#25 - Romeo + Juliet - Original Soundtrack

There are (2) 'Romeo & Juliet' Soundtrack albums. This one from 1997 & a 1969album by Nino Rota. You have combined the Billboard data for both albums here. So.. the Chart Entry of Billboard 2 - 122 weeks needs to be removed completely. That entry should be replaced here with Billboard 2 - 48 weeks - November 1996. Then an entry of Billboard 2 - 74 weeks - Feb. 1969 should be added to the Nino Rota 1969 album (currently #53 in 1969).

The entries in the Billboard chart are all exactly the same, we've assumed your weeks are correct but also recalculated the top 10 weeks and peak dates

Thanks

#21 - Romeo + Juliet (Orig. Soundtrack)

The following (3) Chart Entries should be removed from this Album andtransferred to 1969 Romeo & Juliet Soundtrack by Nino Rota. 1. Canada 1 - 1 week (1969); 2. US Cashbox 7 of 1969; 3. US BB 8 of 1969.

That look right, data fixed, thanks
