Edit (1) Album

Per 'Hollandfree40' website #29 (Wrong) s/b transferred from here to 'Depeche Mode' Song Artist page (currently #19 there).Reply:

Your suggestion that the old listing mixed singles in with the albums is correct. But rather than fixing individual entries we've just reloaded the listing from 2009-2016. That should solve all the issues.

#9 - The Singles 86-98

Based on time frame of Nov. 1985, the following Chart Entry s/b removed fromthis 1998 Album & transferred to #18 - The Singles 81-85 - Switzerland #3 - 17 weeks.

Your suggestion that an album containing music from 1998 probably wasn't a hit in 1985 is reasonable. Data fixed, thanks

(1) Double & (1) Triple Listing...Plus

#33 & #39 are the same (Devotional). Also based on time frame of Oct 1998 it looks like #26 & #27 & #31 are all the same. These all have unusual titles listed that I can find no record of. I think they should be transferred to #10 (The Singles 86-98). Also on #10 the following Chart Entry s/b transferred from here to #18 (The Singles 81-85)' Switzerland 3 - 17 weeks (Nov 85).

That looks reasonable, data fixed, thanks
