GinBlossomsNewMiserableExperience

New Miserable Experience is the breakthrough album by the pop-rock band the Gin Blossoms, released on August 4, 1992. The album was released to little fanfare and relatively lackluster reviews. However, nearly a year after its release the lead single, “Hey Jealousy”, entered the top 40, with “Found Out About You” following a few months later. The album eventually reached multi-platinum status.

The band’s guitarist, Doug Hopkins, was fired near the conclusion of the recording sessions for the album, ostensibly for his persistent alcohol problems. His replacement, Scott Johnson, is listed as a member of the band in the liner notes, but did not play on the album. Just as the album was becoming a success at the end of 1993, Hopkins committed suicide. (from Wikipedia) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Miserable_Experience

This is a classic children’s book, some of you may remember it. The book is still in print, but this pressing is from 1973 that included a read-along record. The record is very hard to find, but I lucked up and found both the book and record complete on eBay a few years ago.

I always wanted to put this to video, but was always busy, until now. I initially did this for my kids to enjoy, but after it was complete I realized how many could benefit from this wonderful story with read-along text. The pages are old, the record has pops, but it looks and sounds wonderfully classic. HD video quality for classroom or home viewing. Ages 4-8 recommended.
