Middle of Nowhere

MMMBop is a demo album by American pop rock group Hanson, released in 1996 independently after Boomerang (1995). It contains a few tracks that were later re-recorded for their Debut studio album Middle of Nowhere (1997). Of these tracks, the titular MMMBop is the most noteworthy, with this original version being just slightly longer than its counterpart on Middle of Nowhere. Many of theses tracks were also re-released on 3 Car Garage (1998). This album was not available in many stores and was sold primarily at Hanson's early concerts. Only a few hundred copies of this album were ever produced. It is sought after as a collector's item and it is uncommon to find a copy that is for sale. MMMBop was released on CD and cassette tape formats (the latter of which seems to be easier to find).
