The Doctors Are In: A ’90s-Era Rock Band Returns to Its Bluesy Roots

More about the acclaimed album:
In a four & 1/2-star rave, ALL MUSIC/iTunes Editorial said the CD “feels like an unapologetic throwback to classic Chess records from the ’50s and ’60s. That immediacy is striking, as The Spin Doctors have never sounded so alive on record,” and No Depression buzzed, it “rocks like a rodeo bull on amphetamines and had my blood pumping from the first few chords.”

The album is a ten-song collection of original songs, described by lead singer Chris Barron as a “ramshackle, broken carriage running down a cobblestone hill, with pots and pans, and a screaming baby…”

This is the blues album the band was always meant to make, and their confidence shows, as they give the songs lots of room to breath and let the tracks come alive via the road-tested musicianship of Chris Barron (vocals), Aaron Comess (drums), Eric Schenkman (guitar) and Mark White (bass). With no overdubs, irreverent lyrics, soulful drums and guitar licks that are on fire, ‘If The River Was Whisky’ captures lightning in a bottle and further cements Spin Doctors’ reputation as a live act to be reckoned with. Perhaps Schenkman puts it best: “we’ve been playing together for 25 years & we’re all badasses!” Listen to streaming samples, here: https://soundcloud.com/spin-doctors/sets/if-the-river-was-whiskey-album

More about Spin Doctors:

When top-class musicianship and great songwriting meet, the result can help to define an era. Such was the case with Spin Doctors’ ‘Pocket Full Of Kryptonite’, one of the biggest smashes of the 1990s, selling over 10 million copies worldwide. Featuring hit after hit, from ‘Two Princes’ to ‘Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong’ and more, the original album reached #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, made the magazine’s Top 100 list of the Best-Selling Albums of The Decade, hit #2 in the UK and #1 in Australia and New Zealand, was certified 3x Platinum in Canada, Gold in Germany, France, Holland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Singapore, and cemented the group’s debut as an international phenomenon. In fact, ‘Two Princes’ was the most-played rock song in the world in 1993, and was recently certified by BMI with 3 million international radio plays (‘Little Miss’ is at the 2 Million mark.) As a live band, the core members of Spin Doctors are among the best in the business, a fact often overshadowed by their commercial success, but arguably more important than ever. Following 2011 the release of ‘Pocket Full of Kryptonite: 20th Anniversary Edition’, Spin Doctors hit the road to do what they do best: perform great pop/rock and blues songs for live audiences. Like their H.O.R.D.E. allies Phish, Blues Traveler, Allman Brothers and more, and like The Black Crowes, Counting Crows and other respected contemporaries, Spin Doctors are a reminder that hits and chops needn’t be mutually exclusive. The wildly favorable audience reaction to their ‘Kryptonite’ tour helped paved the way for ‘If The River Was Whiskey’. ‘If The River Was Whiskey’ was produced by Spin Doctors. All songs written by Spin Doctors (Shogun Songs Inc./ BMI) except “Some Other Man Instead” Written by Spin Doctors, Arne Hovda, (Trak One Music/BMI) Erik Norvald Røe (Tono)
