There's an album missing from a prominent 80s band - in 1991, Johnny Hates Jazz released "Tall Stories" - the follow up to their hit record "Turn Back The Clock" from 1988 (which spawned the hit single "Shattered Dreams"). But "Tall Stories" isn't listed on AllMusic - not a trace of it, although the site does list "Turn Back The Clock" and their 2015 comeback album "Magnetized."

One of the odd things about how we operate is that we only have a license to display albums from the labels that distributed the records in North America. According to our data provider:
"Unfortunately there is no North American distribution so it does not show up in the data package."
So unfortunately we do not have the rights to display this album in their discography.

Interesting - I didn't realize that AllMusic was a North American database only.  yet, according to Discogs - their album Magnetized was also a UK and Europe-only release - and yet it's listed on the AllMusic site.

Anyway - that answers my question.  It sounds like AllMusic should probably expand its international footprint.  Thank you for your help!
