Double Listing - In Dreams: Greatest Hits

#2 & #18 are the same. The title of this 1963 Album should just be 'In Dreams'. There is a 1987 album titled 'In Dreams: The Greatest Hits'. Therefore the (3) Chart Entries listed here from the 1980's should be removed & transferred to that album.

Data fixed, thanks
