Every tour there are always one or two albums that become the “Album of the tour”. It never fails. Some albums just get obsessed over.
The other day, while on a long-ish drive, we decided to listen to ALL the albums that have made it to that prestigious spot of Album of the tour. Naturally, since it’s the end of the year we decided to compile a list and share it with you.
Keep in mind, there are plenty “go to” albums we listen to regularly but when I say Album of the tour, the I’m referring to obsessive behaviour. They get listened to over and over again, back to back. Days at a time. Sometimes weeks. Obsessive.
Typically I would try and have links to all the bands for you buy I’m typing on my antique BlackBerry so I’m not really sure If this will even post…either way, just google the bands. That works. I swear ….
So, in no particular order here are some of our album of the tour albums :
1. Consolers of the lonely, Racontuers
2. The Story, Brandi Carlisle
3. The Dirty South, Drive by Truckers
4. Croweology, The Black Crowes
5. Orange Blossom, JJ Grey & Mofro
6. Georgia Warhorse, JJ Grey
7. Black Ribbons, Shooter Jennings
8. Snail Face II, Snail Face
9. Beale St to Oblivion, Clutch
10. Blast Tyrant, Clutch
11. Cup of Cold Poison, Grady
So there you have it. I may post another list later of the “go to” albums for touring as well. Stay tuned
