(2) Double Listings - Legend & Live

#1 and #10 are the same album. Also #8 and #15.

You are certainly correct about the "Legend" album, those entries have been fixed.

The "Live" album is more difficult. Some of the entries do seem to belong to "Bob Marley & The Wailers Live!" but others could be "Live At The Lyceum" or "Live at the Roxy". We've made an attempt to fix the data

Thanks for the suggestion
