#20 & #43 are the same (Too Low For Zero). Also #30 & #45 (Rocket Man - The Definitive Hits). Finally #48 & #2 (under Duets w/Melbourne Symphony Orchestra - Live In Australia) are the same.

Data fixed, thanks

#37 (11-17-70) & #45 (The Elton John Live Album) are the same (Per UK Chartarchive). Also #33 & #43 (Your Songs).

In the UK the live album was *actually* called 17-11-70 (of course) but we've made the change you suggested

The data has been changed, thanks

#51 should be combined with #2 (under duets - Live In Australia). #36 & #37 are the same (One Night Only-The Greatest Hits). #14 & #48 are the same (Love Songs). #4 (under duets with Tim Rice - The Lion King) should be moved to Disney - The Lion King (currently #21 in 1994).

Data fixed, thanks
