27 Songs, 2 Hours 9 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Spin Doctors made their name with constant touring and a rabid fan base, but their chart success with three masterful singles, “Jimmy Olsen’s Blues,” “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” helped their album become a staple in CD collections of the early ‘90s. The group’s relaxed vibe and deliberate catchiness ensured them massive radio play with an album of solid songs. It was a great feature for a band often lumped into the jam-band scene, where songs are often abandoned in a search for the eternal groove and jam. “What Time Is It?” is a light funk. “Forty or Fifty” is a spellbinding ballad. “Refrigerator” throws in some tough electric guitar. “How Could You Want Him (When You Know You Can Have Me)” is an emotional, wordy and symbolic plea from an overlooked guy in love with an unresponsive woman. This Anniversary Edition includes the B-side boogie-blues, “Hard to Exist,” a slew of early 1989-1990 demos that prove how solid the group were from the beginning, a professional live recording of “Turn It Upside Down” and a lo-fi live version of “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong.”
