The ‘90s are littered with rock albums that will undoubtedly be talked about for years to come. And there's one group whose albums from the decade can easily stand among their peers, the woefully underrated Blind Melon. Perhaps due in part to a career cut so tragically short that they never properly received their deserved accolades, 1992's Blind Melon and 1995's Soup(as well as a posthumous outtakes collection, 1996's Nico) sound as invigorating today as they did when they first appeared.
Despite high expectations, the group's sophomore release, 1995's Soup, was panned by critics upon its original release. Over the years however, the album has rightfully become recognized as one of the decade's most underrated rock gems, spawning such standouts as "Galaxie," "Toes Across the Floor," and "Mouthful of Cavities." However, just over two months after the album's release, frontman Shannon Hoon died while on tour from a drug overdose, at the age of 28.
Limited edition 180g vinyl pressing of Soup cut from the original stereo tapes by Kevin Grayat Cohearent Audio and pressed and plated at RTI. Housed in a Stoughton deluxe gatefold old style tip-on jacket with original insert.
