(2) Double Listings...Plus

#32 & #38 are the same (The Collection 1973-1984). Also #10 & #30 are the same (Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band Live/1975-1985). Per Joel Whitburn the Billboard Chart entries should be combined to read #1 - 26 weeks. Plus #20 (Greatest Hits) Billboard chart entry of #1 - 49 weeks should be removed & replaced with #43 - 17 weeks. #4 (Greatest Hits) should include the Billboard chart entry of #1 - 32 weeks.

Data fixed, thanks

Can you tell me when did "born to run" went gold?

Thanks

In France the album was certified Gold in Apr 1995

(maybe your question needs fixing?)

Triple Listing - Greatest Hits

#6 & #15 & #32 seem to be the same. Most of the Chart Entries on #15 (the 2009 Album) relate to 1995 (the year of the #6 Album). Wikipedia says these are basically the same album.

We've split the three entries into two names. They are probably the same but we've kept them distinct because they show up in the same charts as seperate entries.

Thanks for the suggestion
