Cher's Greatest Hits

There are (3) distinct Albums with this title. They are from 1974, 1992 & 1999. To make them more accurate the following should be done. #2 - Cher's Greatest Hits (1999) - transfer the Chart Entry UK 3 X Platinum (Jan. 1993) from here to #7 - Cher's Greatest Hits 1965-1992. Also transfer the Chart Entry Xgau B+ from here to #26 Greatest Hits (1974). Then transfer the Chart Entry from #7 (1992) - Australia (ARIA) 56 of 1999 - to #2 (1999). Finally transfer the Chart Entry from #16 - Billboard 57 - 23 weeks to #2 (1999). Sounds confusing ,I know, but this should do the trick.

We've tried to do that, hopefully correctly

Thanks

#14 (Sonny Side Of Cher) should be combined with #2 under Duets (w/Sonny &Cher). Also #12 & #17 under Duets are the same (VH1 Divas Live 1999).
