iTunes Editors’ Notes

Released in 1990, Shake Your Money Maker immediately established The Black Crowes as a formidable rock 'n' roll band in the tradition of The Rolling Stones and The Faces. Rolling Stone magazine and its readers named the Crowes the Best New American Band in 1990, and this album scored a string of excellent singles, including "Jealous Again," "Hard to Handle" (an Otis Redding cover), and "She Talks to Angels," which touched on drug addiction. In those pre-grunge days, The Black Crowes were one of the few rock 'n' roll bands landing hits with smart songwriting and an organic sound of tough guitars and a Hammond B-3 organ (played by none other than The Rolling Stones' keyboard man and former Allman Brothers member Chuck Leavell). The album has a deep bench. "Twice As Hard," "Sister Luck," and "Seeing Things" capture a Southern rock that's strong in all areas of writing and performance, while a flat-out rocker like "Thick N' Thin" is the kind of upbeat shuffle that the Stones threw onto Exile on Main Street.

Customer Reviews

Really Awesome album

this album has the perfect mix of rock and blues. it is awesome.

Rock 'n Roll Redemption

In a world dominated musically by the only type of music that has no musical characteristics (Hip Hop/Rap), it is a rare and heart-stopping thing to find a band that plays good ol' classic rock and roll. Thanks to the Black Crowes, I know there is hope for the world. Even though they came at a point in time where rock & roll wasn't cool, they had the songwriting abilities and hooks to re-popularize it. I hope that a band comes that proves the whole generation wrong and shows everyone what real music is. I got a Rolling Stone magazine in the mail today. Jay-Z was bigger than ever on the cover. What, Dr. Hook couldn't get on the cover of the Rolling Stone but Jay-Z can?

One of the All Time Classics!

Not one bad track on here. I would rank this with The Stones "Exile on Main Street" and "Let it Bleed" as one of the most solid albums of all time. It's timeless.

At the time of their 1990 debut, the kind of rock & roll the Black Crowes specialized in was sorely out of style. Only Guns N' Roses came close to approximating a vintage Stones-style raunch, but they were too angry and jagged to pull it off completely. The Black Crowes, on the other hand, replicated that Stonesy swagger and Faces boogie perfectly. Vocalist Chris Robinson appropriated the sound and style of vintage Rod Stewart, while brother Rich Robinson fused Keith Richards' lean guitar attack...
