The Year's The Thing: 1974

Today’s selection is the most recent recording that we’ll feature this week; however, it is not the most recent year, “1974.” Written about the year of Ryan Adams birth, it appears on his 2003 album “Rock N Roll.” The album was released on November 4, 2003 – the day prior to Adams’ 29th birthday. In “1974,” Adams references “just like the day I was born” over and over.

The album did moderately well at the #33 slot; however, “1974” was not released as a single. Adams does all of the guitar work and a good number of other instrumentation on the album. It has been reported that Adams has been temperamental at times and some of that angst comes out in his music. Enjoy.
