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

Amazon.com

Few young bands have embraced classic rock as fully as the Black Crowes. Their debut album features a bar-band stomp rooted in the back catalogs of the Rolling Stones, Free, the Faces, and any number of early '70s hard rockers. The secret of their success has been singer Chris Robinson's lanky rock-star poses matched with a voice as raw as whisky and as inviting as velvet. Add a healthy rhythm section accentuated by producer (and Rick Rubin protégé) George Drakoulias and you've got the dynamic shuffle of their hits ("Jealous Again" and the title track). While the band clearly likes to party, they're even more convincing with their Sunday-morning comedown, "She Talks to Angels." --Rob O'Connor

There is really not a bad track on the whole album.
Richard Thompson
More powerful guitar riffs, the standard for the disc, are perpetuated by more of Chris Robinson's fun, singable lyrics.
Brian
If you like music in the style of the rolling stones or steppenwolf, you'll like the black crowes.

By 1990, the hard rock sound, which peaked in the early 70s, had long since worn out its welcome. It had progressed to the point of becoming a ludicrous parody of itself. Groups like Motley Crue, Poison and Def Leppard were the logical progression of the 70s hard rock sound. They took the look, sound and theatrics of the 70s rockers to ridiculous proportions. This was thanks in part to KISS, who proved that image could be more important than music. By the late 70s, rock groups were taking things a step further and exaggerating the look and style of Mick Jagger, Robert Plant and Steven Tyler.
By the early/mid 80s, the hard rock look and sound pioneered by the aforementioned names had reached the point of absurdity. Hair metal was all the rage and MTV had ushered in a video era where the look was now just as important as the music, if not more so. With this new image, the quality of the music suffered immensely. This new generation of rockers was so enraptured with the rock and roll lifestyle that they completely forgot about musicianship and artistry. This music is now affectionately known as Cheese Metal or Hair Metal. Music that seems laughable nowadays, with snicker-inducing hair and fashion to match. Music that could, in no way, be taken seriously by any true lover of music.
The trend wore on and throughout the late 80s, many now-forgotten hair metal groups came and went. Then, in 1990, a group came out of Georgia with a completely different ideology. This group, The Black Crowes, was making music that was completely out of style in this world of hair spray and spandex. Their debut, Shake Your Money Maker, was full of tight, fiery spurts of boogie-rock, the likes of which had not been heard on a major record since the mid-70s.

The Black Crowes' debut effort 'Shake Your Moneymaker' is an excellent lesson to aspiring musicians on pure energy. Of course, 'Moneymaker' is the band's most well-known disc - containing not only 'Twice As Hard,' and 'She Talks To Angels,' but also easily the band's best received track: the killer version of Otis Redding's 'Hard To Handle.'
Although Nirvana is the band credited with killing off the hair metal and (original) bubblegum popsters with their album 'Nevermind,' 'Shake Your Moneymaker' easily played a part in the transformation. In 1990, a time when hair metal still held it's grasp over most of the populace, it was almost unheard of a straight rock or blues album to chart very high in the Billboard Top 200. But of course, the Crowes decided to prove that theory wrong. And they sure did. Borrowing heavily from the blues oriented rock of artists of yesteryear like Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones, The Crowes released an album that was sheer rock fury. Not the most intelligent album lyric-wise, but that was more than made up for by the sheer fury and raw energy of the album.
Not as polished as the band's later releases, like 'Lions' for example, 'Moneymaker' was appealing if only for the honesty and power it held over the listener. The combo of brothers Rich (guitars) and Chris (vocals)Robinson is easily one of the best brother teams in rock, and also one explosively talented duo. The album is filled with raucious guitar licks and some powerfully musical vocals. Many of the tracks even feature background piano work that adds very well to the atmosphere of the disc.
The first two tracks of the disc, 'Twice As Hard' and 'Jealous Again' are rock 'n' roll romps typical of most of the band's catalogue. Just fun, unabrashed fury, and easily singable lyrics.

This is an extremely solid debut. There isnt anything particularly revolutionary included here, certainly no groundbreaking progression down uncharted musical avenues. What you buy here is ten perfectly crafted hard rock gems with a pop spin, not a single one of which would sound out of place on nearly any classic 70's rock n roll album you could care to mention.
The Crows play gritty, stomping rock n roll with a swagger and natural approach that other bands would die for, and spend much time trying to emulate with little success. The Stones, Led Zeppelin, Faces, Chuck Berry, early Aersomith....the Crowes wear their influences on their sleeve with pride, and are a better and more acceptable band for it.
'Twice as hard' and 'Jealous again' are two back to back classic openers, suffused with rolicking piano and the southern drawl of Chris Robinson's vocals crooning out the catchy, singalong choruses with gusto.
'Sister Luck and 'Could I've been so blind' take a lighter approach, swaying almost in the breeze and segueing neatly into the emotive 'Seeing things', a song about 'how wonderful it is to fall in love......or maybve it aint about that at all'. An emotional, epic sounding number it remains. The hit single, 'Hard to handle', am Otis Redding cover is marvelously catchy, particularly well executed an played. 'She talks to angels' is a masterful ballad, which Rich purportedly wrote when he was just 16, with a maturity and sense of melody belying his age.
Two rabid rock numbers, 'Struttin blues' and 'Stare it cold' drag the album to a wonderful and fitting conlcusion.
Superb record. The Crowes may have gone on to record more mature, complex and essentially better albums than this, yet the masterful simplicity and inherent likeability of this material makes it a must buy.
