#4 - Ring Of +Fire - The Legend Of Johnny Cash

The following (2) 1963 Chart Entries should be removed from this 2005 album & transferred to #34 - Ring Of Fire from 1963. 1. Billboard 26 - 65 weeks - August 1963 & 2. US Cashbox 49 of 1963. This should then enable you to transfer #35 (The Legend Of Johnny Cash) to #4.

Data fixed, thanks

(5) Double Listings

#2 & #38 are the same (At Folsom Prison). Also #3 & #21 (American V: A Hundred Highways). Also #4 & #35 (Ring Of Fire - The Legend Of Johnny Cash). Also #17 & #39 (This should read 'Johnny Cash's Greatest Hits, Volume I) not Volume III per Joel Whitburn. Finally #42 & #74 (The Legend Of Johnny Cash: Vol. II).

The Billboard chart listing has "Johnny Cash's Greatest Hits,volume III" entering the Hot200 at 200 on 22 Jul 1967 (not Volume I) so we are not changing that

We've done the rest, thanks
