    Welcome one, welcome all, to October 2018's Essentials guess thread!

    In the spirit of @Phaneronic, some house rules:
    1. Tangents are okay, but if it's getting super unwieldy I might nudge folk back on track. We have an album to sleuth, after all!
    2. Try not to just list a whole bunch of albums it might be (that's not cool), unless you have explanations or whatever. Let's keep it moving and the guesses flowing.
    3. Guesses from previous months, or for future months, won't count. This thread's just for October 2018.
    Announcement: September 27

    !!Winner!!: Townes Van Zant — For the Sake of the Song (@transformer man #46)

    Official hints:
    • It's country:

    • The artist is on the cover in ... some way or another:
    • Numbers, maaaan. Specifically, the numbers 597,584,5 (clue applies to all tracks). So far interpretations include:
      • The artist has either 597 or 584 listings on Discogs
      • The album was released either 597 or 584 months ago (January 1969 or February 1970)
    • This weird clue right here

    • More numbers. Current thinking is title length:

    Sleuthing:
    • Interesting Twitter happs flagged by @tvham:
    • Pressing plant leak:
    • ...but @lee newman notes that it looks to be numbered (and therefore not ROTM, but an exclusive)...
    • May feature yodelling


    First few guesses:

    Kinda hoping that the country will be December which will be my next renewal, I’ll opt out, save some cash before Christmas and then resubscribe in January lol.

    For no other reason than they are doing a celebratory tour for this album in October, I have a ticket :D, and because i really want it on vinyl, Bloc Party - Silent Alarm.

    Colter Wall - Songs Of The Plains

    If it is this I am beyond excited. His debut blew me away.

    I have a TMR Vault package of Margo Price sitting on my shelf, still in the mailer that I can't give away, so a country pick bothers me a bit...particular if its new music. I'd be happy for an old classic, bluegrass or something on the folky side...

    All good though...

    Willie Nelson - My Way is my guess (Colter Wall is not the only staff/forum favorite)

    Also wasn’t there a hint somewhere about it being a staff or forum favorite?

    Of course, it would never happen, but a reissue of Johnny Cash's Unearthed box set would be awesome.

    Might be lost on an American audience but whenever I see the word cake I think of the Brass Eye Drugs episode. Some dimwit
    MP even addressed parliament about the cake epedemic after it was broadcast.



    If you haven’t seen it, hunt down the whole episode, is hilarious. Then watch the paedophile one, is an even better send up of the media again!!

    My guess is a new album by Sam Hunt.
    (Yeah, I've no idea about country music, I'll just watch you guys trying to decide if a pizza is half a sandwich or whatever)

    If it's along these lines, would love Red Headed Stranger. That'll be my guess until we know it's Colter.

    Willie Nelson -- Red Headed Stranger
