considering that it is Cliff's biggest selling single ever; however it should be remembered that this statistic is based upon international sales, not just UK sales. Devil Woman is another very successful international single from Cliff's later years that, under this analysis, only ranks 58 points because the international success did not necessarily translate to UK success. Also, although it never hit #1, Cliff's biggest song of the 1980s was the #2 hit Daddy's Home and not the #1 charting songs Mistletoe And Wine or Living Doll (with The Young Ones and Hank Marvin).
