Album/CD release date game

Inspired by TBC, a simple game that's been great fun when played.

List the date of an album release. Contestants must name the artist and album title. Winner posts the next one. No cheating.

Ok, an easy one to kick things off:

September 24, 1991

My pleasure Arlene - credit where it's due.

OK a hint. This is a big album in many ways, though it started out slow. But by January 1992 it had knocked Michael Jackson's album Dangerous off the top spot on the Billboard charts.

Right band Chris, but we need the album before I can pass it over to someone else.

[PS I can't stand them either]

Well, it's certainly a masterpiece to me, but I only know it was released in 1976. Was it TRICK OF THE TAIL----Genesis? Whom, by the way, had Tony Banks writing the vast majority of the lyrics.

I have to admit, I'm loving this game. Kudos to the good Doctor for coming up with this one. Thanks, Relayer....one more time....may make this one a bit tougher than my last one.


This single effort was released in 1986, exact date may or may not be a dead give-away so I'll refrain from providing it ( just to make it a wee bit harder ). Its basic premise revolved around one instrument only, though of course, there were more. Hunting wasn't necessarily a prerequisite, but if you didn't, you might have to "Toe the Line".

Good try, Relayer,! Regrettably, Mr. Gabriel is not the subject of this musical probe. However, I will drop you another hint. A YES member might be ; )

The doctor has performed his evaluation with a keen sense of observational skills. The clever Relayer fell for my false lead, bu the doc recognized the symptoms and yep, GTR is the correct diagnosis! Take it away, Doc!

Cool!

Okay, this album caused some wet eyes when it 'escaped' in March 1983.

Nope not that one Relayer, but I can see where you're going.

This band were more in the style of the old prog masters.

you're clues are undoubtedly linked superbly, Doc. I just can't piece any two together. Howe's about another hint....make it as opaque as you wish. Maybe that'll help.

I was think something from Esquire, but the last few hints say no.

Surely Marillion "Script For A Jester''s Tear"?

Assuming I'm correct here's the next one: October 1977 and a connection to a British tabloid newspaper...

Yep indeed it was Script for a Jester's Tear. Nice one Ed. (Sorry for not replying - have been away for a few days).

Anyway, back to Ed's choice. I dunno myself, but it looks like Chris has a good feeling about his answer :D .
