Looks like Crowes fans have something to look forward to again. I have to say there last couple pof releases (especially the last one plus the Cabin Fever DVD) have been fantastic. So I am really looking forward to this one!

"THE BLACK CROWES take flight like never before with their first-ever double album of all acoustic material, "Croweology". Due out Tuesday, August 3 via band's label Silver Arrow through Megaforce Records, it features new arrangements of their best-loved songs and the band's catalogue picks. The iconic and influential band will celebrate the album's release that evening with a performance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and perform the next night, Wednesday, August 4, on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Next, they'll kick off a four-month North American tour August 13. It will wrap December 19 with an epic six-night stand in San Francisco at The Fillmore December 12-19, after which Chris Robinson (vocals/guitar), Rich Robinson (guitar), Steve Gorman (drums), Sven Pipien (bass), Luther Dickinson (guitar) and Adam McDougall (keyboards) will go on a lengthy hiatus to catch their collective breaths and spend time with their families.

"Croweology" spans THE BLACK CROWES' revered catalog with acoustic renditions of 20 songs from their two decades of cosmic rock 'n' roll. Commemorating the 20th anniversary of their landmark multi-platinum debut, 1990's "Shake Your Moneymaker", "Croweology" gives listeners an intimate retrospective, stripping away these fan and band favorites like "Jealous Again", "Remedy", "She Talks To Angels" and "Wiser Time" to their very essence through brand new recordings, captured in 2009 at Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles. Given its scope and bright approach, the Paul Stacey-produced "Croweology" is worth studying for both longtime fans and newcomers alike.

In order to thank fans for 20 years of support, "Croweology" will be priced at the cost of a single album. In addition, it will be available on vinyl and as an iTunes LP. Listeners will get their first taste of "Croweology" when "Jealous Again" and "Morning Song" hit radio this week.

Following the album's release, THE BLACK CROWES will hit the road â€" with multiple nights in many key markets â€" on their "Say Goodnight To The Bad Guys" tour. In most cities, the band will perform for three hours: a 90-minute "Acoustic Hors D'oeuvres" set, followed by a 90-minute "Electric Reception with The Black Crowes".

While on tour, THE BLACK CROWES will be inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame on September 11 at the 32nd annual Georgia Music Hall of Fame awards show. The official induction will feature a live performance by THE BLACK CROWES. Presented by Friends of Georgia Music Festival, Inc., the evening will take place at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in North Atlanta. The event marks the third decade that the non-profit organization has recognized Georgia's accomplished artists and musicians for outstanding achievements.

Some people say they've seen angels,
I've seen United,
That's enough.

Saw the Crowes at Brixton following the release of Warpaint, Luther Dickinson is an asset to the band and I hope it is his guitar that we hear on this album. In the meantime.......
:) I love my wife! <3

Yeah, there has been a little TNMS contingent at the last two Brixton one-off gigs (April 2008, and May 2009) and both gigs were fantastic if I remember. Luther Dickenson is indeed rather nifty on guitar, and a great addition to the live band.

Now in, very nice set. Excellent packaging, looks neat.
It is basically a best of, but with some new arrangements and acoustic playing as well. This is the way to do it I suppose, especially for a band like the Crowes.
Recommended.

i chanced on a preview copy of this and was blown away, took me right back to the early 90s when the crowes were one of my favourite bands; i really enjoyed the acoustic messing so much so that ive parted with 8.95 and ordered it from play.

really great new slant on some old favourites.
I'll try and behave . Promise
