#2 - Emile Ford & Checkmates

Please take a closer look at this. Since the following (2) Chart Entriesrelate to 1942 they should probably be removed from Emile Ford's 1960 recording and transferred to Bing Crosby's 1942 version. 1. UK Sheet Music 1 for 2 weeks - Nov. 1942. 2. UK 40's Sheet Music 1 - 8 weeks - Sept. 1942.+

Looks reasonable, data fixed, thanks
