Blind Melon - Soup Demos 1994

Blind Melon recieved great publicity from Shannon Hoon's friendship with Axl Rose, and his backing vocal performances on the Use Your Illusion albums. Their self-titled debut album, and notably the hit single No Rain were very well recieved, the album as a whole an excellent funky rocker.

In 1994 they teamed up with producer Andy Wallace (yes, some of you will know who he is) to work on their second album Soup, this bootleg being the basis of it, as most of these tracks are simply unpolished versions of the final tracks. Sadly the following year Shannon died of an OD. He's much missed, but the band are back doing their thing after 12 years (they recorded one more after he died), having recently released their fourth album For My Friends.
