Spin Doctors' Pocket Full Of Kryptonite 20th Anniversary Edition

.
Legacy have announced a August 20th release date for the double disc 20th Anniversary Edition of Spin Doctors' Pocket Full Of Kryptonite.

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.) If the tracks were 3 minutes long apiece, and spun 5 million times back-to-back, that would amount to 28 years of continuous airplay.

The double-disk Pocket Full Of Kryptonite: 20th Anniversary Edition will feature the remastered album plus rare, never before released demo recordings and live tracks from "back in the day".

Disk one will include a remastered version of the classic album. Its quintet of single releases ruled the charts for over 18 months:

- "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" (the first single, Billboard Hot 100 #17, Album Rock #2 for 4 weeks);

- "Two Princes" (the Grammy Awardฎ-nominated second single, Hot 100 #7, Album Rock #2 for 7 weeks);

- "Jimmy Olsen's Blues" (the third single, Hot 100 #78, Album Rock #8);

- "What Time Is It?" (the fourth single, Album Rock #26);

- "How Could You Want Him (When You Know You Could Have Me?)" (the fifth single, Album Rock #28).

Disk Two 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 current 2011 Spin Doctors tour started in the UK in mid-May, with shows in Liverpool, Glasgow, London and Manchester.
