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. Nico is mostly an acoustic effort, so it is easy to imagine the personal and stripped down nature of it. For anyone who got into the band before hearing this album, it would be a treat to get the last bits of music Blind Melon left before.

Listen free to Blind Melon – Nico (The Pusher, Hell and more). The album was released after lead singer Shannon Hoon's cocaine overdose that resulted in his death in 1995
There turned out to be quite a few leftovers and demos laying around, so the surviving bandmembers decided to pay tribute to Hoon, almost exactly one year after his death, with the rarities compilation Nico (titled after Hoon's young daughter). The 13-track collection showed that many of these songs were as strong as the ones that had appeared on their prior albums, while a portion of the proceeds from album sales were donated to the Musicians Assistants Program (MAP).
