Tuesday Night Music Club is the debut album from American singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow, released on August 3, 1993. The lead single "Run Baby Run" was not particularly successful. However, the album gained attention after the success of the third single, "All I Wanna Do," based on the Wyn Cooper poem "Fun" and co-written by David Baerwald, Bill Bottrell, Sheryl Crow, and Kevin Gilbert. The single eventually reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100, propelling the album to number three in the US Billboard 200 album charts, selling over 5.3 million units there as of January 2008.[7][8] On the UK Album Chart, Tuesday Night Music Club reached #8[9] and is certified 2× platinum.[10]

It is listed as one of 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.[11]

History

The title of the album comes from the name for the ad hoc group of musicians including Crow, the "Tuesday Music Club", who came together on Tuesdays to work on the album.[12] Many of them share songwriting credits with Crow.

The front cover of the album shows Sheryl Crow wearing a denim shirt with "a sheepish smile",[13] by which she might be perceived as "a country singer". The back cover has a neon cafe sign[14] of the "Jenny Rose Cafe", consisting of the heart-shaped neon light behind the sign "CAFE" and above the other sign "JENNY ROSE".[15][16]

The group existed as a casual songwriting collective prior to its association with Crow, but rapidly developed into a vehicle for her debut album after her arrival (she was at the time dating Kevin Gilbert, who actually co-wrote most of the songs for this album along with Crow, Baerwald, Ricketts, Bottrell, Schwartz and MacLeod). Her relationship with Gilbert became acrimonious soon after the album release and there were disputes about songwriting credits. In interviews later, Crow claimed to have written them. Both Gilbert and Baerwald castigated Crow publicly in the fallout, although Baerwald later softened his position. A similar tension arose with TNMC member Bill Bottrell after her second album, on which he collaborated during the early stages.

In February 2008, Bottrell said, "The truth is hard to describe, but it lies between what all the people were shouting. It was all very vague and very complicated. She wrote the majority of the album. The guys and I contributed writing and lyrics, including some personal things. However, the sound was the sound that I developed".[17] However, this was said while promoting their most current work together and contradicts most previous statements by him including those in Richard Buskin's highly detailed book about the situation. Bottrell in earlier times had said Crow was given the second-largest portion of the publishing splits on the album in order to motivate her to work hard, as she still had to pay the very large debt from her unreleasable real first record, publishing being the only way she was likely to earn any money from her new record.

Tuesday Night Music Club went on to sell some 7.6 million copies in the US and UK during the 1990s. The album also won Crow three Grammy Awards in 1995: Record of the Year, Best New Artist and Best Female Vocal Performance.

Travis Tritt's 2002 album Strong Enough features a song titled "Strong Enough to be Your Man" and was written as a reply to Crow's original song.[18]

"Tuesday Night Music Club" has been expanded for a 2009 re-release. The new deluxe edition features the original 1993 album, a second CD containing b-sides, rarities and outtakes and a bonus DVD featuring the album's six original videos plus a rare alternate version of "All I Wanna Do" directed by Roman Coppola. The DVD also includes a newly produced documentary composed of on-the-road, backstage, soundcheck and live footage from Crow's early '90s tour in support of the set. Four of the previously unreleased recordings on the bonus CD‒"Coffee Shop," "Killer Life," "Essential Trip of Hereness" and "You Want More"—were recorded in 1995 and intended for Crow's follow-up album. The cuts were mixed for this album by original "Tuesday Night Music Club" producer Bill Bottrell. The bonus CD also includes a trio of UK single B-sides--"Reach Around Jerk," an alternate version of "The Na-Na Song" titled "Volvo Cowgirl 99" and a cover of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself"‒as well as a cover of Led Zeppelin's "D'yer Mak'er" and the song "On The Outside," which was released as part of an "X-Files" soundtrack album.[19]
