Spin Doctors Official Downloads
General info

Since the 2002 relaunch of the Spin Doctors' official website, the band releases some audio and video stuff there every now and then. Here's a list of all music and video downloads that were/are provided on the official site since 2002. As with the rest of the discography, the most recent releases are on top of the list.


Crosscut Saw
(official free mp3 release via spindoctors.com; April 2nd, 2006)
(status: available)


Written by R.G. Ford, and made famous by the great Albert King, this track was recorded on September 14, 2005 in Burlington, VT while aboard the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus. "After several months of doing this song during soundcheck, and with Chris being sick that day, it seemed like the perfect song to record on The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus,...basically a recording studio on wheels. [...] Aaron was forced to play on a strange electronic drum kit, Chris was sick and there was only 1 hour to get this done. Given all that, I think it turned out pretty well. Simply,......basics again in one shot, followed by Eric's lead vocals" (details provided by JB on the Spin Doctors board).
