This is my data which had two tables
album(asin, title, artist, price, release, label, rank)
track(album, dsk, posn, song)

This is my question
Wagner's Ring cycle has an imposing 173 tracks, Bing Crosby clocks up 101 tracks.

List albums so that the album with the most tracks is first. Show the title and the number of tracks

Show us what you have tried so far as this is obviously a homework question. We will help with homework but won't do your homework for you.
