Those were all No. 1 on the R & B charts, not the Billboard Hot 100.Sooooooooo....because it's colored race music it doesn't count?
The designation "No. 1 record" applies to the Billboard Hot 100, which has been the standard for decades. Being No. 1 on the R & B chart is like being No. 1 on the Easy Listening chart. It's competition limited to a particular genre of music.
Kind of like the difference between an "All-America" football player and a Small College All-America football player.
It's not the "white mans chart," it's the chart, the one that's always cited.
Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification. However, they still went to the top of the charts even if it was "only" a sub-genre. Maybe they could get the band back together and try to get on top of the white mans chart
By the way, KC & The Sunshine Band had four No. 1 hits on the Billboard R & B chart, and front man KC is only slightly less white than Bob Backlund.
