Certain Calls not working

I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.
Here is the call that I am using and it is returning blank:
theaudiodb.com/api/v1/json/xxxxxx/searchalbum.php?a=Souvlaki

I of course am using my API Key with the xxxxxx are.

I have been able to get Album and Artist to work and TADB Album ID to work with no issue.
Thanks
Jason

You really need the artist name in the call as well for accurate results.

Yes, I ran through my list with both artist and album, I'm was hoping to run through what remains with just the album name to see if I can clean up more without a lot of manual intervention.

I am finding a lot of issues finding things based on minor differences in formatting, spelling, special character usage, etc. I would guess that by just searching the album only I should be able to get at least some of the 5,120 albums that are currently missing information in my sheet.

If you use the Picard software tagger then it will fix all tags to be musicbrainz compliant (and TheAudioDB).

Everything should match up perfectly then
