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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angels and devils smile down deep inside July 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
When The Crowes hired guitarist Marc Ford just before this albulm was recorded, they gave him something like 30 songs to learn, but when he showed up for the first day of sessions, lo and behold, he found that Chris and Rich had scrapped all those songs an had rewritten the whole album in two weekends. They proceeded to record the entire deal in eight days, and after some aggrivating attempts at mixing, Chris took the album home and "hot mixed" it in one night.

Four days writing, eight days recording, and one all night mix. THIS is what rock is all about. The finished product is a masterpiece, and all in a fortnight.

Rather than rehashing which songs are which, it is better to point out the fact that this is a heavily themed album. There are stings, thorns, illness and bad luck, but there are also remedies, harmony and salvation. This album cuts to the core of life, where everything can seem to be right, yet still falls apart, and where perspective is maintained and salvation is found. As they quote Bob M, "Think you're in Heaven, but you're livin' in Hell"

When baby bands come out with their sophmore effort, it often falls flat (to put it mildly), but the Crowes were in their finest form on this one, proving that the "Stones Clones" can in fact forge their own way. Although I am a massive fan of the '67-72 Stones, I challange anyone to find Mick singing the blues better than Chris on "Bad Luck, Blue Eyes Goodbye", or injecting more venom than is on "No Speak No Slave". Well, Mick's venom is pretty thick on "Turd On The Run" I'll admit. But I digress...

This gospel tinged diamond of rock and roll has lived up to its name better than any other album in my life. In the last twelve years it has certainly been by best 'companion'.
Do yourself a favor and get yourself a new best friend with "Harmony". If you have a soul, "My Morning Song" will change your life.

If I could give it six stars, I wouldn't hesitate.

5.0 out of 5 stars First CD I ever owned February 4, 2001
By Miss P
Format:Audio CD
A friend bought this disc for me when I got my first cd player. Although I had only heard a handful of Black Crowes tunes before, I played the cd constantly since, well, it was my only one. Almost 10 years later, "Southern Harmony.." remains one of my favorite albums of all time.
This cd is what rock and roll is all about. It's gritty, it's bluesy and it grabs your attention and holds it until the very last song. My all-time favorite "Thorn in My Pride" starts out slow and ends up like a gospel choir coming at you full speed ahead. "Bad Luck Blue Eyes.." is the quintessential blues ballad, served up with a pack of smokes and some sloe gin. "My Morning Song" touches on every emotion you have and when you think that you just can't take any more, Chris Robinson leads you right into the soulful cover of Bob Marley's "Time Will Tell." In between, every single song does it's individual part to come together and make one of the most finely-tuned albums of the decade.
"Southern Harmony..." captures the true spirit of the Black Crowes and the true heart of rock music. This is a must-have album for anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul stirring December 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes i need a fix that only this album can provide. It also begs to be played loud. This album starts off like a great batting lineup with the incredible "Sting Me". Just when you didn't think there could be a better song we are reminded why "Remedy" was the single. Nice Rhodes piano and scatting by Chris. "Thorn In My Pride" is one of the great slower songs as well as the great riff in "Sometimes Salvation". Chris goes gospel as if pleading his case to St. Peter himself. Another favorite is "My Morning Song". This album is only enhanced by the Gospel singers and loosed-bearings endings. It's as inspired as the classic "Every Picture Tells a Story", and is the Crowes best.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest rock n' roll albums ever made! April 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Much is made of the so-called "sophomore slump," even in music. So many bands that burst on the scene with attention-grabbing debut albums seemingly fall on their faces the second time 'round.

The Black Crowes, however, gave us one of the best rock n' roll albums of all time with in their second offering, The Southern Harmon & Musical Companion. I will say it again: it is one of the best rock n' roll albums of all time.

When an album is this good, it isn't really necessary to do a song-by-song breakdown. Just take these words to heart: this is a must-have album for rock n' roll fans. Period.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible band's best effort - Pure RAWK June 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Yes, that's RAWK, not just rock, but RAWK. From beginning to end, this album blew me away the first time I heard it, and about 1,000 listens later, now that I've heard and realized many of the album's intricacies that were inapparent on first listen, it blows me away even more now. Listen to the intro and through the first verse of Sting Me, the first song, and you'll swear you're listening to the Rolling Stones, with a different, more soulful singer (Chris Robinson). However, these guys can rock in more way than one, which they immediately prove in the next song, Remedy, which has to be my personal favorite Crowes song, with it's incredibly catchy, hard-driven guitar from Rich Robinson, and a great performance from the always superb Chris. The album then mellows down only slightly for the next four songs, but the volume drop only serves to enhance Chris's down-home Southern soul-filled singing, and some incredible lead guitar from Marc Ford, who isn't with the Crowes anymore, but proves here to be an awesome, underrated soloist with a very unique style. Then comes the 7-8-9 combo of Black Moon Creeping, No Speak No Slave, and My Morning Song, which, in my opinion is one of the best 1-2-3 punches for pure rock value in history; think Whole Lotta Love-What Is & What Should Never Be-Heartbreaker from Led Zeppelin II in terms of how hard these three songs rock. As one critic said, Black Moon Creeping features the dirtiest, nastiest guitar tone ever put on vinyl, with a bass-heavy, heavily distorted wah giving the song great grit. However, this tone compares nothing to the wah tone on the following song, No Speak No Slave, during the solo. Read more ›
