Double Listing - Send Me Some Lovin'

#15 & #49 are the same. Also the "Peepin' & Hidin'" title you have with this song should actually go with song #10 - Slippin' & Slidin' (Peepin' & Hidin').

The entry for "Peepin' & Hidin'" in the original Bullfrog list adds the extra text, but looking at other sources does indicate that this is likely to be a mistake on their part (which is unusual). So we've fixed the data as you suggest, thanks

Little Richard's Albums

I'm really pleased to access this chart on Little Richard. I wonder if you have any album positions for Richard; also R & B/Black positions? Thank you very much, Phil

Little Richard was active in an era when albums were less important than singles, as a result he has fewer albums that made it into the charts than one might expect.

Because he is not in the top 1000 album artists we don't have a seperate page listing his albums. In the 1.9.0083 data we have the following four album entries:

Here's Little Richard: "RYM 4 of 1957, US BB 39 of 1957, Rolling Stone 50, Acclaimed 382 (1957)"

Little Richard: "RYM 8 of 1958"

The Fabulous Little Richard: "RYM 47 of 1959"

Little Richard Vol. 2: "Acclaimed 2958 (1958)"
