(3) Double Listings

I'm pretty sure #1 (Night Flight To Venus) & #12 (Rivers Of Babylon) are the same. Both are the same time frame and Rivers Of Babylon was the biggest hit from Night Flight.

I also think #3 (Love For Sale) & #11 (Belfast) are the same; for the same reason. Also think #2 (Oceans Of Fantasy) & #14 (Gotta Go Home) are the same, since Gotta Go Home was the big single from the Oceans Of Fantasy album. Your thoughts?

The only chart listing "Rivers Of Babylon" is the French one, which already has an entry for "Night Flight To Venus" (in the same year). While that chart is unreliable and thye entry is probably an error we have to give it the benefit of the doubt.

Unfortunately the same situation is true for all three issues you raise, so we feel we have to leave the data as it is. We've put a comment on the page.

Thanks
