* The album chart - a Top 10 listing - appears for the first time on the CHUM Chart. It disappeared after the chart of October 17, 1960, but the album chart returned with a Top 5 listing on May 27, 1963. That listing ended with the chart of January 30, 1967. A CHUM album listing, but not a formal ranking, appeared on the CHUM Chart from August 10, 1968 to November 8, 1969. A top 10 album listing appeared in the chart of May 8, 1971 and continued until April 27, 1972. The following week - May 4 - it became a Top 15 listing. That continued until the last pocket-sized chart on April 26, 1975.
