Hootie & The Blowfish - Musical Chairs Musical Chairs
Pop New - LP 83136 Atlantic
Sealed 1998 Original With Custom Hype Sticker On The Shrink Wrap. “Although Hootie & The Blowfish Delivered A Fine Second Album, They Had No Hope Of Matching The Phenomenal Success Of Their Debut, Cracked Rear View, So Fairweather Johnson Was Perceived As A Flop, Even Though It Moved Over Two Million Copies. In A Way, That Perception Of Failure Was The Best Thing That Could Have Happened To The Band. With The Spotlight Being Shone Somewhere Else (Alanis Morissette, To Be Exact), Hootie & The Blowfish Could Return To What They Loved Best -- Playing Music And Being In A Band. Musical Chairs, The Group's Third Album, Illustrates What A Blessing It Was For The Group. Despite A Couple Of Production Flourishes, Such As The Occasional Horn Section And Strings, It's No Breakthrough Or Stylistic Departure -- It's Simply A Well-Made Album, Filled With Catchy Tunes. In Other Words, It's Exactly Like Their First Two Records, But The Performances Are More Kinetic And Fun Than On Fairweather Johnson, And The Songs Are Arguably As Consistent As Those On Cracked Rear View. That's Why Musical Chairs Feels A Bit Like A Comeback, But It Really Shouldn't Be Viewed That Way -- It's Just A Consolidation Of Their Talents And Further Proof That Hootie & The Blowfish Are A Fine Mainstream Pop/Rock Band.” – S.T. Erlewine, AMG... more details
 
Hootie & The Blowfish - Cracked Rear View Cracked Rear View
Pop Colored Vinyl 82613 Atlantic
Deadly Rare 1994 Red Virgin Vinyl Original In Glossy, Unplayed Condition. Shrink Wrap Intact. “Hootie & The Blowfish's Debut Album, Cracked Rear View, Was The Success Story Of 1994/1995, Selling Over 12 Million Copies. It's A Startling, Large Number, Especially For A New Band, But In Some Ways, The Success Of The Record Isn't That Surprising. Although Hootie & The Blowfish Aren't Innovative, They Deliver The Goods, Turning Out An Album Of Solid, Rootsy Folk-Rock Songs That Have Simple, Powerful Hooks. "Hold My Hand" Has A Singalong Chorus That Epitomizes The Band's Good-Times Vibes. None Of The Tracks Transcend Their Generic Status, But They Are Strong Songs For Their Genre, With Crisp Chords And Bright Melodies. Still, The Songs Wouldn't Be Convincing Without The Emotive Vocals Of Darius Rucker, Whose Gruff Baritone Has More Grit Than The Actual Songs. At Their Core, Hootie & The Blowfish Are A Bar Band, But They Managed To Convince Millions Of Listeners That They Were The Local Bar Band, And That's Why Cracked Rear View Was A Major Success.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide.... more details
