Early Mornin’ Stoned Pimp is Kid Rock’s third full-length album. It was distributed by his own label, Top Dog Records. There are two pressings of this CD; the first, the 1996 original pressing, has the Top Dog logo on the actual CD while the 1999 reissue it just a basic labeled disc. Kid Rock used the money he made from his 1994/1995 monthly Bootleg Series cassettes as well as becoming the janitor at The White Room Studios to purchase recording time. “Intro” has been used by the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons at their games. This album is not backed musically by the Twisted Brown Trucker Band as many report. He did not start arranging the group into a full-fledged backing band until he began pushing for major label attention in 1997.
