(4) Double Listings

#5 & #23 should be combined per Joel Whitburn (Standing On A Beach - The Singles). Also #18 & #25 are the same (The Show). Also #20 & #26 (Galore - The Singles 1987-1997). Finally #19 & #28 are the same (Greatest Hits).

Data fixed, thanks

Double Listing

Per Acclaimed Music & Wikipedia #11 (Boys Don't Cry) & #21 (Three Imaginary Boys) are basically the same album. Three Imaginary Boys was released in the US & Australia as Boys Don't Cry.

We've changed the name to "Boys Don't Cry", thanks
