Double Listing - There's A Hole In My Bucket

#27 & #3 (under duets w/Odetta) are the same.

Data fixed, thanks

#13 - Gomen-Nasai (Forgive Me)

Per Wikipedia & Joel Whitburn this also made the US Billboard charts (#19 - 2 weeks).

Hmm, the older version of the Bullfrog data seems to have missed out songs with Whitburn numbers 1953_160..1953_256 (including this one). We've used the latest version (which fixes this) to add the missing 90 odd entries back in.

We spotted this issue with your comment on Percy Faith's "Swedish Rhapsody" so it should be fixed

Thanks
