#15 - Kay Starr - I'll Never Be Free

Please take another look at this. I believe the following (2) Chart Entriesneed to be removed from here and transferred to #1 (under duets w/Tennessee Ernie Ford). 1. US 1940's - 3 - 15 weeks (1950) & 2. Your Hit Parade 11 of 1950. Per Wikipedia Kay Starr recorded a solo version of this song in 1961 which is the Billboard entry of 94 - 3 weeks you are showing. The Hit version is the duet. Thanks.

OK you are correct, the 1950 entries have been assigned to Kay Starr & Tennessee Ernie Ford and the 1961 entries to Kay Starr

Thanks for the correction

Kay Starr & Tennessee Ernie Ford

I believe #15 & #1 "I'll Never Be Free"(duet) are the same recording and should be combined.

No, one is Capitol 4583 the other is Capitol 1124.
