Does anyone have acces to heavy metal charts 1979-1984 from "Sounds" Record Mirror" & "Melody Maker" ? I'm looking for highest chart positions to all NWOBHM bands singles and lp cuts that made the weekly top 20 and top 10 heavy metal charts of the aformentioned British music weekly. This will help me to narrow down what is considered the best and popular songs of the NWOBHM era bands.
