Other Important Records Released on May 10, 1994:
  • SONIC YOUTH – EXPERIMENTAL JET SET, TRASH AND NO STAR | The album that brought “Bull in the Heather” and perhaps the most “mainstream” notoriety for the band.
  • G. LOVE and SPECIAL SAUCE – Self-Titled | Can I get a “Cold Beverage?” 
  • HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS – FOUR CHORDS & SEVERAL YEARS AGO | Huey Lewis is one of my Top 10 artists of all-time. Respect. Read more about Huey here.
