# 9 – Tuesday Night Music Club
Continuing with our top 10 Sheryl Crow Album Covers List we move on to Sheryl Crow’s debut album entitled Tuesday Night Music Club. The album’s cover art was very much a sign of the times of the mid 1990s when many albums covers were showcased using collages of multiple pictures and graphics. We were not really sure who Sheryl Crow was at the time and the album cover sort of hides her within the graphics. It’s very similar to the way Alanis Morissette was presented on her debut album cover a couple of years later. It’s all about keeping a little mystery as to who this new fabulous artist really was.
Tuesday Night Music Club was released in 1993. The album hit number two on the US Billboard Top 200 Albums Charts. Six singles were released from the album. In the end the album has sold more than seven million copies in the United States alone. What a way to begin a career.Nice job Sheryl Crow.

However, this album was just too good to maintain a small card store release. In 2011, it was released worldwide on CD by A&M Records.

This was a bit of an image change that pretty much just lasted for the one song. But what a song and image it was. The album was released in 1996.
