Multi-Platinum, Grammy-Winning Band's Debut Will Be Newly Remastered With Rare And Previously Unreleased Studio And Live Recordings!

Hootie & The Blowfish are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the band's debut album, 'Cracked Rear View,' this year. The monumental record is currently the tenth best-selling album of all time U.S., certified 21x Platinum by the RIAA since its 1994 debut, as well as the best-selling debut album of all time.

To commemorate the anniversary, the band will release two new versions of the monumental album with remastered, rare, and unreleased audio.

The band – Mark Bryan, Dean Felber, Darius Rucker and Jim "Soni" Sonefeld – recorded Cracked Rear View at NRG Studios in Los Angeles with producer Don Gehman. Released on July 5, 1994, the album became a musical phenomenon, topping the album charts in Canada, New Zealand, and the U.S., where it reached #1 five different times during 1995.

The album generated four massive singles: "Hold My Hand," "Only Wanna Be With You," "Time," and "Let Her Cry," which earned Hootie & the Blowfish a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group and also saw them recognized as Best New Pop Group by the Grammy Awards.

Both new versions of 'Cracked Rear View' are packed with rare recordings. Among the highlights are early versions of many of their biggest hits recorded in 1990 and 1991 and only available previously on cassettes sold at their live shows; the band's five-song 1992 Kootchypop EP; and other unreleased and rare studio tracks.

In the liner notes, Sommer writes: "On stage, Hootie & the Blowfish really sought to combine the intimacy, sensitivity, and whirling dervish qualities of 1980s R.E.M. with the muscular he-man-ism of Springsteen and the E Street Band... The Pittsburgh set captures all this rather wonderfully."
