Blues Theme’ Records Has Its Ups and Downs and Ups Riding the Chart

 

 

 

 

 

NEW YORK — Blues Theme,” by Davie Allen & The Arrows is the “nuttiest record I ever had,” said Hugh Dallas, national sales manager of Tower Records.

The chart history of the record would be enough to frustrate any record man… it keeps happening in market after market, but never at the same time. The record first hit Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart on April 22 at No. 97. It climbed to 92 in a couple of weeks, then dropped off and was in the Bubbling Under a couple of more weeks before disappearing.

But the record refuses to die. It began showing sales action in another market and was “Bubbling Under” again. This week, “Blues Theme” is back at No. 99 on the chart. “It’s been No. 1 on many major station playlists, including stations in San Francisco, Seattle, and Los Angeles,” said Dallas. END
