Bandwagonesque release date

Bandwagonesque release date

Postby terjely on Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:49 pm

I've always believed that Bandwagonesque was released by Creation in Europe on 4 November 1991 and in the US by Geffen on 19 November 1991. But the internet is against me on this, and now even the band (or their management) say that the release date is 19 November: https://www.teenagefanclub.com/here-1/2 ... wagonesque

Have I made that date up and always been wrong? Does anyone know, or have an old press release lying around?

No, but it seems reasonable that the Creation release could have preceded the Geffen release by a couple weeks.

You can easily trace an album release date by its UK Album Chart entry date, according to official charts page http://www.officialcharts.com/artist/27146/teenage-fanclub/, the entry date for 'Bandwagonesque' is 16 Nov 1991, which covers sales of the previous week (4 Nov to 10 Nov), so 'Bandwagonesque' was released on Monday 4th Nov 1991. 19th Nov 1991 is Tuesday, which is the street day in the States.

Thank you! That's a clever way to find out. I wish everyone would stick to the correct release date from now on :D Even the BBC celebrated the 25th anniversary14 days late.
