(1) Double Listing... Plus

#13 & #14 are the same (Fillmore East, June 1971). Also #9 (200 Motels) should be transferred to Frank Zappa where there is already an entry for this.

Data fixed, thanks

(5) Double Listings

These (5) albums are listed both here & under "The Mothers Of Invention". The first (4) should be transferred there. The 5th is a combination of both. 1. #20 - Freak Out! is #1 (under The Mothers). 2. #16 - We're Only In It For the Money is #2 (under The Mothers). 3. #10 - Over-Nite Sensation is #8 (under The Mothers). 4. #22 - Uncle Meat is #9 (under The Mothers). 5. #11 - One Size Fits All is #10 (under The Mothers).

What you say is right, but there could be debate about how they should be assigned. We have decided to accept your suggestion for the first 4 but have assigned the 5th to "Frank Zappa"

Thanks for the suggestion
