Counting Crows gained popularity following the release of its first
album, August and Everything After (1993). With the breakthrough hit
single "Mr. Jones" (1993), the album sold more than 7 million copies in the
United States. The band received two Grammy Awards nominations in 1994, one for
"Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal" (for "Round Here") and one
for "Best New Artist". The follow-up album, Recovering the Satellites,
reached number one on the US Billboard 200 album chart and reached number one in
several other countries. All but one of their subsequent albums was top 10 on
the Billboard 200 list.

Indigo Girls) and the addition of "Raining in Baltimore," "August and Everything After" was complete.
The band hit the road to open up for a diverse group of artists, including
The Cranberries, Suede, and
The band spent 1994 touring North America and Europe, capping the year with a summer cover story in Rolling Stone and an eight-show stand opening for
The Rolling Stones' Voodoo Lounge tour. Then, as quickly as they had emerged, Counting Crows
retreated to San Francisco, weary from the attention and the road.
For their second album, Counting Crows relied on the same setup that spawned "August and Everything After."
