6LP Anniversary Collection includes Nothing's Shocking, Ritual de lo Habitual Plus the Vinyl Debut of Rarities Comp Kettle Whistle Extractions & A Complete Live Show from 1990!
Jane's Addiction will celebrate a Sterling Spoon Anniversary in 2016 to commemorate the release of Ritual de lo Habitual and the first Lollapalooza. The revelry began in July when the band launched a highly anticipated tour that includes Ritual de lo Habitual played in its entirety each night. The party will continue in October when the band releases Sterling Spoon, an epic, six-LP collection that includes Nothing's Shocking and Ritual de lo Habitual, along with the vinyl debuts for the 1990 concert recording Live From The Palladium and a selection of rarities, demos, and live takes from the 1997 compilation Kettle Whistle.
The band, which has been directly involved with the set's creative direction, selected LA-based Ernesto Yerena to produce the limited edition sets (5000 copies) cover art. The collection focuses mainly on the Los Angeles-based quartet's first incarnation – Perry Ferrell (vocals), Dave Navarro (guitar), Eric Avery (bass), and Stephen Perkins (drums) – and includes the band's landmark studio albums: Nothing's Shocking (1988) and Ritual de lo Habitual (1990). It was those recordings that made the group underground heroes with songs like: "Jane Says," "Ocean Size," "Mountain Song," and the #1 Modern Rock hits "Been Caught Stealing" and "Stop!"
Jane's Addiction made great albums, but it was the band's live shows that cemented its legend. As a testament to it stage prowess, Sterling Spoon includes the group's entire performance at the Hollywood Palladium from December 1990, a concert recording that was originally released in 2008 as part of the Rhino box set A Cabinet of Curiosities. Among the highlights are thunderous performances of such classics as: "Three Days," "Stop!" and "Summertime Rolls."
