Thankyou very much for your help, Malco!!!

According to the Greatest Hits-cd (2003) Pay You Back With Interest was a hit in Australia, but it must have benn in NZ. As I undetstand it The Hollies also had Son of rotten gambler,The Baby and Star on the Australian charts but on low positions.

Any comments on that?

Bonus, these songs that you mentioned may have made the lower reaches of the charts of various states but did not make the national Australian charts.

I did a google search, and came up with this link. Using this info, it should be easy to research chart success for artists in Australia. At least from 1966 through 1974, that is.

Thanks SpartyScott! This link to the charts from Go-set is the one Im reffering to. But is it the the official australian chart or is there another?

Anyhow, looking at the Go-set-charts is a real joy!
