Somewhere in my big boxes of stuff I'm sure I could find a release date for TOSOTM. Not sure I have the time or the energy to actually do that, but I don't believe anything was ever released on a Thursday in those days.

The RIAA website lists the release date as May 11th, in addition to their certification dates.

Yep. I would never remember release dates of albums in the 80's but May 11 is a significant date for me and I do remember the excitement of the day and the new release.

One day in April of 1989 a friend called and raved about the new SN single she heard on the radio. I figured she must have heard an obscure track from the past and just assumed it was new. But she insisted so I decided to call a local radio station and the DJ confirmed it was a song called Rooms on Fire. I couldn't believe it! I still remember hearing it for the first time. It was at night during a partly cloudy sky with a bright moon and me staring out the window in what was the first apartment I ever had. And I loved it from the moment I heard it. Loved the video as well from the moment I saw that. To this day the song has stood the test of time. I enjoyed the album and played all the songs endlessly for many years.
Good story
