QuoteI was disappointed with Lions actually, probably my least favourite Crowes album.

Have you heard Chris Robinson's New Earth Mud album? Pretty decent in a mellow non-Crowes way. He's just got rid of the band that played on that & drafted Audley Freed back in. Yet to hear anything with this line up though.


didn't know about this one... is it his first solo thing? Will investigate - he's got a great rock-crooners voice  8)

Yes, it's the first solo one Neil. Look for the version with the bonus DVD.

I borrowed that from the library last week. I'm not at all impressed.
I keep going back to Shake Your Moneymaker. There's a great song called Don't Wake Me on the reissue. Great Aerosmith tribute, better than anything the real thing have done for years.
The lenses inside of me that paint the world black. The pools of poison, the scarlet mist, that spill over into rage.

Saw them supporting Aerosmith at Wembley Stadium a few years back, they are great live.

S'funny Neill, I was there for that two, Lenny Kravitz was pretty good that day too. Wembley Stadium ran out of food and drink, so myself and the friend I was there with managed to blag our way onto the VIP floor and raided food and booze from there instead, until some b*st*rd of a security guy caught us.... We made our escape with sh*tloads of free food and booze though!!   8) 8)

I went through a Lynyrd Skynyrd phase - and love Freebird - purely for the value for money it provided on the jukebox when a poor student  ;D

Also used to love the Black Crowes - and 'The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion' was the last one of theirs I bought...

I know - I'm a fickle fan!

YESS! Another Mayfair acolyte! Highway Songs is a great live album as well. Molly H were briefly up there as well, as were 38 Special. The Skynyrd were the greatest and the best of them all. Pity that they still trial the corpse around. Yes they were red necks, yes they were pretty awful (I mean just go and read up on Van Zandt, you'll find him in the dictionary under "Bastard") but they produced some timeless music. "Freebird" is their greatest gift to sore necks and air guitaring!

Not really a fan of this sort of stuff. A bit too "Deliverance" for me. You expect the band members to start saying things like "You got a purty mouth,boy"!

The best stuff IMO isn't really Southern Rock, but tends to veer more towards blues, eg ZZ Top which I do really like.(Not the later stuff though :P)
Ach, if Dougie were here, he'd tell you himself....

Not heard that one Mick, when I read about the subject matter (the story of Skynyrd apparently) I thought it sounded a bit of a cringe so I never investigated further. I did have a listen to a couple of tracks from the most recent album online & thought it sounded a bit too country for me. They've played London a couple of times over the last year or two but I didn't bother. Hope your not going to tell me I should have gone! ::)

Top album - much better than Pizza Deliverance. I'll have to revisit it now you've reminded me!  :)
