This was the first EP to ever reach #1 on the Billboard 200 United States album chart, and was the only EP to ever gain this distinction until 2004's "Collision Course" by Jay Z & Linkin Park.
Asked about the title, frontman Layne Staley replied: "They gave him two jars full of flies. One of the jars they overfed, the other jar they underfed. The one they overfed flourished for a while, then all the flies died from overpopulation. The one they underfed had most of the flies survive all year. I guess there's a message in there somewhere. Evidently that experiment had a big impact on Jerry".
Re-released with the Sap EP as a double CD pack.
Videos for "No Excuses" and "I Stay Away" were made to promote this EP.
Written and recorded at London Bridge Studio (Seattle, Washington) between September 7th-14th, 1993.
Mixed at Scream Studio between September 17th-22nd, 1993.
