    It appears that there were about 16 original releases in the US (according to the article, March 1983)..

    I seem to remember that the first CD to go gold was Boston's long awaited "Third Stage" in 1986.

    Also, there was talk about the playing of the CD being related to how long it took to play Beethoven's 9th symphony. Dont believe it.

    Not sure if this will help, but I borrowed a cd from the library a few years a go and it was made in my birth year, to my suprise! the cd was The Best of Manhattan Transfer and it was a cd from 1982.
