I think you have a thankless task due to small differences in how the data's been presented to you.

Assuming I've understood the spreadsheet correctly here's some I noticed which would increase the number of albums for an artist if the data were standardised (in your list of 3 albums or more).  I doubt it would change the total number for an artist but haven't checked. To do this I downloaded a copy of it then sorted the list for  the 13.10.20 tab on column and just eyeballed them, nothing more sophisticated. and there may well be more like this but hope it helps:

fantastic thanks for doing that.

I'm aware of these problems and you're spot on with your point about how people have written their lists, there's lots of inconsistencies.

I keep chipping away at them but I think we have almost 1000 entries now, some are a bit more obvious, others less so because they're not always adjacent in the list when you sort alphabetically.

I'll correct these that you've spotted the next time I do an update.

@Phobic Fake news! I hope you're not implementing Trump like tactics on voter rigging here just to stop Mr Zimmerman being top? Which he obviously should be :D.

Seriously though, it's been great to see the hard work you've done in turning all the votes into graphs and charts. Top trumps to you!

A moral victory for the Beatles still I think
