Grammy Nominated 1996 Album Available on Vinyl for the First Time!
In the late 80's the Gin Blossoms indelible jangle-pop sound was evolving during radio's diverse mix of hair bands and grunge music. Taking their name from a caption on a W.C. Fields photo, Gin Blossoms hit the big time with their 1992 album New Miserable Experience. It kept the band on the charts for almost three years with singles "Hey Jealousy," "Allison Road," "Until I Fall Away," "Mrs Rita," and "Found Out About You." New Miserable Experience took the airwaves by siege and held MTV hostage in the process, rocketing the band into the mainstream and going on to sell over 4 million copies.
1996 saw the final record of the decade for Gin Blossoms Congratulations I'm Sorry. The album brought two more hits; "Follow You Down" which spent ten weeks in the Top Ten and "As Long As It Matters" which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Performance by a Duo or Group. The album broke into Billboard's Top Ten and a year of touring helped push the record past 1,500,000 in sales. In 5 years, the band released 2 EP's, 2 LP's and over 12 singles that fueled record sales to over 7 million. Their blend of pop & rock, now known as Jangle-Pop, became a musical force that helped define the sound of 90's radio.
