The readers’ charts in Bravo of 1 September 1977. Almost all of the English hits were favourites of mine; of the German hits I liked only two, the #2 (a German version of The Bellamy Brothers’ Crossfire) and Michael Holm’s Desperado (not the Eagles song).
Four of them featured on A Life In Vinyl 1977
The readers’ charts in Bravo of 21 August 1980. I didn’t have many of the Bravo charts, but at some timer have had all of the UK Top 10.
The readers’ charts in Bravo of 10 August 1978. I had 12 of the international entries (none of the German hits).
The readers’ charts in Bravo of 24 July 1975.
The readers’ charts in Bravo of 1 June 1978. I had 11 of the English hits on record, and was very excited when Blondie’s “Denis” became a hit.
The readers’ charts in Bravo of 17 May 1979.
The readers’ charts in Bravo of 22 April 1976. At #1 in the German charts is Frank Farian, who’d find even greater success as the producer of Boney M. And coming in at #20 is Michael Holm with a German take on disco-soul.
The readers’ charts in Bravo of 17 March 1977. There’s some good stuff in the international charts (ELO, ABBA, Boston, Queen etc). But the killer track is on top of the German charts.
The charts in Bravo of 11 March 1982. On the left are the sales charts; on the right the charts as voted for by readers. Plus an item about Suzi Quatro’s backside having been voted the best for jeans at an expo for jeans manufacturers in London.
The readers’ charts in Bravo of 13 February 1975. At the top is the song which Schlager singer Michael Holm recorded in English as “When A Child Is Born”, a cover of which brought Johnny Mathis a huge Christmas hit later in the year. The melody itself is from a 1974 Italian hit called Soleado for the Daniel Sentacruz Ensemble.
