I am a huge Black Crowes fan, one of the only ones I know. They are one of my absolute favorite bands, I've seen them three times and own everything they've put out, plus a bunch of live shows. These guys are a great band, with some awesome studio albums and they kick ass live. I very rarely hear about them on this website (except for when I mention them), and I'm curious as to who else likes them. So...share your thoughts here

Amazing band, i think you, me, and Derigiberble are the only ones on here that can discuss them outside of Hard to Handle and Remedy.

anyways, whats everyone's favorite album, i've been taking a liking to Southern Harmony and Musical Companion.

Three Snakes and One Charm. Seem to be everyone's least favourite and yet I share the opinion of Chris Robinson that it's the best thing they've ever done. The horns on that album are awesome.

^^I tend to think that more people dislike Lions. Three Snakes is a great album...I love One Mirror Too Many and Evil Eye.

Yes they rock very hard,
I like how each album is so different from the others yet still the same.
Favorite album has to be...
each of the first two,
because the first one really shows some killer licks and good songwriting and the second one is like a free for all rock-jam.

BTW anybody know any good bands like them?

And the Zep thread of course

anyway I saw them back in 2001 I think at the millenium stadium. Seeing them live and in an arena with like 80,000 other fans was amazing

If you like the Crowes, check out the obvious country artists like The Byrds, Gram Parsons and The Band, but also have a look into a band called American Minor. I love them plus I'm in their top friends on myspace cos i'm "supa cool".

http://www.myspace.com/americanminor

Guess who I am.

EDIT: Aww yeah I forgot the Stereophonics were such good friends with the Crowes. There's a video somewhere on the net of them performing together with Jools Holland.

^I've been to see the Phonics, and would have much rather seen the Black Crowes supporting than who we got (the Dead 60's, who were okay).

They've got loadsa pretty decent songs, just good swaying bluesy rock riffs. Hard to Handle I think is my favourite one at the moment.
#14
What are all of your favorite songs from them?

right now mine would probably have to be Thorn In My Pride.

replaced by

Paul Stacey- guitar

Paul and Rob are pretty good, but neither of them come close to Marc and Eddie.

So i just stumbled upon some awesome stuff.

Sweet Pickle Salad with Chris on vocals and Marc Ford of guitar, it has some members of Jellyfish in it, and theres even flute in it, its really good sounding.

i also just found Ford's band Burning Tree's self titled album (there only one)

The albums really good, its different that i expected though (well you should know, you've probably already listened through the whole thing twice now).

the Sweet Pickle Salad is really good, i think i like it slightly more than Burning Tree, even though theres only 4 tracks, i wish they had recorded more.

^^I really like this Burning Tree album. I can't wait to hear some Big Toe, Foamfoot, and Hookah Brown.

for those who didn't know, all four of those bands featured atleast one member of the Black Crowes

Chris Robinson and the New Earth Mud are pretty good too, but I don't think I'd buy their album.

speaking of B-sides...anyone know where I can find a recorded version of Waiting Guilty (according to Crowesbase- "B-side of Shake Your Money Maker")? I've seen the song played twice live, and I love it. I'd like to hear a recorded version of the song.

Got around to listening to most of Southern Harmony today in the car...that album really is great. Thorn In My Pride and No Speak No Slave are my two favorites from it.

Southern Harmony was the first album I ever heard. My dad gave it to me when I wanted to expand my tastes in music. Thanks to that, I'm now obsessed (as is BrainDamage and a couple of other people I know ).

The first i heard was Hard To Handle (obviously being a radio single, and the fact my dad played that alnum nonstop for like 10 years) but my favorite is deffinetely Southern Harmony.

with the exception of being obsessed with Hard to Handle as a little kid, the first time I really listened to them was June 22, 2005. Saw them open for Tom Petty.

http://www.crowesbase.com/tapelisting.cfm?TapeID=1683

Pretty good set, now that I look back on it. Sure wish I was more of a fan at that time, cause now I realize that Another Roadside Tragedy would kick ass live, and even better, as an opener. I do, however, vivdly remember the transition from Ballad into Wiser Time. That was cool

EDIT: I also remember My Morning Song, as well as Chris' time travel comment

Yeah some of the Lost and Tall sessions are pretty underated. I can't believe Another Road Side Tragedy never made the album.

^^yeah, I'm surprised that the only official release of the song was just recently on Lost Crowes. Lost Crowes is very good, but the studio-quality-ready-to-be-released version of the Band album that I have is so much better

Oh yeah, one more thing...Never Forget This Song rocks

The Crowes are sooo under-rated. They seriously rock hard, old school Rn'R! They are deffinitly one of my fav bands ever. All of their albums are amazing. I've been trying to get marc/rich's sound forever, but I can't seem to dail it in. I was thinking about getting a Fulldrive pedal?
anyway, unfortunately I haven't had the privelage of seeing them live. I'd love to, tho. I hear talks of a new album sometime soon!
so glad I found this thread...
#37
So I thought I'd bring back this thread, considering I was able to get the pictures I took with my phone onto my computer from the 2006-11-08 Crowes show where I was basically leaning up on the railing.


Rich during "Answers" I believe.


Chris.


Chris playing harmonica.


Rich with Chris playing rhythm behind him.


setting up for Sunday Night Buttermilk Waltz at the beginning of the second set.
