The list is starting to take shape although there a quite a few gaps. If anyone can supply more info it will be included here and credited.
The UK chart positions were compiled by BMRB (British Market Research Bureau) during the 1970's and were the officially recognised charts used by the music industry at that time.
The German & Belgium chart positions were supplied by Ulrich. Thanks to him for the info.
The French chart info was supplied by Bas
It's worth mentioning that Rubettes tracks have appeared on numerous compilation albums since then charting countless times. 'Sugar Baby Love was featured on the 'Simply The Best 70's album ever' which made the Top 20 here in the UK this year.
I'm still hoping that visitors to this site from other countries will come up with similar information which can be posted here.

Coming soon Kinks, Monkees & Billy Fury
