Album of the Day

Fairweather Johnson

Hootie & The Blowfish had their work cut out for them when they entered the studio to cut the follow-up to CRACKED REAR VIEW, one of the best selling albums of the 1990s, but FAIRWEATHER JOHNSON shows the South Carolina quartet building on the strengths of their debut. The Atlantic collection boasts thoughtful lyrics that belie Hootie's reputation for breezy singalongs, and passionate performances on such tracks as “Tucker's Town,” “Sad Caper” and “Old Man & Me (When I Get To Heaven)” underline the band's commitment to these songs. Released on this day in 1996, FAIRWEATHER JOHNSON debuted at No.1 and went double-platinum, and is in many ways an even more rewarding listen than its predecessor.
