On this day in 1962, the West Side Story soundtrack went to number 1 on the US chart. Over the course of the next few years the album would revisit the top spot on several occasions. To date, it’s been in the top position (in the US) for a total of 54 weeks! According to AllMusic that’s the most weeks spent at #1 by any album, EVER.
