   UK Record & Music Weekly

Music Week is a trade paper for the UK record industry. Founded in 1959 as Record Retailer, it re-launched on 18 March 1972 as Music Week. On 17 January 1981, the title again changed, owing to the increasing importance of sell-through videos, to Music & Video Week. The rival Record Business, founded in 1978, was absorbed into Music Week in February 1983. Since April 1991, Music Week has incorporated Record Mirror, initially as a 4 or 8-page chart supplement, later as a dance supplement of articles, reviews and charts.
As this is still, albeit online, an active title, this site will focus on the pre-2000 period.
