This time you’ve gone too far … The Progfather releases Us on September 29, 1992 …
Get on your knees time to pray, boy — Alice in Chains release on September 29, 1992.
The album was recorded during the 1992 LA Riots. Jerry Cantrell said the riots did indeed affect the album to certain extent …
I was actually in a store buying some beer when some guy came in and started looting the place … also got stuck in traffic and saw people pulling other people out of their cars and beating the crap out of them. That was some pretty scary shit to have to go through, and it definitely affected the overall feel of the album.”
Released on September 28, 1998, Polly Jean said,
“I do think Is This Desire? is the best record I ever made—maybe ever will make—and I feel that that was probably the highlight of my career. I gave 100 per cent of myself to that record …”
Wisco and the MadCity have a soft spot in their collective hearts for “Nevermind.” The album was produced by Butch Vig and the band traveled out to Vig’s Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin, recording from April 2 to 6, 1990.
On April 6, the band played a local show in Madison with fellow Seattle band Tad. Vig began to mix the recordings while the band hung out in Madison, giving an interview to Madison’s community radio station WORT on April 6th.
“Nevermind” was released on September 24, 1991 and was responsible in part for bringing both alternative rock and grunge music to a mainstream audience. It’s #17 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and in 2005, the Library of Congress added it to the National Recording Registry, which collects “culturally, historically or aesthetically important” sound recordings from the 20th century.
Unlike her debut album, this one is all hers — written and produced by her and her alone.
Sheryl Crow releases her sophmore album — and my favorite — on September 24, 1996.
It includes “Redemption Day,” a song that Johnny Cash took a fancy to and recorded just before he passed away. Sheryl included it on her latest release, “Threads” as a duet and it’s a damn show-stopper.
Blind Melon releases their debut album on September 22, 1992.
