The debut album show

I pulled out some debut albums during the last few weeks and was amazed, that I still love 'em! Even if I haven't spun these for more than 15 years or so.
Please allow me to share some with you:

The first one:
  • 'The Tourists' - The Tourists . (UK Logo - LOGO 1018, 1979)

    I lately discovered, that they were the real rock band in '79 and '80 in contrast to the later ('Eurythmics') line-up. .Image

    The follow up line-up, after 'The Tourists' split was this one, also an absolute "keeper"!
    • 'In the Garden' - Eurythmics . (UK RCA - RCALP 5061, 1981)

      I have been positively surprised about the quality of this debut album, after haven't spun it for more than 15 years at least. In musical as well, as in quality of sound terms. .Image

    This time I want to introduce you to a more contemporary debut album. It's the result of a collaboration between members of 'The Kills' and 'James White III', they called their line-up "The Dead Weather". Here's their unbelievable intense, deep, wild and fascinating debut:

    .
    • 'Horehound' . (US Third Man - TMR-008, 2009)

      .
    I was hooked on their debut since I played it for the first time, not at least because of the devoted way of singing by Alison Mosshart! .Image
    With this richly equipped double debut album you'll get 3 sides loaded with fantastic songs and a laser etched picture at the fourth.

    One of last year's (2016) debuts

    Here's one more contemporary debut, that I came across because of a on-line record company's newsletter last year. I also bought the reissue this year and this one's introduced to you here:
    • 'New City Blues' - Aubrie Sellers
      • . (US Atlantic - 558369-1, 2017) . the original has been issued on (US Thirty Tigers - no catalog no., 2016)

      It's not really country, it's not really rock, it's fresh, it's innovative and it's pure power! If you think you know where nowadays exciting musical development takes place, I hope your guess is Nashville, TN. .Image

    Once again a rather new debut album, the first one that hooked me on the "new country" music wave:
    • 'Walk of Shame' - Nikki Lane . (US IAmSound - IAM 051 LP, 2011)

      .

    I have seen her live last year with a skull line-up of her band. Just herself, a guitar player and a background singer. This happened in a really intimate venue, approximately 200 people were around and she really rocked the location. After the gig, I had the chance to have a brief chat with her and she autographed me her debut album, that I especially bought there (the second copy) to be autographed. .Image

    • This time I want to introduce you to a really scarce debut album by an English progressive rock band, that became rather well known with their second album. This one, their debut, unfortunately eluded many people at the time of his release. So nowadays it's sought after by many collectors and it fetches high prices, if a copy in neat condition ever turns up.

      .
      • 'Spooky Tooth' - Spooky Tooth . (DE Fontana - 885 444 TY, 1968)

        I got this album from a friend at my 17 B-day and loved it right from the first spin until today. It belongs to the section 'played regularly' of my record collection ever since.

        A collector mate from a different forum described it like this:
        • I'd happily rate it right up there in the top ten in the genre (UK Psychedelia). Up there with Piper, Sorrow, O&O and all those.
          Beautifully written, arranged, played, recorded, cut and pressed.
