The book compiles all charts appearing in Cash Box magazine prior to 1989 which have not appeared in the earlier volumes of this chart series. Genres and media formats covered include twelve-inch disco/dance singles, midline albums, video games, compact discs (prior to their integration into the "Top 200 Album Chart"), video clips, videotape sales, and jukebox activity. Alphabetically-arranged title and artist (where relevant) indexes have been included for each chart section, along with appropriate "see also" references. The various sections also feature concise, informative introductions to the genre or medium being covered. The chart data cites not only chart entry dates and total weeks on the chart, but a week-by-week notation of chart positions attained by each title (a feature unique to Scarecrow Cash Box series).
