"I think people are hungry for this record."
—Wherehouse Music's Bob Bell

SUPER TUESDAYS 2000

The Fourth Quarter Promises Enough Excitement For A Month Of Tuesdays
The 4Q rush to the end of the year is typically chock-full of superstar releases, and Y2K is no different.

Wherehouse Music's Bob Bell took time out from ghost-writing "Pop Eye" for the L.A. Times' Steve Hochman to pen this for us: "Every Tuesday from now until the end of the year, we're going to see a lot of big records."

Starting with Halloween, though, there are four straight weeks of mega-release "Super Tuesdays," not to mention a Presidential election:

Oct. 31:
Babyface
(Epic)
Erykah Badu
(Motown)
Godsmack
(Republic/Universal)
Master P
(No Limit/Priority)
Outkast
(LaFace/Arista)
U2
(Interscope)

Bell: "There's still a huge fan base for U2… I think people are hungry for this record. They've made the kind of back-to-rock & roll record they had to make. If anyone doubted them, those doubts will be put to rest."

Nov. 7:
blink-182
(MCA)
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
(Ruthless/Epic)
Fatboy Slim
(Astralwerks/Virgin)
Jennifer Lopez
(Epic/550 Music)
R. Kelly
(Jive)
Spice Girls
(Virgin)
Tyrese (RCA)

Bell: "The Spice Girls is anybody's call. The last one surprised people by how well it did over time. I think the potential is there for this one to surprise also."

Nov. 14:
Dru Hill
(Def Soul/IDJ)
Keith Sweat
(Elektra/EEG) Offspring (Columbia/ CRG)
Rage Against the Machine
(Epic)
Ricky Martin
(Columbia/CRG)
Sade
(Epic)

Bell: "Sade could be a real sleeper. It's been a long time since her last record, and people might not realize how large her upper-demo fan base is. They will come out for her."

Nov. 21:
112
(Bad Boy/Arista)
Backstreet Boys
(Jive)
Beatles
(Apple/Capitol)
Ice Cube
(Priority)
"NOW Vol. 5"
(Columbia/CRG)
Sugar Ray
(Lava/Atlantic/Atl. Grp.)
Tim McGraw
(Curb/Atl. Grp.)
Usher
(LaFace/Arista)
Wu-Tang Clan
(Loud/Columbia/CRG)

Bell: "The Backstreet Boys will be the biggest pop record of the season, but I think Limp Bizkit [10/7] has the potential to be the biggest rock record."
