     NOTE: We don't have the printed store list this week. 
     As a result, the only album numbers that can be 
     substantiated are the ones with album cuts on the 
     survey, albums # 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8. The other positions
     are approximations based on last week's and next week's
     top tens.       

     This survey debuted a day late, at 7PM on February 8th, 
     due to a blizzard. Perhaps this is why no one has the 
     printed store list this week!
