1966 UK Record Releases by Date
This is a list of all UK 45 singles and EP’s found on the 45 cat website and any new release sheets as of the 15/03/2016.
Generally records that don't have a full release are not included. Some spoken word only records are not listed, plus
“story” ones. Records that would have had a specific week when they were fist released, but which dates have not been
found, but are known to have been issued on an actual month are included at the end of each weekly listing for the month
in question.
Numbers in red indicate ownership on 45 cat for those with 5 or more. In some cases, such as chart hits, the number of
“wants” is added on. Caution should be noted with ownership figure, as the record might have only been available as a
promo record that wasn’t issued to the public. These however will be popular with collectors of records. If it is known to be
never issued to the public, what is called on the 45 Cat site as a “stock” record. Then that will not be included. In some
cases records by well known acts were never issued as “stock” and some of these have been included, but such records
are shown as “promo only”. They are included to show that the record couldn’t have made the charts in 1966. At least as a
UK issue!
Records that made the charts of the time are only stated where no specific week has been found or if a chart record fails
to score 5 ownership indications - indicated by the term hit. Any number that follows is an ownership indication not a chart
position. In order that a release date might be pinned down further, if known a “pop” paper review date might be shown.
This might indicate that record was issued the week previous or the week following the date.
Only A sides are listed. AA sides are also listed. Records were generally released on a Friday during the period.
Any record listed only by the year 1966 on the 45 cat site are not included in this list. As such records could have been
issued in 1967 or later. Up to the first half of 1966, records released could have the year 1965 on them.
Release date information is obtained from two sources. Firstly marked promo records and secondly from printed sources,
such as new release sheets. Both of theses were subject to variation and change.
Artists are listed first then the title shown in italics. EP tracks are not all listed. If the title of the EP does not include an
actual song that is on it, then the first track will be listed, or the most important one.
