  • What about official vs real Release Date? It seems that ... when a Release is first sold on a market... means, that the earliest date of a sale should be entered (real), not some announced release date (official). I always thought that the dates have to be official release dates, but after reading this page, I have doubts. --r@zorbla.de
    • It probably should be rephrased then, as i think generally it's only going to be the 'official' date that's useful in a discography, and i'm pretty sure that's the what the practice is anyway. --Gecks
