Attention, levitra Spin Doctors’ fans and collectors! For the first time, cure Pocket Full Of Kryptonite will be available on vinyl in the US! (When the album first came out in 1991 it was only available on CD & Cassette in the US.) NOW, viagra fans can Pre-order this special GREEN VINYL edition and expect to receive it sometime in October.
Pocket Full of Kryptonite, originally pressed in 1991 sold over six million copies worldwide and was on Billboard’s popchart for an incredible 115 straight weeks. As a jam band in the vein of Blues Traveler and Phish, Spin Doctors built a grassroots following by playing anywhere and everywhere. After a live EP caught their early potential, they released this uncharacteristically tight debut album. Featuring several hits that couldhave appeared on a Steve Miller Band album, Kryptonite became an immediate frat-rock favorite. Thanks to a spotless production, the tight groove of “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” “Two Princes,” and “Jimmy Olsen’s Blues” immediately connected with audiences who seemed to find singer Chris Barron’s hapless hippie lyrics and goofy grin a winning combination. –Rob O’Connor
The reissue of Pocket Full Of Kryptonite by SoundStageDirect is a special project for both the band and Seth Frank, President and founder of SoundStageDirect. Seth’s passion for vinyl started at the young age of 11 when he began working at the Princeton Record Exchange Exchange. It was in that very record store where a friendship between Seth and Chris Barron, the lead singer of the Spin Doctors solidified over a mutual love of music.As the legend goes, Chris Barron went in to the Princeton Record Exchange in Princeton, N.J., when he was about 13 years old. He met 15-year-old Seth who at the time worked at the store which Chris thought was really cool. With $3 of hard-earned allowance in his pocket, Chris asked Seth, ‘What’s a really good album that’s like, cheap?’ Seth said, “Dude, ‘Live At Leeds,’ It’s a killer album.” And so Chris bought his first vinyl album for 99 cents, and walked out with enough money left over for a slice of pizza and a soda.The two teenagers who bonded over their passion for music and vinyl records in particular are still friends today, coming full circle with the limited edition kryptonite-green vinyl release of Pocket Full Of Kryptonite. It’s very clear both men still share the same excitement about bringing music to people, each in their own way.The Spin Doctors are currently on tour with all of the original members (Chris, Barron, Eric Schenkman, Aaron Comess & Mark White).
