Wednesday 8pm: Feature LP: Collective Soul (1995)

Collective Soul (sometimes referred to as the Blue Album to differentiate from the second self-titled album) is the second and eponymous studio album by Collective Soul. It became the band’s highest selling album to date, going Triple-Platinum, and spent 76 weeks on the Billboard 200 charts. The singles “December,” “The World I Know” and “Where the River Flows” all reached #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, while the first two singles also became major pop hits.

Frontman Ed Roland has considered Collective Soul the band’s true debut album; Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid was intended more as a promotional demo and a means of acquiring a publishing contract for Roland who in 1995 noted, “It’s so funny for people to compare the two. It’s like comparing one band to another band. This record is our first record, flat out.”
