Missing Billboard Data

The following (2) albums made the Billboard charts. #43 - Technotronic - PumpUp the Jam - 10 - 55 weeks. Listed as 'Pump Up the Jam - The Album'. Also #44 - Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks - 22 - 25 weeks. Probably listed under 'Television Soundtracks'.

Data fixed,thanks (Twin Peaks was wrongly listed under Angelo Branduardi)

#100 - Miss Saigon

This should read Original Cast (rather than Original Soundtrack).

Data fixed, thanks
