#18 & #38 are the same (Time Pieces, The Best Of). Also #36 should be combined with #3 (under Duets w/Cream - The Cream Of Clapton). Finally #44 (Rush) also made the Billboard charts (#24 - 31 weeks). Listed under 'Movie Soundtracks'.

Data fixed, thanks

New Clapton Albums

Hi there, please update the list for new albums, including "Old Sock" (2013),"The Breeze" (2014), "Forver Man" and "Slowhand at 70: Live at the Royal Albert Hall" (2015). Also, the certifications could be updated too, like it is on Wikipedia, in Germany for example, "Unplugged" has been certified 5x Gold (1.250.000 sold units), not 2x Platinum (1 Million) anymore. Cheers! :-)

You don't understand how this site operates. We get a range of source charts and process them, we don't put any entries in for specific acts (that would bias the results towards the acts we focused on). So we have no listing for songs or albums that have never been hits.

If you can suggest complete charts (maybe from new countries or covering years we are short of) in which these items are listed (along with other artists of course) we will consider adding them to the 212 charts we have already.

(2) Double Listings
