  • that's the date it was released..I'm sure you can verify the day. Meddle is the sixth studio album by English progressive rock group Pink Floyd, released on 31 October 1971 by Harvest Records wikipedia

      That wasn't really the date it was released, TBO. Some annoying troll put that date into Wikipedia to make people like me ask questions about it. People on various sites have told me that Wikipedia can't be taken as gospel, and this proves it. According to the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles and Albums (a much more reliable source of information) the album entered the charts on November 20th, 1971. Considering Pink Floyd had such a fervent following, the album surely must have entered the very next chart after its initial release, so I would put it at Friday, November 12, or at the earliest, Monday, November 8. Both Monday and Friday are far more feasible release dates than Sunday. But what bugs me is that I am usually the only one who points that out, and even when someone else does it's because I mentioned it first. Why do you think that is, TBO?

      Ah, now you are saying it was released on SATURDAY, October 30, not SUNDAY, October 31. That's a bit more feasible than Sunday October 31, isn't it? So why does Wikipedia want to lead us down some weird garden path by telling us it was released on a Sunday?
  • I think it was that Russian arse Vladimir Poutine, back in his KGB days. A communist plot if ever there was one ! : )
    • Murgatroyd
      Is that how he spells his name? I thought it was Putin. I thought Poutine was food. Lol:)

      (Poutine is what we call him at our veteran's club) Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is the correct spelling of his name, but you were sharp eyed enough to catch my little joke - well done. Yes, poutine is french fries mixed with curd cheese and smothered in gravy. It's a heart attack looking for a place to happen, but also quite tasty, and a staple food in my part of the world. : )

      Poutine was a word I learned from the old AB, Ice man. I was on the old site but I wasn't known as Murgatroyd then. I'd never heard of poutine until I saw it on the old AB, then I Googled it. I wouldn't like it myself because it has cheese in it. I personally don't think French fries and gravy go very well together either, but I would eat them if I had them given. However, I wouldn't ask for such a combination in a restaurant. Lol:)
  • I don't know, Murgatroyd, but I doubt if they really are released on Sundays. The only one I know off the top of my head was "CrazySexyCool" by TLC, which was released on November 15th 1994 (my 17th birthday) and that was a Tuesday. That's the album with "Waterfalls" on it (my favourite TLC song of all).

      You were also born on a Tuesday, Bootsiebaby. Did you know? :)
