Missing Billboard Data

The following (3) albums made the Billboard charts. #49 - Crosby & Nash -Graham Nash/David Crosby - 4 - 26 weeks. #84 - Wendy Carlos - A Clockwork Orange - 34 - 31 weeks. Probably listed under 'Movie Soundtracks/Walter Carlos'. And finally #98 - Osibisa - Woyaya - 66 - 17 weeks (listed as 'Wcyaya).

Data fixed, thanks

#55 - Joni Mitchell - For the Roses

Per quanto possiamo vedere che non mai stata un successo sul web

Concert for Bangla Desh

... Is listed at 48 and 49 in the 1972 album list ... I assume merging them will push it up the chart further

You are right, the data has been corrected, thanks for the input
