Like It Cracked Rear View (1994) -- You sometimes forget that Hootie actually is a pretty decent band.  In the middle of the grungy nineties, they put out this beer-soaked record for college boys that features "Hold My Hand," "Let Her Cry," "Only Wanna Be With You," "Time" and other wholesome good-time tunes that serves as both their first album and their greatest hits.  Now that the radio's not playing these songs 24 hours a day, it's an enjoyable album.  And cheap: I bought mine used for fifty cents.
