Overview

In 1991 you couldn’t walk by a college dorm room that wasn’t playing Pocket Full Of Kryptonite. 20 years later, memories may be hazy, but what still stands out is the music. The songs are undeniably as fresh today as they were 20 years ago.

The original album has been re-mastered and paired with the early demo recordings that were previously available only on cassette at Spin Doctors’ legendary early gigs. This two-disc version of their smash debut album is a must-own for fans.

Disc One of the double-CD 20th Anniversary Edition includes a re-mastered version of the classic album. Its quintet of single releases ruled the charts for over 18 months and included such memorable hits as: “Little Miss Can't Be Wrong,” “Two Princes” (the Grammy Award®-nominated second single), “Jimmy Olsen's Blues,” “What Time Is It?,” “How Could You Want Him (When You Know You Could Have Me?).”

Disc Two of the 20th Anniversary Edition is comprised of early demo recordings by the band and is a must-own for Spin Doctors fans. These demos were only ever available for sale at gigs on two cassettes, entitled Can’t Say No (1989) and Piece Of Glass (1990), cherished by fans who’ve held on to the tapes all these years. Songs from the demos were later developed on Pocket Full Of Kryptonite and the subsequent albums, Homebelly Groove...Live (1993), Turn It Upside Down (1994) and You've Got to Believe in Something (1996). Two of the demo tunes - “Can’t Say No” and “Turn It Upside Down” - do not appear on any official Spin Doctors album.

The bonus demos showcase the band in their formative stage, and make it clear why Spin Doctors were soon signed to Epic Records. This is not a manufactured sound. It is the music of a real rock band who really had it together live. Spin Doctors had played hundreds of gigs everywhere in the Tri-State Area prior to being signed to a major label.

The 20th Anniversary Edition package also includes new liner notes written Cree McCree and many rare, unseen and intimate photos and memorabilia from the band’s private collection. From the Label
