The Black Crowes want to put something in your stocking for ya

Oh, I am SO out of season. What the heck, Heather? Well, compare this post to your half-off after-Christmas sale. You can get really good things after the holidays are over.

I was a little slow on the uptake finding this new Black Crowes cover of an old R&B/Blues song, and didn’t find it until after Christmas (like January), and then I forgot to post it. But take a listen, it is so good, so swaggering, so Southern-moonlight that I had to post it.

Back Door Santa – Black Crowes

Chris and Rich Robinson are heading out on an acoustic tour in April, just the two of them. That will be insane – just look at the intimate and rad venues in San Francisco alone! Tix onsale next week:

There is a live DVD coming out from the Crowes in March, titled Freak ‘N’ Roll into the Fog, recorded at the Fillmore in San Francisco in 2005. There’s also a new album alleged in 2006 from these guys, but nothing concrete. Let’s hope.

  • ok, ok, I admit, I was familiar with everyone’s site on the list except yours. My jealous rage led me to not investigate further.

    I’m willing to concede that this is a pretty sweet blog (was especially happy to see the new Streets which I’ll link up tomorrow) . . . but does it make you deserving of extra Jesus-love? Hard to say.

  • You ever get the feeling all the bands you really want to hear always skip Denver?

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
