Blind Melon – Soup

I used to own this one, back in the day. Likely my copy was victim of needing the cash more than I needed the disc, so I’ve lived without it for far too long. So, I’ve been on the hunt for this album for quite a while (and I didn’t care if it was the digipak or the regular case version), but for some reason I never seemed to find it. I even (recently) mentioned to Bop to keep his eyes peeled on my behalf. It’s not a Grail item per se, because it’s ostensibly out there easily enough (I assume), but still…

Then, at the eternally amazing Sonic Boom, I found the digipak for $5.99 in pristine shape all around. Nobody had even completed the word search on the back cover (I remember several people doing that, the fools), and I did a little dance of joy right there in the aisle. The Dance Of Soup Joy.

For the longest time, it was No Soup For Me! Now, it is SOUP FOR ME!

The Racy Lacy Anniversary Series, Part 3 (CD)

From its New Orleans funeral parade intro, through its easy swingin’ main bits, to its crashing end, Galaxie is one of Blind Melon’s best songs. The rest of the album stands up as purely phenomenal too.

Blind Melon did a thing, and they did it really well. Everyone loved the first record, but I always thought this one was waaaaaay better.

It grooves, moves, rocks, and it’s miles better than a lot of other stuff I heard then. R.I.P. Shannon.
