Sheryl Crow’s first album was a true limited edition — ”released” to two or three dozen journalists in 1992 as a white-label advance cassette, before she and A&M Records mutually decided to kill it. ”I think she was just kind of finding her way — at great expense,” says guitarist Dominic Miller, who played on the Hugh Padgham-produced project, which reportedly cost $400,000. ”It was a good collection of songs, but Sheryl was probably unsure which facet of her character she was representing. It’s representative of the time — early-’90s, very produced, glossy kind of stuff — and I suppose she rebelled against that in the end.” Good move: Her official debut, 1993’s Tuesday Night Music Club, won her the acclaim this dry run wouldn’t have.
