      Aaron:

      I agree that November 16 is not correct, but I don’t believe November 23 is either. I checked numerous of my sources, including MusicBrainz, AllMusic, the Black Sabbath “official” website (not sure if it really is), 45Cat, Discogs, Revolvy and others. Several (but not all) show November 1, 1987 as the UK release date, and two have December 8, 1987 as the US release date. I don’t always trust Wikipedia, so I am inclined to use those two dates in my database. Unless, of course, new, verifiable information becomes available.

      Cheers, Dr. Rock
