Track One Music Club
Track One Music Club was launched in January 2017 as a spin-off of Chapter One Book Group.
The current schedule can be viewed below:
Things Fall Apart
Regarded as The Root’s most fully-realized work and a cornerstone of alternative hip-hop, Things Fall Apart received acclaim from critics and was certified Platinum by the RIAA 14 years after its debut in 1999. Featuring collaborations with noted figures from the worlds of hip-hop and R&B such as Mos Def, Common, Erykah Badu and Eve among others, Things Fall Apart has been praised for tackling controversial subject matter while exhibiting tight and insightful lyrics, dynamic rhythms and irresistible beats.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Are You Experienced
The Jimi Hendrix Experience achieved immediate commercial and critical success following what has been described as one of the greatest debuts in the history of rock music. Ranked by Rolling Stone as the 15th greatest album ever made, Are You Experienced has been credited with completely changing the notion of what a guitar could sound like when played by a master like Jimi Hendrix.
Weezer (“The Blue Album”)
While Weezer’s self-titled debut was well received by critics upon its debut, it has since been elevated to one of the most highly regarded albums of the 1990s. Buoyed by popular music videos directed by Spike Jonze, Weezer produced multiple hit singles and reached mainstream success that few bands achieve upon their initial debut. Weezer’s focus on subject matter largely ignored on many mainstream albums, including coping with the divorce of one’s parents, injury of a loved one and a passion for roleplaying games, attracted a devoted fanbase which had previously felt disenfranchised by the world of popular music and which continues to support the band to this day.
With the release of their acclaimed debut album, Pixies established a legacy that would continue influence alternative rock, especially grunge rock, for decades to come. While Surfer Rosa failed to receive much critical attention in the United States, it flourished overseas and has since been recognized by numerous publications as one of the quintessential alternative rock albums of the 1980s. Despite incorporating themes of mutilation and voyeurism into many of their songs, Pixies managed to achieve a balance with unexpected bursts of pop melodies that elevated the tracks on Surfer Rosa into truly memorable.
