August 3, 1993 ~ The debut album from Sheryl Crow is released.

Bonus: Mini-doc on the Newport Folk Festival 1967 …
June 30, 1971 ~ The Captain releases his second solo album. A few noteables stop by to lend a hand: Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Nils Lofgren, Dr. John, David Crosby and Jerry Garcia. Hell, famed rock photog Henry Diltz even does some backing vocals work.
