Monday 8/3/2020 12pm ET: Feature Artist – Collective Soul

Collective Soul is an American rock band originally from Stockbridge, Georgia. Now based in Atlanta, the group consists of lead vocalist Ed Roland, rhythm guitarist Dean Roland, bassist Will Turpin, drummer Johnny Rabb and lead guitarist Jesse Triplett. Formed in 1992, Collective Soul released their Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid album on the independent label Rising Storm Records in 1993. The band went from obscurity to popularity that year after the song “Shine” became an underground hit based on radio play. The album was re-released in 1994 under major label Atlantic Records.

Collective Soul released a self-titled album in March 1995. Considered by Ed Roland to be the band’s true debut album, Collective Soul spent 76 weeks on the Billboard 200 charts and went triple-platinum, becoming the band’s highest selling album. The singles “December”, “The World I Know”, and “Where the River Flows” each reached number one on the Mainstream Rock charts. About two years later, Collective Soul released Disciplined Breakdown. Although not as successful in sales as their previous two albums, Disciplined Breakdown contained two number one Mainstream Rock charts hits – “Precious Declaration” and “Listen”. The band released a fourth studio album, Dosage, in 1999. The album’s first single, “Heavy”, spent a then record-breaking 15 weeks on the top spot of the Mainstream Rock charts.

The band released Blender in 2000, their fifth album and final with the original starting lineup, as lead guitarist Ross Childress left the band in 2001. About two weeks after Childress’ departure, Collective Soul released Seven Year Itch, a compilation of their greatest hits between 1994 and 2001. Original drummer Shane Evans departed from the band in 2003. After the Seven Year Itch album, Collective Soul established their own label, El Music Group, prior to releasing Youth in 2004. The band recorded a live album with the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra in 2005, titled Home, and released it in 2006. Collective Soul has since released four more albums: Afterwords (2007), a second self-titled album (2009), See What You Started by Continuing (2015), and Blood (2019).

Thursday 12am ET: Feature LP: Collective Soul – Seven Year Itch: Greatest Hits, 1994-2001

On September 18, 2001, Collective Soul released their greatest hits compilation Seven Year Itch: Greatest Hits, 1994-2001 (stylized as 7even Year Itch). The compilation includes songs recorded from 1994 to 2001 and included two new tracks, “Next Homecoming” and “Energy”. Seven Year Itch received decent reviews and was relatively successful. It sold 225,000 copies in the first year after its release and reached number fifty on the Billboard 200; in Canada, it reached number nine on its albums chart and went platinum.

The compilation has sold over 500,000 copies. It saw a resurgence in sales after Collective Soul began putting out albums on their own independent label, El Music Group, beginning in 2004.

Seven Year Itch was the last album Collective Soul released through Atlantic Records and their last album to feature guitarist Ross Childress, who had been with the band since its 1993/1994 debut.

Wednesday 11pm: Feature LP: Collective Soul (Blue Album) (1995)

Collective Soul (sometimes referred to as the Blue Album to differentiate from the second self-titled album) is the second 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.”

Wednesday 11pm: Feature LP: Collective Soul – Dosage @CollectiveSoul

Dosage is the fourth studio album by the American alternative rock band Collective Soul. The album was released on Atlantic Records in February 1999 and peaked at #21 on the Billboard albums chart. The album’s title was derived from a catchphrase they used to describe burnout after their previous tour.

The first single from the album, “Heavy”, gave the band another #1 hit on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and spent a then record-breaking 15 weeks on the top spot. “Heavy” was also featured in the opening of the video game NHL 2001 and in the 2014 Golden Corral ad. The second single released, “Run”, also gained broad mainstream radio-play and was featured on the soundtrack for the 1999 film Varsity Blues.

Over nine years after the album’s release, the single “Tremble for My Beloved” was featured in the 2008 film Twilight and its accompanying soundtrack.

In 2012, the band performed the album in its entirety (save “Dandy Life”) during their Dosage Tour.
