The Moody Blues Sur La Mer+

Hi,

If I am reading Billboard's chart information correctly then Sur La Mer spent 18 weeks on their chart peaking at No. 38

Please keep the good work

We don't have any source for freely available weekly album charts in the US (from before 2000). If you know of a web location where we can get this we'd be happy to add the entries into our data.
