Just Go Ahead Now: A Retrospective by Spin Doctors

If one wanted a prime example of the hyper-fickle nature of the modern recording industry, the checkered history of New York City's Spin Doctors would be hard to ignore. Launching the 1990s with a pair of the decade's most enduring modern-rock hits, "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" and "Two Princes" (and strong contenders such as "Jimmy Olsen's Blues"), the band's energetically rhythmic workouts (fronted by vocalist Chris Barron's ever-sunny demeanor) also helped spawn the whole "jam band" movement, replete with its own package tours--but don't hold that against them. Yet many critics assailed their supposedly retro roots, and the business may have had unrealistic expectations based on their early hits. By '96, their label had shown them the door; that "pocket full of kryptonite" proved to have had a surprisingly short half-life. Here then is a concise first chapter of their history, drawing five tracks each from You've Got to Believe in Something, Turn It Upside Down, and Pocket Full of Kryptonite, plus a cut from the live collection Homebelly Groove. Also included is a previously unreleased tribute to longtime booster and fan Howard Stern, the loopy, tongue-in-cheek "Miss America." --Jerry McCulley

First of all, I want to say that reason I am giving this album 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is so little previously unreleased material (just Miss America, in fact), and because it has no songs at all from their fourth release. I would still recommend that veteran Spin Doctors fans purchase it --- it will complete your collection, and it's nice to have all the songs from different albums on one CD to listen to in your car. The people I really recommend it too are those who are new to the Spin Doctors, or who, like a great many people, are only familiar with their work on Pocketful of Kryptonite. This an excellent introduction to the Spin Doctors. Tracts 1 - 5 are from the first album (Pocketful of Kryptonite), 6 - 10 are from the second (Turn It Upside Down, which, unfortunately, is no longer listed on Amazon), and 11-17, with the exception of Miss America, are from the third (You've Got To Believe in Something --- a commercial failure, but nonetheless their best album). The general sound of these guys is a what I call a funk-rock-blues feel, mostly electric guitar driven. The lead singer and primary song-writer, Chris Barron, is something of a hippie, and this comes through in his lyrics. Over all, they are a very fun group to listen too --- upbeat without being nauseatingly perky or pop. It is too bad that there are no songs here from the more experimental fourth album, Here Comes the Bride, but I still feel this CD is a good way to get a feel for the band.

What, just because these guys only released one huge album before their popularity passed doesn't mean they can't put together a great "Best Of"? It's true the debut "Pocket Full Of Kryptonite" was their best album, but many good songs came afterwards. This collection takes pretty evenly from their first 3 albums. Included are the monster hits "Two Princes", "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong", and "Jimmy Olsen's Blues", plus this has "Cleopatra's Cat", "I Can't Believe You're Still With Her", and a live "Refrigerator Car". This band is a good cross between the "Red Hot Chili Peppers" and "Blues Traveler", and I think it's time to give them another "spin".

The Spin Doctors are/were one of the best and most innovative bands of their time. They started to whole jam band movement with great songs like "Little Miss Cant Be Wrong", "Two Princes" and "jimmy olsens blues", later followed up by "big fat funky booty" and "you let your heart go too fast" this is great music that defined the early nineties. The music has a feel good sense that I really miss, and I pray to God that this isnt the last release from the Spin Doctors.

Yes I bought this cd. And all your getting is a collection if some old spins tunes. That's just about it. If the spins had made it a "best of" (as in they picked the songs that they thought were their best, not there most popular) album it would have a better track listing.
