Happy Release Day! Sony Legacy celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Rosanne Cash‘s pioneering LP King’s Record Shop with a special edition 180-gram vinyl release and digital download with bonus tracks. Released on June 26, 1987, the album would prove a pivotal one not only in the career of Cash, but in the emergence of Americana as an heir to traditional country music. The set would also have the distinction of marking the first time a female artist had ever had four #1 singles on the Billboard Country charts from a single record. Cash’s covers of her father’s “Tennessee Flat Top Box”, John Hiatt’s “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”, John Stewart’s “Runaway Train” as well as “If You Change Your Mind,” a song she’d written with steel guitar player Hank DeVito, all climbed to the top of the chart.
Produced by Rodney Crowell (Rosanne’s then-husband), the set features a stellar band of players including Crowell, Vince Gill, Patty Smyth, Benmont Tench, Steve Winwood, and Randy Scruggs.
