There were many jam-oriented blues rockers in New York during the early '90s, but only the Spin Doctors made it big. And they made it big because they not only could immerse themselves in a groove, but they also had concise pop skills. After nearly a year of solid touring, the Spin Doctors scored a huge success with the incessantly catchy 'Little Miss Can't Be Wrong.' Full of the loose, leisurely three-chord pop/rock jams the Spin Doctors specialize in, Pocket Full of Kryptonite had been around for nearly a year when MTV and radio began playing 'Little Miss Can't Be Wrong,' but once they started playing it, they couldn't stop. The Spin Doctors became an overnight sensation, selling millions of albums around the world with Pocket Full of Kryptonite reaching #3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. 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 could have 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.
