Editorial Reviews

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 2 disc version of their smash debut album is a must-own for fans.

Disc one of the double-CD 20th Anniversary Edition will include 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.

ABOUT THE BONUS MATERIAL: These 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.

Format: Audio CD
Pocket Full of Kryptonite is really one of the albums that most influenced me. It was the first modern, and first rock album that I bought. Yes, I bought it for Two Princes. But the rest of the album was so important to me. Tracks like Forty or Fifty showcased a certain atmosphere, tracks like Off My Line and What Time Is It showed me what it meant to rock out.
The Spin Doctors are effectively a power trio. Plus a singer. Besides the excellent quality of the songs on this album, this album was mixed correctly, which is one of my complaints about the band's subsequent albums - they started to downplay the musical strengths the band had.
This album is really, really consistent. Some of the songs take a little longer to appreciate (the vocal for Refrigerator Car is not especially catchy, but it's just an incredible force once you get used to it.)
As far as the tracks being remastered - I can't hear a difference. I might be imagining it, but at best, I think I might hear some of the drums a little more clearly.

The real highlight of this release is the second disc. After giving it a listen, I can honestly say.... yes, buy it.
The demos are really fascinating. As a person who knows the studio versions inside and out, and has listened to plenty of live recordings, this is quite an insight into the ways that songs developed.
Most of the songs retain the same general format, and the main difference is that the solos are different. The biggest changes are in the vocal. For many, the lyrics had already coalesced, but the phrasing hadn't. Barron doesn't sound as confident as he normally does - on any the studio albums, or live recordings. These changes in phrasing are really interesting, particularly on Forty or Fifty.

I got roped into taking my girlfriend to a Hanson concert because her original companion flaked out on her.

Since I'm a normal, heterosexual male who appreciates music created by musicians and not chimpanzees with pencils and estrogen supplements, I, initially, refused to accompany her. In all fairness, not long before, I was tricked into going to another concert with this group of clowns called the Fall-Out Boys, whose name originates from their style of music, which requires that you have your skull irradiated until your brain is liquified in order to enjoy it.

Regardless, because I love my woman and feared retribution in the form of cold shoulders and firmed clenched legs, I agreed to go with her to see Hanson, with the single requirement that I didn't have to listen to it.

So, in combination with my handy Denon earbuds and a fully charged battery, I proceeded to rock out to SD, Korn and Jane's Addiction for the duration of the performance.

These guys have done some interesting things through the years, mostly early on, but a 20th Anniversary release gets no merit from me when both discs carry a lot of the same songs, just different versions, done live or as part of the creative process that led to the recorded product. I always feel cheated when bands do this. Like no effort had to be done to compile this collection! The rhythm section has always been the glue for this band~!!
