#5 -+ Maybe I'm Amazed

The following (4) Chart Entries need to be removed from this 1977 Live recording and transferred to the original 1970 recording: 1. DDD 13 of 1970, 2. Rolling Stone 338, 3. Acclaimed 695 of 1970, 4. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 500.

We agree with you for the DDD and Acclaimed entries, we think the Nutsie entry should also be included, but the Rolling Stone and Rock & Roll Hall entries surely (in the absence of other evidence) should follow the most popular version (the single)

So we've created a new song "Maybe I'm Amazed (1970)" and done most of what you suggest, thanks

band on the run, etc

so many songs not even mentioned. +What about My Love, band on the run, sillylove songs, rock show, listen to what the man said.....such a horrible incomplete list

You must be from the USA (based on your suggestion that "Wings" songs should be listed under "Paul McCartney").

As it says in the second paragraph of this page the Wings hits (and The Beatles hits) are listed separately. Perhaps you should read before rushing to judgement?
