Hi everyone, I know there's a book out there called The complete New Zealand music charts, 1966-2006, but it's too expensive. I was wondering if anyone owned the book and could tell me if there are any certifications for either Cher or Sonny and Cher in there? Hope someone can help! Thanks!
Hi I have Dean's book and it's well worth the money you spend on it. Cher has had two gold singles (Shoop Shoop Song from 191 and Believe from 1999. All of her chart albums went platinum. Certifications of Sonny and Cher were not recorded on charts in New Zealand back then. Dean himself who also visits this site might be able to help
Thanks Tempest, I recently found this online, could you please confirm if this is true and say which albums are platinum/2x platinum etc? As well, are there any albums that are in the book that are not in this list? Thanks!

Tempest, do you think you could please post all of Sonny and Cher's chart positions (albums/singles) with weeks on chart? I found this for Cher, could you confirm if this is correct, and complete the discograhy if any is missing. As well, could you please tell me if You Better Sit Down Kids did in fact chart in New Zealand? Thanks!
