Based on the back scan, it looks like the release date should be October 21, 1987. The scan shows O.10.21, with the O representing 1987 (this same letter shows up in the back scan of e.g., Namco Game Music Vol. 2, which was also released in 1987). The copyright date on the back scan also shows 1987, and while that's not always going to be the same as the release date, it strengthens the argument IMO. JGML also shows an October 1987 release date.

I'm curious to see the evidence that suggests this was released in August 1988.

Looks like Yahoo! Japan lists it as August 1988 along with GMR. However, from the date printed on the back cover it's pretty clear that JGML has the correct date, so I'll go ahead and change it to that.

VCH-1886 also has October 21 as the release date:

Another argument is that Namcot Game a la Mode II was released on August 21 1988 with the catalogue number VDR-5243, and that's a big jump from VDR-5222 which makes it unlikely for them to be released on the same day.
