Biography

The Black Crowes made old-fashioned Southern rock during an era when forward-looking musical styles were far more popular. Nonetheless, since their 1990 debut, this Georgia band, led by frontman Chris Robinson and his guitarist brother Rich, have proven to be a popular touring act, churning out sensual blues-rock that recalls the Rolling Stones and other classic-rock groups.

Editorial Reviews

Formed in Georgia in the mid-'80s by brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, the Black Crowes came of age in L.A. and shot to stardom with their 1990 debut Shake Your Money Maker. Scoring #4 on the Billboardr 200, the disc delivered the hits 'She Talks To Angels' and 'Hard To Handle.' The Crowes' hard and fast rock sound full of bluesy Stones swagger and echoes of the Faces triumphed, and their second album, The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion ('92), hit #1. Following that, the band entered the studio to make what was to be the album TALL, but the electrifying tracks cut during those sessions have been unreleased until now. This historic new 2-CD set also includes the BAND sessions, recorded in 1997 when the Crowes convened to track a loose and organic set of rock gems spotlighting their range and maturity. Together, these previously unissued works fill in long-missing gaps in the Crowes' creative journey.

Great rocking album from the Black Crowes.
Charles H. Beattie
This is one of the Crowes' best albums, in my opinion, and while I love a great number of songs from "By Your Side," the vibe is much better on "Band."
Matthew David Ritchey
Builds to a mild crescendo, then slows down again, short blues guitar solo, very cool!

As a long time Black Crowes fan, someone who was there from the very beginning, hearing Jealous Again on the local radio station and buying their debut album, I really never thought this day would come. NEW Black Crowes material! After all this time, after the disappointment of Lions, the band's breakup, the solo albums, etc. I had pretty much come to terms with what I thought would be all the Crowes music I would ever own.

It was not meant to be. You see, I routinely check the New and Future release section of Amazon.com and still remember my excitement that July evening when there on the computer screen it said The Black Crowes: the Lost Crowes. I couldn't believe it! There was even a picture of the cd cover and a short synopsis explaining this was to be a two cd set of "session recordings" by the Crowes in 1997. List price $22.99. I couldn't care less what the asking price was, I wanted this! Well, I began the countdown to the release date: August 29, 2006. Then, as the day got closer I heard that the date had been pushed back? No explanation. Rumors began to swirl about Master Tapes and legal issues. Undaunted, I went into the nearest record store that week to shop, and what did I find? One copy of the the Lost Crowes.

After my purchase, I found out I was one of the lucky few to acquire this selection. Seems Rhino records was indeed re-issuing it due to a manufacturing defect. Hummm, that explains why when I put disc 1, the Tall sessions into my cd player it said there was only 10 tracks. And the other disc, which was supposed to have 10 tracks on it, actually had 16! Who cares! All the music was there for me to enjoy. All to myself. The rest of you guys would have to wait another month. Well, it's finally here.

The Black Crowes have a knack for making appealing blues/rock music with a commercial edge. This could be good, or this could be bad. Fortunately, on this two-disc set (as on their previous records), it's mostly good.

The two albums here ("Tall" and "Band") features previously unreleased performances. Overall, the songs soar--BAND's "Wyoming and Me," "Peace Anyway," "Another Roadside Tragedy," and "Never Forget This Song" rank among the Crowes' best, while TALL's "Sunday Buttermilk Waltz," "Tornado," and "Songs of the Flesh" (not to mention different versions of the already-released "Descending," "Cursed Diamond," and "Nonfiction") stand out amidst the band's lengthy repetoire. There are a few downers ("If It Ever Stops Raining" isn't nearly as enjoyable as the song it would eventually be re-written into, "By Your Side"), but mostly, these two discs feature a great blues/rock band doing what they do best: letting it all hang out. If they teach you something in the process, then all the better; but really, the Black Crowes are just here to entertain, and by God they do one hell of a job of it.

Wow, what a treat for Crowes fans! Captured at their creative peak, these two albums are true gems. Amorica happens to be one of my top ten favorite albums of all time and "Tall" offers a blueprint into that great release. While Amorica is more polished and textured, "Tall" is by no means a weaker treatment. These classic songs are more intimate on this release and offer the listener a great midnight second helping of that great album.

"Band" is just plain and simple a smokin' old, new release. Why this sat on the shelf for ten years is beyond me. While it is very hard to single out favorites, the first two selections, "Paint an 8" and "Another Roadside Tragedy" are particularly great. A one half star hit from me for the Rhino effort. Strange codes where a song list should be on the disc. A minor issue as this is great American rock n' roll from a group of really talented musicians in their prime. What else could a fan want? Highly recommended.

Its been a while since I've been compelled to review anything but these discs have blown me away from the moment I put them on. Always have been a big fan and have been gradually disappointed with everything from 3 Snakes on.

BOTH of these CDs rock. The Band disc is simply an amazing album that holds up to their greatest work. Another Roadside is one of the best rock songs I've heard in months. Why this didn't come out instead of the mediocre By The Way is totally beyond my comprehension.

I went in thinking "why do I need another Amorica" because I already love that album. But the different takes on the album are great... a bit softer and smoother. And the unreleased gems buried in the middle are simply great rock songs.

Lets hope the brothers Robinson can recreate some of this magic with their new album in the works!

Plain and Simple. If you're a Black Crowes fan get this recording.

If you're new to the Black Crowes start with the first three albums than try this one. You'll appreciate it a lot more.

I have to say I was blown away at the quality of the tunes that make up both of these albums. They both are chock full of Allman Bros-esque guitar work and jams. I am amazed at how open and rich the tunes are - in fact, in many ways I like the versions of the Amorica tunes better here for the outright honest renditions (less-produced), and I can't believe that the 2nd album, "Band" was never released as a real album.

If you would like to hear the Crowes in raw, unbridled format, definitely get these albums. They are a true surprise and I can't recommend enough.
