Another great MP3 deal is on Amazon this month! Croweology, the anthology of classic cuts and cool and hot rockers by The Black Crowes, is available for only $5.00.
The Black Crowes came out of Athens, Georgia in 1989 and found success with their cover of Otis Reddingâ€™s â€œHard to Handle.â€ Fusing together classic rock sounds similar to what English bands like Humble Pie, Free, and The Small Faces were doing, with country-esque blues played ala Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes released albums during the 1990s and beyond that were adventurous musical road maps of early sounds and new ones, creating a retro yet contemporary niche and welcome path for a fan not weaned on mid 1990s genres of music (Seattle Grunge, post punk, post heavy metal, gothic metal).
Croweology finds the band in fine fettle, on tracks like â€œJealous Again,â€ â€œSister Luck,â€ the radio classic â€œShe Talks to Angels,â€ and power ballads like â€œBad Luck, Blue Eyesâ€ and â€œBallad in Urgency.â€ 20 tracks round out the album, spanning some of the best of their work from the 1990s. Good stuff by a band that took a lot from the past to shape their own musical present.
