yes, I believe Heart and Soul was # 24 and Surf City # 26.

In September 1963, Billboard published "Surf City" as being #23 in Britain.

Stepping outside of Europe . . . In August 1963, Billboard -- citing Music Maker out of Sydney -- published "Surf City" as being #1 in Australia.

In October 1963, Billboard -- again citing Music Maker out of Sydney -- published "Honolulu Lulu" as being #12 in Australia.

How about Japan?  Japan managed to release one of the rarest of Jan & Dean's LPs.  There must have been some lasting demand as  J&D LPs were being repressed in Japan during the early 1980s.

Thank you  for the answers so far.   Another question  did any of their albums charted outside  of USA/Canada?
