No Rain" became Blind Melon's breakthrough single. In 1990, lead singer Shannon Hoon moved from Indiana to Los Angeles, California. Soon he met guitarist Rogers Stevens and bassist Brad Smith, Mississippi natives who had come to Los Angeles a year earlier. They began playing together and then recruited a second guitarist, Christopher Thorn.

The album stretches Blind Melon’s career, serving as a last glimpse at Shannon’s life and the impact he left on family members and friends. After his death, the band took little time to plug Shannon’s vocals through the studio and compile a format of rarities, cutting the corners a bit considering a lot of the material wasn’t meant to be the final product. The song is very reminiscent of Blind Melon’s folk roots, giving Nico an upbeat tempo but an overall relaxed atmosphere.

The album was released after lead singer Shannon Hoon's cocaine overdose that resulted in his death in 1995.
Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). The first album is truly a great album. Then a few months ago I got Soup, the 2nd album. Which took a little to get used to, then listed to it all the time. So I just had to get this one.
