February 8th, 1977 was a Tuesday, and in the USA, Tuesdays are "new release"
days for all record companies. So it wouldn't surprise me if Elektra and Sire
went head-to-head on the same release date - it might have been a way to
capitalize on "catch the new wave"-type marketing by one company or the other. 

On the other hand, it *would* be surprising if Sire had released several "new
wave" albums on the same day, since they would only compete with each other for
sales (same target audience).
