    Just curious, how accurate are your release dates? I love dates and history. This is a great site.

    Please respond…

    Thanks!

      I have several sources, mostly reference books and web sites. When one or more of my sources concur on a date, then I believe it to be accurate. I would say that 90% of my list is accurate, and most of the remaining listing are probably correct but I can’t confirm them. Cheers, Dr. Rock
