As we head into a new month, we keep the patron appreciation going. Mike Wagner gets to pick today’s topic.
After an artist releases a hit record, the pressure to meet or exceed expectations on a follow-up album increases. We talk about some albums that followed hit records, featuring works by Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, Prince, Beastie Boys and Peter Gabriel.
