Here’s your #TapeTuesday! The Black Crowes – Shake Your Money Maker (1990)

Here's your #TapeTuesday. The first incarnation of The Black Crowes was formed in 1984 by brothers Rich and Chris Robinson and dubbed "Mr. Crowe's Garden." Hailing from Marietta, Georgia the band's sound was highly influenced by R.E.M. By the time they signed to Rick Rubin's record label Def American, they had changed their name to The Black Crowes, and their sound was considered a southern rock revivalism. Steeped in the sound of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, Humble Pie and The Rolling Stones, their 1990 debut Shake Your Money Maker, hit at a time when there was really nothing less fashionable than southern rock. MTV was making the transition from hair metal to grunge with seemingly no room for the Crowes shaggy rock and soul. It took their Otis Redding cover "Hard To Handle" to take the Crowes to the mainstream. Follow up singles "She Talks To Angels," "Jealous Again," and "Twice As Hard" cemented Shake Your Money Maker as a huge success selling over three million copies. The sibling rivalry of Chris and Rich as well as their hard-partying reputation only helped fuel the band's popularity and created a huge buzz for the follow up. To me the album sounds like a fun, loose romp that sounds more like 1970 than 1990. Not to mention, this band had a palpable chemistry that most hair metal bands could never achieve. Purchased at Record Utopia in Westmont, IL September 2015 for $3. #TheBlackCrowes #ShakeYourMoneyMaker #ChrisRobinson #RichRobinson #JohnnyColt #SteveGorman #JeffCease #GeorgeDracoulias #BrendanOBrien #RickRubin #KevinShirley #DefAmerican

Here’s your #TapeTuesday! Ginuwine – Ginuwine… The Bachelor (1996)

Here's your #TapeTuesday. Ginuwine, born Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, released this, his debut album Ginuwine…the Bachelor, in October 1996 signaling a major sea change in modern R&B music. His career began as part of Swing Mob, a label founded by Devante Swing of the New Jack Swing forefathers Jodeci. It was there where he met the young upstart record producers Missy Elliot and Timbaland. In 1995 Timbaland began focusing his concerns on two new R&B hopefuls, Ginuwine and Aaliyah, producing the entirety of both singers debut albums. Tim's use of found sounds, layered ambience and hip hop aggression gave these albums an alien yet radio-ready sound that R&B had never experienced. "Pony" the first single, announces it presence with a loud burp/fart sounding bassline. It was a massive hit, heralding the beginning of Timbaland as a true innovator in both rap and R&B eventually working with literally every noteworthy urban act of the past 20 years. The rest of the album is less brash but still intriguing with an interesting cover of "When Doves Cry." Ginuwine… The Bachelor also began the trend that is now ultra-hip: the depressed lothario. He's handsome, he's got all the ladies, and he's still unhappy. There would be no Drake without this album. "The World Is So Cold" and "Lonely Daze" are examples of this. All in all, the combination of Timbaland's earth-shaking production style, Missy Elliot and Magoo's cameos and Ginuwine's sad sex symbol persona create a modern soul classic. Purchased at Record Utopia, October 2015, for $.49. #Ginuwine #Timbaland #MissyElliot #GinuwineTheBachelor #Magoo #Aaliyah #Sony #550Music

Here’s your #TapeTuesday! Guns N’ Roses – G N’ R Lies (1988)

Here's your #TapeTuesday. A stopgap release after the world-conquering Appetite For Destruction album, G N' R Lies combined four songs recorded in 1986 as well as four new tracks recorded and released in 1988. The first four songs were previously released as the EP Live ?!*@ Like A Suicide. Legend has it that while they were billed as live recordings, they were actually recorded at Pasha Studios in Hollywood with pre-recorded audience noise and cheering added simply for the fact that it was too expensive for the band to record an actual live recording. The EP was limited to 10,000 records and cassettes so Geffen decided to include it for this worldwide release. The last four songs were newly recorded with an acoustic flavor that predated the MTV Unplugged era. "Patience" became a huge ballad for the band, showcasing their little known sensitive side as well as some well placed whistling from Axl Rose. "Used To Love Her" was a catchy rocker and the chorus of "I Used To Love Her, But I had to kill her" certainly caused some controversy… Though it turned out that the song was actually about Axl's dog. However, nothing could quiet the uproar and backlash based around the set's closing track "One In A Million." One of the first songs that Rose wrote by himself, the lyrics painted a picture of a racist and homophobic character who many believed was based on Axl's own beliefs. A decade before Eminem was painting himself as a white trash homophobe, Axl was certainly letting everyone know where he stood. He ended up softening his homophobic stance while befriending both Elton John and Freddy Mercury as well as the head of his record label David Geffen. The controversy actually worked for the band and the album making G N' R Lies another huge hit. Purchased at Record Utopia in Westmont, IL October 2015. #GunsNRoses #GNRLies #AxlRose #Slash #DuffMcKagan #IzzyStradlin #StevenAdler #Geffen

NEW ADDITIONS TO THE ANDY DERER SHOW CD WALL

SUMMER 2017

This is the official list of CDs that Andy has added to his famous CD wall during the Summer of 2017. Andy owns over 4,000 compact discs and collects on a weekly basis. To slow down his purchases, he makes sure to play each title four times before filing the disc away onto the CD wall. Some are great, some are terrible, some are expensive, most are super cheap. The current record stores that Andy frequents, as of Summer 2017, are Record Utopia (Westmont – our awesome sponsor!), Reckless Records (Chicago – Wicker Park & Broadway locations), Half Price Books (Downers Grove & Countryside locations), Disc Replay (Downers Grove), Goodwill (Westmont), Amazon (Internet), Music Masters Worldwide (Downers Grove). It’s funny, around the year 2000, there was nearly 30 record stores that Andy would patronize and now it’s down to a small handful. That reflects the huge sea change of the music industry. As always, thanks for listening to The Andy Derer Show!
