Thursday 9/22/22 6pm ET: Feature LP: Sheryl Crow (1996)

Sheryl Crow is the second studio album by American singer and songwriter Sheryl Crow, released on September 24, 1996, by A&M Records. Unlike its predecessor Tuesday Night Music Club, which was written by a casual collective formed by Crow and several other musicians, Sheryl Crow was entirely produced by Crow, who wrote most of the songs alone or with only one collaborator. Most of the album was recorded at Kingsway Studios in New Orleans, Louisiana. The album covers topics of American life, relationship breakups, and moral and ethical issues, while encompassing a variety of music genres such as rock, blues, alternative rock, country, and folk.

Sheryl Crow was a commercial success, being certified 3× platinum by the RIAA and 3× platinum by the BPI. It reached No. 6 on the US Billboard Top 200 chart and produced five singles, including the international hit “If It Makes You Happy”. The album received very positive reviews from critics, who praised its intricate production and Crow’s louder and more assured singing. At the 39th Annual Grammy Awards, the album was awarded Best Rock Album and Crow received the Best Female Rock Vocal Performance award for “If It Makes You Happy”. Retrospectively, it is often regarded as Crow’s best album.

Thursday 9/15/22 10am ET: Feature Artist / Feature LP: B.B. King – B.B. King & Friends: 80 (2005)

Riley B. King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known professionally as B.B. King, was an American blues singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. He introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending, shimmering vibrato and staccato picking that influenced many later blues electric guitar players. AllMusic recognized King as “the single most important electric guitarist of the last half of the 20th century”.

King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and is one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, earning the nickname “The King of the Blues”, and is considered one of the “Three Kings of the Blues Guitar” (along with Albert King and Freddie King, none of whom are related). King performed tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing on average at more than 200 concerts per year into his 70s. In 1956 alone, he appeared at 342 shows.

King was born on a cotton plantation in Itta Bena, Mississippi, and later worked at a cotton gin in Indianola, Mississippi. He was attracted to music and the guitar in church, and he began his career in juke joints and local radio. He later lived in Memphis and Chicago; then, as his fame grew, toured the world extensively. King died at the age of 89 in Las Vegas on May 14, 2015.


B.B. King & Friends: 80 is the forty-first album by B.B. King released September 13, 2005. Recorded in several studios, it celebrates King’s 80th birthday and features duets with a variety of musicians. 80 reached No. 45 in the Billboard 200 top albums chart as well as No. 1 in the blues albums chart.

Tuesday 12:15am: Feature LP – Sheryl Crow – Threads (2019)

Threads is the eleventh and final studio album by American singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow. The album was released on August 30, 2019, by Big Machine Records. Threads is a collaborative album featuring many of Crow’s musical friends, heroes and newer artists.

While promoting her 2018 UK tour, Crow released “Wouldn’t Wanna Be Like You” featuring St. Vincent and revealed that the duets project will possibly be her final album, citing the impossibility of releasing something that could follow up such a gathering of artists. She added that she will continue to write and tour and will potentially release short-form music akin to extended plays.

“Redemption Day” was officially released as the album’s lead single on April 21, 2019. First appearing on Crow’s self-titled second album in 1996, the Threads version of the song features Johnny Cash, who had recorded a cover of the song for his 2010 posthumous release American VI: Ain’t No Grave.

On May 22, 2019, “Live Wire”, a blues-inspired track featuring Bonnie Raitt and Mavis Staples, was released on Entertainment Weekly. Crow, Raitt and Staples subsequently performed the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

On June 14, 2019, Crow released the rock track “Still the Good Old Days” featuring Joe Walsh. She performed the song that night on The Graham Norton Show.

On June 28, 2019, Crow promoted Threads by performing “Prove You Wrong” and “Still the Good Old Days” during her set on the Pyramid Stage at the Glastonbury Festival.

On August 2, 2019, “Tell Me When It’s Over”, a bluesy breakup song was released which was co-written and features backing vocals by Chris Stapleton.

The funk-infused track “Story of Everything” that includes a rap by Chuck D, guitar playing by Gary Clark Jr. and vocals by Andra Day was released on August 23, 2019 and focuses on the current state of America, in particular, the racial issues that still divide the country.
