Three Chords and a Cloud of Dust II is a live album by Watershed. The title stems from their original Epic Records live release Three Chords and a Cloud of Dust; both recordings were done at the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Ohio.

Three Chords and a Cloud of Dust II is the last Watershed album to feature Mark "Poochie" Borror. The opening track features Brian Phillips of CD102.5 (WWCD), Columbus's alternative rock station.

The album was recorded at the 2006 Hate Michigan Rally, which was opened by garage rockers B.A. Baracus. It was released in the summer of 2007 with CD release party at the Lifestyles Community Pavilion.

The winter 2008 tour to support Three Chords and a Cloud of Dust II serves as the starting point for bassist Joe Oestreich's memoir, Hitless Wonder: A Life in Minor League Rock and Roll, released by Lyons Press in June 2012.

A double album is an audio album which spans two units of the primary medium in which it is sold, typically records and compact disc. A double album is usually, though not always, released as such because the recording is longer than the capacity of the medium. Recording artists often think of double albums as being a single piece artistically; however, there are exceptions such as John Lennon's Some Time in New York City and Pink Floyd's Ummagumma and OutKast's Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. Another example of this approach is Works Volume 1 by Emerson Lake and Palmer, where side one featured Keith Emerson, side two Greg Lake, side three Carl Palmer, and side four was by the entire group.

<i>Ascension</i> (John Coltrane album) 1966 studio album by John Coltrane

Ascension is a jazz album by John Coltrane recorded in 1965 and released in 1966. It is often considered a watershed in Coltrane's work, with the albums recorded before it being more conventional in structure and the albums recorded after it being looser, free jazz inspired works. In addition, it signaled Coltrane's interest in moving away from the quartet format. Coltrane described Ascension in a radio interview as a "big band thing", although it resembles no big band recording made before it. The most obvious antecedent is Ornette Coleman's octet recording, Free Jazz: A Collective Improvisation, which—like Ascension—is a continuous 40-minute performance with ensemble passages and without breaks. Jazz musician Dave Liebman, commenting on Ascension, recalled that the album was the "torch that lit the free jazz thing".
