#5 - Duran Duran (The Wedding Album)

When you recently made a correction some data got combined in error. TheBillboard Chart Entry of (7 - 134 weeks - Feb 1983) should be changed to read (7 - 47 weeks - March 1993). The remaining (87) weeks are already listed on the 1981 Duran Duran album.

That looks right, fixed thanks

(2) Double Listings...Plus

#7 & #18 are the same (Greatest Hits). Also #15 & #17 (Red Carpet Massacre). Finally there are (2) distinct Albums titled 'Duran Duran', one from 1981 & one from 1993. The Billboard chart data has mistakenly been combined. On #4 - 'Duran Duran' (1981) the Billboard Chart Entry should read - #10 - 87 weeks. On #6 - 'Duran Duran (The Wedding Album)' (1993) the Billboard Chart Entry should read #7 - 47 weeks.

Data fixed, thanks

(1) Triple Listing & (1) Double Listing

#9 & #14 & #19 are all the same (Duran Duran - The Wedding Album). Also #7 & #13 are the same (Greatest).

Data fixed, thanks
