The Black Crowes

At the time of their 1990 debut, the kind of rock & roll the Black Crowes specialized in was sorely out of style. Only Guns N' Roses came close to approximating a vintage Stones-style raunch, but they were too angry and jagged to pull it off completely. The Black Crowes, on the other hand, replicated that Stonesy swagger and Faces boogie perfectly. Vocalist Chris Robinson appropriated the sound and style of vintage Rod Stewart, while brother Rich Robinson fused Keith Richards' lean guitar attack with Ron Wood's messy rhythmic sense. At their best, the Black Crowes echoed classic rock without slavishly imitating their influences, and the band's nostalgic sound helped foster a long, popular career.

The Robinson brothers originally formed the Black Crowes in Georgia in 1984. By the time the group released its first album with 1990's Shake Your Money Maker, the lineup comprised vocalist Chris Robinson, guitarist Rich Robinson, bassist Johnny Colt, guitarist Jeff Cease, and drummer Steve Gorman. "Jealous Again," the first single from Shake Your Money Maker, was a moderate hit, but it was the band's cover of Otis Redding's "Hard to Handle" that made the Black Crowes a multi-platinum success. "Hard to Handle" climbed its way into the Top 40, propelling the album into the Top Ten along the way. The acoustic ballad "She Talks to Angels" became the band's second Top 40 hit in the spring of 1991, and Shake Your Money Maker eventually sold over three million copies.

The Black Crowes delivered their second album, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, in the spring of 1992. It entered the charts at number one but lacked strong hits, as none of the singles cracked the Top 40 and only "Remedy" and "Thorn in My Pride" made the Top 100. Nevertheless, the band established itself as a popular concert attraction that summer, selling out theaters across America. During 1992, the band added keyboardist Eddie Harsch as a permanent member. The Black Crowes' third album, Amorica, arrived in late 1994 and debuted in the Top Ten. Even so, none of the singles from the album made a significant dent, and the album slipped from the charts after going gold.

Three Snakes and One Charm, the group's fourth album, was released in July 1996. The album quickly slipped out of the Top 50 after making a strong entrance, yet it also received the best reviews of any Crowes album since The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion. Guitarist Marc Ford was fired from the Black Crowes in August 1997, and bassist Johnny Colt left the lineup in order to form the Brand New Immortals. With Rich Robinson handling all guitar parts, the band recorded and released By Your Side before collaborating with one of the world's most celebrated guitarists, Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page. This partnership was captured by the concert album Live at the Greek, an eclectic mix of newly recorded Zeppelin covers and additional classic blues cuts. Greatest Hits 1990-1999: A Tribute to a Work in Progress, a 16-track best-of compilation, was released several months later in 2000.

Don Was was enlisted to produce the band's new album, 2001's Lions, whose lyrics were influenced by Chris Robinson's highly publicized relationship with actress Kate Hudson. A month-long summer tour with Oasis -- dubbed "the Tour of Brotherly Love" due to the prevalence of siblings in both bands -- followed in June. All was apparently not well with the group, however, and the band announced its decision to go on hiatus in January 2002. Drummer Steve Gorman was fired, and Chris Robinson began planning a solo career. It was Rich Robinson who was first out of the gate with a solo project, though, releasing Paper in 2004. In 2005, however, the Black Crowes reunited for a show at San Francisco's Fillmore, a concert that was released in both CD and DVD formats as Freak 'N' Roll...Into the Fog in 2006. That year also saw the release of The Lost Crowes, which contained two previously unreleased albums, 1993's Tall (parts of which were seen in Amorica and other places) and the 1997 never-before-heard Band. Following a series of lineup changes, the retooled band hit the road for a proper tour before setting to work on their first studio effort in seven years. Joined by newcomer Luther Dickinson, guitarist and co-founder of the North Mississippi Allstars, the Black Crowes combined the rootsy appeal of their early work with a newfound political awareness on 2008's Warpaint. A live performance of the album, available as both a DVD and a two-disc CD set titled Warpaint Live, appeared a year later in 2009. Before the Frost/Until the Freeze arrived that same year, marking the band's eighth studio effort and gathering warm reviews.

The Black Crowes continued their prolific streak with 2010's Croweology, a double-disc album that featured new acoustic recordings of the band's past work. The album's release was bittersweet, though, as it coincided with a farewell tour followed by another indefinite hiatus. Rich Robinson released his second solo album, Through a Crooked Sun, in 2011 and his brother Chris released two albums with his new band, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, in 2012. The Crowes lurched back to life in 2013, announcing a spring tour and releasing the live album Wiser for the Time on vinyl and MP3. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Awesome Band !
Saw them at Lollapalooza in Atlanta in the 90s. They were a great live band, at least for that show.
Amen, John Exnicious
When Jimmy Page wants to share your stage and play guitar with you because he loves your style, then you are on a another level than everybody else.

Still one of the best live bands going especially in small venues, seen them o'plenty, but first time was as the opening band for ZZ Top early 1990 maybe at lakefront arena.
Will see them at the Roots and Blues Fesitval in Columbia, then in Oklahoma and Austin the next weekend!
yankeefan826

I too have the Warpaint Crowe tattooed on my arm. They need to keep it together and keep puttin' out the jams.
earlycall
I think I am in love with dave mattews,he is a fantastic singer and guitarist
I will see them with Tedeschi/Tru c k s in Nashville and Alpharetta 07/19 and 07/20. Two best live bands playing.
Just saw them at House of Blues, and saw Chris Robinson Brotherhood last summer---tha t show changed my life. Last night the Crowes were absolutely undeniably in the top ten bands worth seeing live---and Tedeschi/Tru c k s is another one of those top ten! I need more,more,MO R E ! ! ! I lose two pounds every time I go to their shows from dancing!
Very nice song!! I've heard them so many times in concert!! ❌❤❌❤ learning to live together!!
Seen them 4 times now, recently at the House of Blues, Orlando a couple of weeks ago. Love this band. They are also doing some shows with the Tedeschi Trucks Band this summer. Would love to hit one of those shows.

the most underrated group ever!!!!!
saw them last Sunday in Houston....f i r s t time. Kicked major a**! Chris sounded great and the band was excellent. Better than I expected. Need to dig deeper into their catalog....s o far so good. Love the Crowes!
Saw them for the first time this week...they freakin ROCKED!!! I knew it was going to be a great show, but way exceded my expectations ! ! !
This is what it means to have soul! Music that had balls & played from their f**king heart!!!!!!! ! ! Nothing like some of today's banal, mediocre, soul-less, ball-less, corporate b**ches sucking on Satan's c**k each & everyone of them.

First time I heard the Crowes on the radio, I thought the late great Stevie Marriot had risen from the grave - but the Crowes really get it done. Super live band. Going April 19 in Old St Lou to see them again. Raises my faith that there still is good music going on.

Don't read this because it actually works you will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life tomorrow will be the best day of your life however if you don't post this you will die in 2 days now you've started reading so don't stop this is so scary put this on at least five songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
scwillmon
Shake Your Money Maker...firs t and best
By Your Side was my favorite Crowes album. The last two were a tad sappy and depressing for me. By Your Side had some of that swagger and upbeat-ness they've been lacking lately. Note that most of their hits are upbeat, fast-paced songs with a good strong rhythm. Jet sounds a bit like some of the better Crowes stuff to me, though that band can get sappy as well.
Nice comparison of the two bands. Stones=great e s t rock and roll bank of all time. Crowes=great e s t AMERICAN rock band. Body of work, songwriting and range is unmatched. Wiser Time, mmmmmmm, doesn't get much better than that!!

Seeing Things for the First Time-----out s t a n d i n g tune!
moe.lospinos o
this critique is backwards - Keith Richards' lean guitar attack with Ron Wood's messy rhythmic sense it is actually Keith's messy rhythmic sense and Ron's lean lead...
Love the first 2 albums
My all time favorite Crowes tune!!!
them crows are so good saw them in cali when i was like 7months pregnant wudnt miss it
the music kicks & the singer's voice is NICE.
Love the Black Crowes!! All their songs are sweet!! Takes me back to good times!! I've met them & they are huge!! They are sooo tall!! Lol...❌⭕❌⭕
hell I sang Hand to Handle at a HS talent contest, just turned on the CD and sang and danced with it.. I was hung the f**k over, could barely remember the words and was out of it
kind of an insult to label a Rolling Stones revival group, and though I like the Stones- the Crowes in terms of Rock and quality of sound were better
