Note that not all of Berry's UK singles were released in the same year as the initial U.S. release, and not all of Berry's UK singles featured the same A-Side/B-Side configurations as in the U.S.

Billboard did not publish a separate R&B singles chart in 1964. For this year only, R&B chart positions are from Cash Box magazine.[9]
