Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Available separately or as a package with the associated DVD (the video has 6 additional tracks), this is about as stripped down as performances get. Before regrouping as the Black Crowes in 2007, founding members/brothers Chris and Rich Robinson toured as a duo, with occasional support from two female backing singers, playing small venues. The highlights of a three-night stand at LA's Roxy are compiled here and they are a revelation. Crowes' fans will obviously be thrilled, but this is just as impressive for those who never warmed up to the band's gritty, sometimes shambling Southern blues rock. The set list concentrates on obscurities from the Crowes' catalog and a few stragglers from each brother's solo work. Covers of offbeat folkish material such as "Driving Wheel" (best known through Tom Rush's version), John Martyn's "Over the Hill" and Gene Clark's "Polly," along with Lowell George's "Roll Um Easy," show the Robinson siblings' confidence and willingness to dig far under the surface for gems that wouldn't typically be included in their group's more electrified shows. Chris sings with gritty soul, putting his natural rasp to terrific use as he tears into the material with a passion even Crowes fans likely haven't previously experienced. A closing "Thorn in My Pride" runs in excess of 12 minutes and, like the rest of the show, reverberates with a fervor and intensity that has heretofore remained hidden in the Black Crowes' existing recordings. --Hal Horowitz

Product Description

Get up close and personal with The Black Crowes' Chris and Rich Robinson and their stunningly intimate Brothers of a Feather performance, culled from a 3-night sold out stand at The Roxy in LA. Featuring a first time ever acoustic mix of Black Crowes favorites, rarities, solo material, new songs and covers, the CD captures the intimacy of the performances from the Robinsons never captured on tape before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heads-up! Buy the DVD/CD Combo Instead! September 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Great concert by the Robinson Brothers, but I wanted to let Amazon customers know that there is a DVD/CD combo over in the DVD section (same title: "Brothers of a Feather") that is selling for cheap. Same CD as this listing, but you get the DVD too and with more tracks. Great deal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great listening indeed!!!!!!!! July 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I usually don`t take the time to review something for a site like this, as many others usually do a good job........but I have to write about this masterpiece........

Nowhere else today can you find music being made with this much devotion & realness, I could go on with track by track analysis, but there is no need here.......if your`re borderline on buying this cd....do not hesitate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful music! August 7, 2007
By Denis
Format:Audio CD
I just got this CD from a friend of mine, and having not been familiar with the Robinson brothers or Black Crowes, I didn't really know what to expect. From the first song forward, I was mesmerized - this music is incredibly real, incredibly candid, and incredibly soulful. I'm not sure whether to call it rock, blues, folk, or a mix thereof, but it's as intimate as music gets - just two guys with guitars and some backup singers, no effects, no gimmicks, no pretenses. Chris and Rich Robinson made excellent music here. In certain points of certain songs, they so reminded me of classic Led Zeppelin sound - the singing of Robert Plant and the guitar of Jimmy Page - and yet, they have a style here that's distinctly their own. This is a truly superb work, and I recommend any blues, rock, and folk fans to check this album out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Documenting the True Tour Of Brotherly Love August 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
While they have a history of discord, lately the Robinson brothers seem to have found harmony which is evident on this album recorded during one of their duo-tours. Out of the band context the choice Black Crowes tracks here highlight the strenght of that material, while the stripped down instrumental backing enables Chris to focus on singing to his best ability rather than struggling to be heard over a fullblast rock'n'roll band. Chris joins his brother Rich on guitar for some songs, but mainly it's the younger Robinson who provides six string magic here. Listening the acoustic dexterity of the extended Thorn In My Pride it's impossible to deny his virtuosity.
While there is nothing lack-daisical here, BOAF is a sideproject, as the new made-for-the Black Crowes-songs featured here (Cold Boy Smile, Magic Rooster Blues) attest. Still the great performances, new look on some gems from their solo projects, and the typically broad spectrum of cover material make this an essential purchase to even a casual Black Crowes-fan, and should please fans of Americana to no end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite unplugged. March 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With the brothers cooperating enough to make music, things always cook. I was expecting something more stripped down, there are backing singers and some very electric sounds, but that doesn't detract from the fact that this is a fresh look at Crows music. If your a fan this will be enjoyable, if you're not, its still a well done disc of live music by the brothers Robinson.Id still like to hear Chris and Rich with folk guitars on a quiet sound stage alone, but this will suffice for now.

If your a fan of the Black Crowes or just good old rock and blues music this album is for you. It's nice to hear the brothers back together again and they sound great. There is only one Black Crowes song on the album, "Thorn In My Pride" but the rest is in the same vain and right where the band left off, with one exception: there is no band. It's just the two brothers and some back ground singers. There is only guitar and vocals, no bass or drums. It must have been a very intimate performance because that's how the album comes off. It's relaxed and mellow. It's still has all the edge of the Black Crowes though, which I know sound contradictory but pick up the album and you'll see what I'm talking about. The new songs sound great, the solo project songs from both Rich and Chris sound better than they did on their solo records. To boot there are some really cool covers also, like songs by Tom Rush and Gene Clark. A great eclectic album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Robinsons still capable of surprises! May 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Birds of a feather gets better with every listening. Chris Robinson's vocals can often verge on being irritating but when he gets it right they soar with a gritty, soulful resonance - reminding me of early Steve Marriott. Rich Robinson's guitar playing is both effective and accomplished, without ever being overly flamboyant. The songs are the strongest aspect of the album. Both the originals and covers work really well together - with the exception of John Martyn's "Over the hill', which is a pale shadow of the original. Overall, an excellent live CD!

I'm a Crowes fan, but don't like this one. I guess I miss the searing guitars and riffs. Looking forward to "Warpaint" in March.
