In Your Wildest Dreams is an EP by the alternative country band Whiskeytown, released as a promotional item in 1997.[1]

"The Rain Won't Help You When It's Over" is a True Believers cover. The song's composer, Alejandro Escovedo, had this to say about the song: “I’ve always held that song very dear because it’s the first one I ever wrote and it was such a staple of the [True] Believers’ set and sound... ‘Rain’ holds a special place for me, but I always felt the Believers never did a great recording of that tune. So I was happy to hear Whiskeytown did it. I love their version of it. Even though Ryan forgot the second verse.”[2]
