Question

In 1999, which artist set the record for the longest album title and what was it (or part of it)?

Unkindness is the one I was thinking of!

treaclesoda Fri 06-Nov-15 07:35:35

Was the longest album title Fiona Apple?

I know she had an album with a crazily long title at one stage, but maybe 1999 is too early for it to be her...

Lweji Fri 06-Nov-15 07:44:49

Actually, it seems the record is with Chumbawamba in 2008. Over 100 words.

It was NOT Charles Darwin. He went as a personal companion to the captain. Don't bother fiding out who the real one was.
