iTunes Review

Blind Melon's 1992 self-titled debut album was the sound of a new band finding its voice on record. The group members—mostly Southerners and Midwesterners who'd moved to Los Angeles—had been weaned on early Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Faces, and Allman Brothers albums, and they sought to re-create that organic sound in the emerging grunge era. "Sleepyhouse" is a tribute to the house in Durham, N.C., where they'd all relocated and forged a deep chemistry, but it was in Seattle's London Bridge Studios, with producer Rick Parashar of Pearl Jam's Ten fame, where Blind Melon crafted these rough bluesy and psychedelic rock tunes. The album's single "No Rain" (with its eye-catching "Bee Girl" video) catapulted the band into the mainstream, while acoustic-electric tunes like "I Wonder," "Dear Ol' Dad," and "Holyman" captured a loose vibe that went back to the early '70s. The 2013 reissue includes five of Blind Melon's first recordings cut in 1991 with Neil Young producer David Briggs at L.A.'s Sound City Studios; they were for the unreleased Sippin' Time EP. Band members Chris Thorn and Brad Smith remixed the tracks for reissue.

No Rain = Perfection 👌

And if you're not familiar with it, give it more than one listen. You'll be happy you did.

I love this album

This album was so good! I just wish they were still around to do more. So sad :(


Formed: 1989 in Columbus, MS

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Whereas most up-and-coming alternative bands of the early '90s borrowed from the leaders of the pack (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails, etc.), Blind Melon were an exception to the rule -- their roots lay in classic rock (Lynyrd Skynyrd, Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin). And while a promising career lay ahead of them, tragedy would ultimately end the band abruptly. The group came together in 1989 in Los Angeles, although all their respective members had migrated there from other U.S. locales (singer...
