“Copper Blue” the debut album by Sugar – released on September 4, 1992
I was planning to celebrate the 30th anniversary of this album last year, but that has come and gone. So today, we celebrate this great album turning 31.
I knew of Bob Mould mostly from his solo work after his seminal punk band Hüsker Dü broke up. Turns out that I really embraced Bob Mould and his solo work and then along came Sugar. I blogged about my first experience hearing Sugar and the rest is history.

Bob Mould Went Alternative
For the album’s 20th anniversary, I saw Bob play the entire Copper Blue album live, which was a dream.
31 years later, this album holds up so very well. I play it a few times a year and I still love the sound, the guitar, the vocals and appreciate how it was so important in 1992. Sugar lasted about 4 years before they broke up, but this album stand the test of time to be a classic in alternative.
