I got you and that’s all I need …”
Wilco release their second — and my favorite of their albums so far — on October 29, 1996. I’ve worn out two CDs. Probably be three if not for technology.
Shakey releases his first compilation album on October 28, 1977.
July 1. 1968 ~ The debut album from The Band. The music is composed at “Big Pink,” a house shared by Rick Danko, Garth Hudson and Richard Manual in West Saugerties, NY. The cover artwork is by Dylan. It’s #34 on Rolling Stones’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and an American treasure.
Lucinda’s Grammy Award winning album is released on June 30, 1998. It features appearances by Emmylou Harris and The Hardore Troubadour — Steve Earle. Some call it one of the greatest alt-country albums ever and it sits at #304 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
It really is that good. Not just one of the best albums of the year, but in recent memory.
The Rolling Stones release my fav album from The Boys on June 9, 1978. The original album cover featured the likenesses of some fairly famous people who didn’t like the fact they were featured on a Stones album and sued. Their images were removed and album cover #2 was quickly reissued. It’s also the first album to feature Woody, who joined the band for good just before the recording. And, it’s #269 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
The “Some Girls” tour was nothing short of epic. I got to participate on a Saturday in July at Soldier Field in Chicago. A weekend in Chicago with The Stones — magical.
