End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Hi all, I've been able to obtain all the end of year Aria countdowns that Rage aired between 1988 and 2004. I'm currently in the process of transfering them to DVD. So far I've done 1999, 2001, 2003 and 2005. These are all good quality recordings in hi fi stereo. The tapes these came from dont look like they have been played much at all. The 89 countdown has a very authentic audio of they way the abc used to sound. I still have many tapes to transfer still but when the process is complete in the coming months then I'm happy to make DVD copies available for those that are seeking these recordings also. It's just going to take some time but thought I'd post about it now and share the transfering process with like minded people.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

I am after the 50 to 41 inclusive section of the top 50 of 1988. I know there are a lot of clips missing from the top 40 (or at least on the recording I have), but I'd like it to re-do my 'rage top 50 of 1988 (40 to 1)' video.

Actually, might as well plug my uploads here. I've made some video countdowns of the annual charts from 1980 to 1999 inclusive so far:

I've also done 1990-1999, which are probably of less interest to people here, but you can find by searching for 'rage top 50 of (year)'.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Hi Nath,the 88 countdown I have hasn't come from the tapes I've got but from a DVD from a seperate source to the tapes. The 88 countdown I have starts at 40. Do you think only the top 40 was broadcast for that year or maybe the copy we have originated from the same source?

To my knowledge, rage always aired a top 50 on Saturday mornings back then, so it would be unusual for them to only air the top 40, but it's possible.

At least in the fist half of 1989, they'd only repeat the top 30 on Sunday morning; sometimes starting somewhere in the 20's if the special beforehand ran overtime.

Maybe this top 40 portion we have was the Sunday morning repeat? But they didn't air the top 40 on Sunday back then, I'm pretty sure; only the top 30.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

I'm really not sure myself either, a top 40 doesn't really fit in to what we recall, maybe someone else can help us figure it out?

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Nathan, this is great. When did you do these? Lately, i've been watching Billboards Top 100 end of year charts. Pretty much mid 70's to 2003. I was always wondering if there was an Oz one. This is pretty darn close. Now i have something to watch and listen to while on the treadmill at the gym. 😃

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Hi Nathan

Excellent news - I am really pleased someone is going to this trouble - yes I will certainly be very interested in DVD copies once you have them done. Please keep us posted.

Regards

Brett

I did the rage 1988 one in 2015 I think, followed by a couple of weekly charts I had as well from 1989 and 1990. Then I did the top 60 of 1990 one to coincide with Gavin's last chart blog post for 1990.

I did some more last December. And, being slightly bereft of new ideas for things to upload to YouTube, have done 1980 to 1986 inclusive in the last few months. I'm working on a 1979 one at the moment, which I might finish tonight or in the next few days.

I'm not sure whether I'll go much further beyond 1979 (several songs in this one are new to me, and I've had to rely on YouTube to source about 20 of the clips) or 1999 (I lost interest in most chart music long before then), or whether I'll do some more lower half of the top 100 for years other than 1989 (a full top 100 of 1988 from ARIA has never been published, but I might ask at some point if I can obtain such a list from them - if Gavin doesn't ask first).

edit - oops, I'm not sure if you were replying to me or the 'other' Nathan

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Hi Michael, I only obtained the tapes late last week. I've come across a few tapes with end of year rage countdowns on them, although some have been ok, I've never seen recordings of this quality before. It's a lot of fun looking back at old charts. I remember getting an Aria chart at my local record bar every chance I got. It was a top 50 album and singles chart you could take home and salivate over, lol.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Hi Brett, I sure will keep you posted, no worries at all. I still have several tapes to transfer but if all goes well I hope to have them done in a week. I'll need another week to make my own copies but after that I should be good to help you out. There's lots to transfer but definitely worth investing the time to do.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

I do plan on watching more of your videos as I've already seen a few of them. You've put quite a bit of work into them. When did you do your first one Nath?

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

11 November 2014, but that was for a weekly chart countdown (19 November 1989).

The first annual chart one I uploaded was on 2 July 2015; the top 50 (or rather, 40) of 1988.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Have almost watched them all. I didn't even notice! The 1979 Top 50 is my fave...and yes Nathan, it was you who I was talking to earlier in the post, but still happy for the other Nathan to put in his 2 cents worth.

The 1979 one is my current favourite, too. Probably because I didn't know some of the songs already/they were 'new' to me (or the videos/performances were), so not as done-to-death as many of the songs that appear in later countdowns have been.

I haven't posted links to my 90s countdowns in this thread, but recently I did one for no. 100 to 61 for 1991, and I'm uploading no's 100 to 61 for 1990 as we speak.

I always kind of feel they're a bit of a chore to compile (normally it takes at least 3 hours), but at some point I'll probably do no's 100 to 51 for the remaining 80s years, and might do one for 1978 too - though think I'll need to download about half of the videos for 1978 from YouTube. Think I had to source about 20 videos for the 1979 countdown from YouTube.

I replaced the audio for a couple of the mono rage-sourced clips for the 1979 one with mp3, as the sound was so bad (Cool For Cats, I Don't Like Mondays, Some Girls, I Was Made for Loving You). Wish I'd done that now for a few of the countdowns I compiled for later years.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

I'm pleased to report that I've transferred all the end of year countdowns to my hard drive and archived them to disc. I've also included clips that aired before and after some countdowns but just with the countdowns the duration is 50 hours spread over 50 discs. I'm keen to get these recordings off my hard drive in the next couple of months as their taking up quite a bit of much needed space but I'm ready to help anyone out that also wants these recordings. Please email me so we can discuss the details, cheers.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Probably of less interest to people here, but here's a couple of early 90s annual ARIA chart videos I've compiled:

I have just received copies of all the Aria end of year charts on DVD and I must say Nathan has done a superb job - I am very pleased with the quality on all the ones I have watched, as good as what will ever be obtained from VHS sources, exceptionally good. It is hard to find footage of material from this era, especially late 80s, in decent condition these days and I would recommend these to anyone who would like to obtain them. Thanks again Nathan!!

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

I can support what Brett said as Nathan has done several of these Rage Top 50s for me as well. They are of outstanding picture and sound quality - especially the 89,90 ones I have.

They are probably the best I've ever seen a Top 50 look sourced from a VHS tape - very high standard and worth checking out. Nathan did a great job with them and anyone after some Top 50s in great condition should go to him about copies - fantastic work.

Done because no-one seems to have the full rage top 50 for that year, and it is missing several videos rage didn't air, anyway (at least on the copy I have).

(*this was the compiler of the Australian chart from May 1974. ARIA licensed the top 50 portion of their chart from mid-1983 until June 1988. As I wasn't able to obtain positions 51-100 for the annual chart for 1988 from ARIA, I've resorted to making a video based on this chart. Only singles that did not make the ARIA top 50 of the year are featured).

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Hey all, Thank you Brett and Patrick for the feedback, I'm really pleased you guys are happy and think as much of these recordings as I do I've never seen VHS recordings from Rage look and sound as good as these do so I wanted to share this video I've made up which shows a sample of each Rage countdown/tape so everyone can see for themselves how amazing the quality is. I only used a camera to upload this but despite that it still shows the amazing quality that's nothing short of a miracle! Their a genuine pleasure to watch as they make the songs come to life like never before. Just looking at the rage graphics you can see how crisp the vision is. I believe they were all recorded onto 4 hour chrome BASF tapes using a high end HI-FI VCR and it looks as if these tapes were never played again as they have no tears or technical issues which we all know VHS is prone too. See the link below and feel free to email me if you want to obtain some or all of these rare quality recordings of all end of year Rage Aria Countdowns between 1988 and 2005.

Cheers

Nathan, YouTube changed a couple of months back where, when you click on your video in the My Videos section of your channel (or whatever it's called, while logged in), the videos now take you to the editing page rather than straight to the video itself. Yet another google "improvement' where it now takes you 2 clicks to do something, when it used to only take one.

To embed URL's here, you just type [ url ] (web address) [ /url ] (minus the spaces either side of the square bracket) either side of the URL, e.g.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ky9IKe-vsCY

The link above should work.

edit - yes, it does.

Interesting to hear (I assume) your narration for each year - I was thinking of doing that with my recent 'Australian Music Report top 100 singles of 1988' video at the start, when I explain why there's no ARIA top 100 end of year chart for that year. But then I didn't like how my voice sounded on my recording attempts.


PS, do you intend to do a rage top 50 of 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, like mine, at some point? I'm happy for you to do this, if you want, given I have much less interest in the music from those years (alternatively, I could make them at some point if I get hold of your footage). A tip for compiling it if you do - normally you can put up to about 16 seconds of consecutive audio from a song before YouTube's copyright detection system will pick it up, if there are any issues with videos/audio being blocked, etc. It's why I only have 15 point something seconds of most of the clips in my top 50/60/100 annual chart videos, although the top 100 of 1989 one picked up Wet Wet Wet's 'Sweet Surrender' and the top 50 of 1981 one picked up Devo (where I feature three 15-second segments of videos for tracks on the Dev-O Live EP), still. But neither video is blocked, thankfully.

I actually have one or two videos I kept from the top 50 of 2005 chart, recorded on DVD Recorder with an analogue in signal.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

I like the work presented so far and it has jogged long forgotten memories as well. I am curious as to how far back it is feasible to go in terms of years 1978 and before and the such like?

The Kent Music Reports commenced in May 1974 as Australia's national chart, and there were annual charts thereafter. The Kent Report end of year charts though were calculated using a points system, based on chart runs, than on actual sales. Although there would often be a good correlation between the two, sometimes this resulted in anomalies, like Bruce Springsteen's 'Dancing In the Dark' being the #1 single of 1984 (due largely to its long chart run) despite only peaking #5, beating things like Stevie Wonder's 'I Just Called To Say I Love You', which, from memory, spent 8 weeks at #1. It seems unlikely that Bruce would have actually outsold this, for example. This being said, the ARIA end of year charts (commencing in 1988) were sales-based, and Guns N' Roses' 'November Rain' was the #2 singles of 1992 despite peaking at #5 (but had a mammoth run in the top 10).

David Kent, who produced the Kent Music Report, later back-calculated charts to 1970, for his 1970-1992 book, and then all the way back to 1940, though the 1940s are monthly rather than weekly charts from memory. I don't consider these back-calculated charts to be 'official', as they were not published at the time, and I don't know what he based the data on.

Prior to the Kent Report, the Go-Set chart was Australia's official chart, and I think commenced in 1966 or thereabouts. I don't have any data for this chart, or even know whether they published an annual chart.

Someone has kindly posted the Kent Report top 100's for each year of the 1970s on a chart forum (I can give you the link if you like), so I could theoretically do a video for each year back to 1970. The trouble is though, the further back I go, often it becomes harder to source videos - official videos may not exist in that era, though I can use performances in their place - but it all depends on what is on YouTube, and (ideally) how good the quality is. I resort to using YouTube if I don't have a copy of the video, or if what's uploaded there (e.g. on a Vevo channel) is significantly better quality than I have.

I'm still doing videos for the lower half of the top 100 for each year of the 1980s, and may finish this (plus some more 90s years) before I go further back than 1979. I definitely want to do one for 1978 though, as it's my birth year

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Hey Nathan, loving these! I do like the 100-51 tracks as there are one or two songs I hadn't heard of. I was thinking, me being an 80s compilation junkie, can you do a sippet of songs for some 80s compilations? I was thinking do one for 'Summer'88' (30 years ago to date these songs would have been in the charts) and 'Pump It Up'88?

That's a great idea, Michael!

If I do such videos, I think I'll leave it though until I'm done with these chart countdown videos, unless I just do one or two.

I haven't linked them here, but I've done 100 to 51 (or 61 for the years rage aired a top 60) for 1990 to 1995 inclusive, too. I'm about half way through a 1996 one. My interest in chart music wanes after then... but I might still do a few later years at some point.

I'm also looking to do a 100 to 51 for 1981 soon.

I'm debating whether to do 1978, when I get to it, as separate top 50 and 100 to 51 videos, or do the whole top 100 video as one (which would then be about 29 minutes long ).

There are a few songs I didn't know either, compiling these. In general I think I like the 100 to 51 videos more, as they contain more forgotten gems and fewer overplayed tracks.

It's surprising to see a couple of 'big' hits missed these top 100 charts altogether, such as Simple Minds' 'Glittering Prize' (#9), INXS's 'Don't Change' (#14) and Hall & Oates' 'Maneater' (#4), whereas some peaking as low as #25 made the list! The Kent Music Report era annual charts though were based on chart runs, rather than actual sales. 'Glittering Prize' only spent 10 weeks in the top 40, which is low for a top 10 hit. 'Maneater' peaked in December - its success was split evenly between 1982 and 1983, but it didn't stick around long enough to make either year's end of year top 100. I'm sure if they were sales-based it would have. 'Don't Change' similarly peaked at the end of December/start of January and its chart run was split between two years.

It's also surprising to see a couple of 'classics', like 'Solid Rock' missed the top 50 (but was placed in the 50's for two consecutive years). 'Great Southern Land' being placed at #59 also seems a bit of a shock.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Yep, just do the two compilations for now and then keep us in suspense.

There will be some videos from the compilations that I don't have. I've had to resort to sourcing several videos from YouTube for my end of year chart videos; especially for the 1979 one I did.

Thank you for your prompt and informative reply to my earlier question. I apologize for my tardiness as my health has not been good these past couple of weeks. Your response was as usual from you a well thought out and informative one and I do appreciate that. I know from my birth week in 1970 TWO responses will usually feature as the #1 record one by Elvis and the other by another "E" Edwin Starr, depending on both the sales tabulation method chosen.

A factor as to chart position that I am thinking of is this: that chart volatility occurs like stock market share volatility during periods of high volumes, this might be the case of a single stuck at say #5 for a busy week in an atypical month of higher than usual sales; that also places it much higher in the overall chart calculations for the year, it could go some ways as to explain some oddities at the end of the year.

Once again thank you for your response to my enquiry.

You mean long-worded and windy

Hope your health is on the mend. I don't expect replies to posts here, so no need to apologise.

Re: End of year Aria Rage countdowns

Gavin who posts the chart posts here informed me that rage did indeed air the full top 50 of 1988 chart, rather than just a top 40 as I and a few others here have sourced. However, it was also missing several videos, as on the top 40 copy we have, such as 'Get Outta My Dreams...' and 'Whenever You Need Somebody'. He used to have it on VHS.

I can't say with certainty, because I wasn't really aware of rage until early 1988, but from what I've read here and elsewhere, rage didn't start airing the top 50 until January 1988... which would suggest to me that no top 50 of 1987 chart was aired.

I compiled a video for singles that peaked within the top 10 during the 80s, but missed the end of year top 100 charts - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqQBgJSirr0 . Also included, towards the end, are singles peaking at #11 during the 80s that missed the end of year charts.

Nice and any update on doing some snippets of tracks from 80s compilations? starting with 'Summer '88?
