Sheryl Crow
Sheryl Crow
(The Unreleased Album)
A&M 75021 5393 2
Stated to be released on September 22, 1992.

Sheryl Crow's first album was "Tuesday Night Music Club", right? And her second album was called "Sheryl Crow", right? Well, not exactly. There is another first album, and this first album was called "Sheryl Crow" also. The title given by collectors and journalists to 1992's "Sheryl Crow" is the "Unreleased Album".

When Sheryl Crow was first signed to A&M, she was sent straight into the recording studio to produce her first LP. One year later, the resultant record was ready but the record was not released. The reasons were twofold. Firstly, the label itself felt that Sheryl could produce a much more accessable LP, given the right surroundings. Secondly, Sheryl was intensely unhappy with the feel and production of the work. It was mutually agreed that the album would be shelved, and a less "produced" and more informal album would be made. That album was Tuesday Night Music Club, released about a year later, and becoming an international success.
