US date format does not put the year first.

Does anyone in the world write dates as YEAR DAY MONTH?

H.A.L. does YEAR MONTH DAY, as we do. Keeps the folders in chronological order.

Of course no-one uses YEAR DAY MONTH as that would be totally ridiculous.....

The ''correct'' way is the logical (getting bigger) DAY MONTH YEAR.....
For the purposes of keeping Zappa archives and the like in order, and to keep H.A.L. fans like TPS happy, a reversal of that format viz YEAR MONTH DAY is allowed and even on occasions, encouraged.

Any other formats/explanations will be met by fingers in the ears and going ''LA, LA, LA, LA ..'' really loudly.....

My mistake, but the point wasn't about the year and I was reacting to the day/month vs month/day parts of the post on the first page where pbuzby says: "Date is 1984 09 11 Berlin, not 1984 11 09 Boston" and then I just had a complete brain malfunction. US date format being month/day/year, means of course that 9/11/2001 is September 11th 2001 to US citizens and 9th November 2001 to almost everyone else. Although, in that case in particular, almost everyone in the world is aware that 911 as an icon means September 11th.

Okay, I think I've understood this now. The year month day thing pbuzby is using is how gigs are listed here. So, the Carousel listing at Discogs has the same setlist as Berlin 1984 Sep 11th according to this place, even though Discogs are claiming it's Berlin 1984 Nov 9th, when a little bit of independent research, for example at IINK, would have easily told them FZ was part way through a US tour on Nov 9th 1984.
