I've edited your message to put in some I know, Blixa. Er, hope I didn't undo any edits you'd made yourself!!

Btw, 4 should be Velvet Underground and Nico by Velvet Underground and Nico, but I can't get it to work either. Will try Amazon.

It works as - The Velvet Underground and then The Velvet Underground and Nico.

Obviously I don't have a lot of work to do today!

No, it's one album per artist and David Bowie is already represented with Heroes.
