Double Listing - Themes Best Of

I believe #4 & #15 are the same; based on time frame and the fact that Themes was certified 2xGold in France. Stands to reason it would have made the French charts.

That looks likely, we've assumed you are correct, thanks

2 & 14 's the same album.

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