Yes I also used to write them down 1972/1974 - they seem to very popular on searches: I posted a few 1972 charts on my wordpress popchartfreak webpage and they often get hits from all over Europe. Someone did have a whole website devoted to them 1974 onwards but it got taken down so I'm guessing there isnt one at the moment. I hope you post them all as it would be a nice historic memento before we all depart this mortal coil - unless the current owners of what was Radio Luxembourg still has them - but if they do they show no interest in publishing anywhere..?

fab charts here, I recall loving all these tracks that fell short of the UK top 30, that was the entire appeal of the Luxy charts, you got an idea what was almost a "hit". Googling Radio Luxembourg charts still brings up only my previous posts:
Not every UK chart hit was listed in Radio Luxembourg's charts, for instance around this time Judge Dread had an number 11 hit in August 1972, but it won't appear on their charts. Some re-issues of hits from previous year's are also absent.
29th August 1972
1 1 4 Rod Stewart - You Wear It Well 
2 NE 1 Slade - Mama Weer All Crazee Now 
3 2 4 Mott The Hoople - All The Young Dudes 
4 4 4 Derick & Dominoes - Layla 
5 3 8 Alice Cooper -School's Out 
6 10 3 Blackfoot Sue - Standing In The Road 
7 5 6 Electric Light Orchestra - 10538 Overture

all of these tracks totally familiar to me, as I recorded them all on reel-to-reel tape off Fluff Freeman's show and others - except for Bobby Hebb! I don't recall hearing it at all, ever, which is quite something even for a Northern Soul hit - they didnt always cross over to radio airplay, but don't even recall it on Luxy....
