Episode Eighteen: By Request

Living Colour, Vivid (1988)

Pearl Jam, Ten (1991)
Pearl Jam’s initial band name was Mookie Blaylock, who at the time was playing point guard for the New Jersey Nets. When the band was signed by Epic, there was concern about the name, so the band settled on Pearl Jam, but in honor of their first name, they titled their first album Ten (Mookie Blaylock’s jersey number).

Primus, Sailing the Seas of Cheese (1991)

Sailing the Seas of Cheese was recorded in Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA where I saw INXS play earlier this year.

AC/DC, Back in Black (1980)

Requested as a great album cover “because of what is not there.”

Prince and the Revolution, Purple Rain (1984)

U2, Rattle and Hum (1988)

This album put Sun Studios back on the map. Requested because of the use of the silhouette.
