Sponge was a favorite band of mine in the 90s. My radio station was one of the first to play these guys outside of their native Detroit, so the band’s management and label sent me a gold record when they hit 500,000 units in sales. 

This was my first gold record I ever received from a band and I was thrilled!!!

Then …  I unwrapped it and realized they spelled my name wrong. Oh, well. I still love this album, the band, and the gift.

I generally dislike tribute albums. But this Kiss tribute from 1994 was cool and the red vinyl version was even cooler! It featured some great signature bands of the 90s including Gin Blossoms, Toad The Wet Sprocket, and Lenny Kravitz. 

Garth Brooks’ performance of my favorite Kiss song, “Hard Luck Woman” made me a Garth fan!

Even more rare is this colored orange and blue version.

Since the SAP record had only 5 tracks, it was a one-sided record with a cool vinyl etching on the back!
