Unreleased Black Crowes album at Aquarium Drunkard

Aquarium Drunkard, as usual, rocks my face off. He’s got a “lost” Black Crowes album, The Band, from 1997 up on his site. Some good, good stuff. He says:

“The Black Crowes’ lost album The Band (aka Meet The Band) recorded in Atlanta in 1997, was to be the follow-up to Three Snakes & One Charm. Mixed and sequenced, it was shelved and Crowes released By Your Side in it’s stead. One listen and it is evident The Band is twice the Crowes experience By Your Side is. Crowes fans take note: I consider this album practically in the same realm of quality as Southern Harmony and Amorica.”

These have been floating around since 2002, but if you don’t have these tracks head on over there to download:
“Never Forget This Song”
“Smile”
“Paint An 8″
“Another Roadside Tragedy”
“If It Ever Stops Raining”
“My Heart’s Killing Me”
“Predictable”
“OK By Me”
“Wyoming & Me”
“Lifevest”
“Only A Fool” (I love this song!)

Oh, also, he has a jubilant Replacements post in which he uses the phrase “burst into rock & roll flames,” which I think is a pretty apt description.

Have fun!

"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."

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.
