Björk’s art-pop masterpiece Debut — released on July 5, 1993 — still sounds like a color-burst hodgepodge of both wide-eyed naiveté and expert craft a quarter-century later.


Pickin’ Up The Pieces 

Poco’s debut album is released on May 19, 1969. Many consider it the beginning of the “country rock” genre.

Bassist Randy Meisner was fired from the group late in the game after he bitched about not being included in the final mix session. Jim Messina and Richie Furay were in charge of that.  The album cover graphics were already in the can so Meisner was replaced by a dog on the album cover. Rough biz.
