ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 2005 YakMusic in Australia (and formerly New Zealand) began gathering a variety of artists from all over the world (USA, UK, Argentina, and Canada) for an exciting project, dedicated to Brad Smith, Rogers Stevens, Christopher Thorn, Glen Graham and the late amazing Shannon Hoon - aka as Blind Melon.

Bands submitted versions of their favorite Blind Melon tunes, and YakMusic selected, produced and packaged the songs together to make a touching tribute to a very special band of the 90s.

The album, Twenty Stories Below, spanned almost five years of Blind Melon favorites over three albums and also includes a cover of a never-before-released Blind Melon demo called Tickled Pink, recorded and performed by Jena Kraus (who featured on Blind Melon's Mouthful of Cavities).

Due to popular demand the album was re-released for a limited time in it's physical form on 10th December 2010.

In 2013, YakMusic announced a re-issue of Twenty Stories Below in digital format and packaged as a Digital Release Deluxe Edition for release in June 2013. Seven bonus tracks were added, including the previously unreleased 'Ever had the Feeling' performed/produced by 12Daze (& mixed by Blind Melon's Brad Smith) and a rock/punk/hip-hop version of No Rain performed by David Aaron's Shinobi Ninja.

Other bands that feature on this stunning tribute are:
Superextra,
The Velmas,
Easily Amused,
MoeDeLL,
Kurt Vatland of La Madness,
David Aaron (aka aka D.A./Duke Sims) of Shinobi Ninja,
Empreinte Galactique,
Flames of Troy,
Spider,
The Holy Crabs,
12 Daze,
Jamie Shields,
and The Drawing Room (Joel Bruyere of Thousand Foot Krutch).

we've been waiting for this
I have been listening to this non-stop since it arrived. I don't normally enjoy tributes to bands I love but I have to agree with the other reviewers who said that this disc really captures the spirit. Highly recommended to any real Blind Melon fan!

Awesome tribute album
Every song on this CD is really well done... very good interpretations from the artists and bands on the CD. For me, the highlights of this album are "Deserted", "Drive", and "Tickled Pink". To be honest, I don't really enjoy the version of "Life Ain't So Shitty" as much as the other songs, but definitely buy this album! You won't be disappointed.

"Breathing new life into Blind Melon is a success"
I've been wanting this CD ever since I heard about it, and I finally ordered it. It came today, and I listened to it as soon as I got back from my mailbox. It is beautiful. I can't stop listening to it. I love the ways in which all these artists have breathed some "new life" into these tunes. This is a must have, in my humble opinion. GET IT!
