Alice In Chains - Jar of Flies


Free UK tracked shipping on orders over £100.00

Anniversary albums are coming through thick and fast these days, what with time passing with reckless abandon and all that, but this 30th anniversary reissue of Alice In Chains' celebrated Jar Of Flies feels special. Sometimes remembered as being lesser gods in the grunge pantheon, in fact Alice In Chains had a sound all their own, with vocalist Layne Staley and guitarist Jerry Cantrell's gift for writing the kinds of songs you could really wallow in, and often keeping things surprisingly mellow. Released in January 1994, and featuring heavy hitters like Nutshell, No Excuses, and I Stay Away, Jar Of Flies is a largely acoustic EP, almost a blueprint for the MTV Unplugged album that would arrive two years later. - Flying Out

30th anniversary reissue of Alice in Chains’ acclaimed Jar of Flies.

Released exactly 30 years ago, January 25, 1994, the EP made history as the first of its format to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in its first week of sales. Following an exhausting and transformative tour in support of the group’s sophomore album Dirt (1992), Jar of Flies offered the Seattle grunge icons a chance to record music in a more relaxed environment and intimate, acoustic style. For the first time in the studio, singer Layne Staley, guitarist Jerry Cantrell and drummer Sean Kinney were joined by bassist Mike Inez, who joined Alice in Chains midway through their 1993 tour.

The self-produced EP acted as a spiritual sequel to the group’s last EP Sap (1992), which also featured a more acoustic-driven sound.

Tracks like “I Stay Away,” “No Excuses” and “Don’t Follow” showcased the range of Alice in Chains, further establishing them as one of the most unique and engaging rock bands of the decade. It garnered the group two Grammy Award nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance (“I Stay Away”) and Best Recording Package.
