Editors’ Notes

Whether with The Black Crowes or with his Brotherhood, Chris Robinson has remained devoted to classic rock values. Where once The Rolling Stones and The Faces were his obvious influences, with a touch of The Allman Brothers Band, Robinson has now settled on exploring the outer reaches of The Grateful Dead (again with a touch of The Allman Brothers Band). The Magic Door is the follow-up to Big Moon Ritual, released just three months earlier. It's another mind-melting outing with silvery guitars, way-out keyboards, and a massive improvisation in "Vibration & Light Suite" to keep the jam-band circuit engaged. A garage-rock take on Hank Ballard's "Let's Go Let's Go Let's Go" could have been culled from the first Dead album. The Black Crowes' ballad "Appaloosa" breaks out the acoustic guitars for a vintage folk break. "Little Lizzie Mae" cranks out a blues Bob Dylan would be proud of. The Neal Casal/Adam MacDougall/Chris Robinson–penned "Sorrows of a Blue Eyed Liar" is an audiophile's dream in guitar-tone heaven.

Customer Reviews

One Star?! What are you listening to?

If someone is not willing to pay $9.99 for an album, why bother leaving a 'bad' review? Instead head on over to the bargain bin and pick up some dusy old gems for $2.99.

CRB are doing all of this right. From killer players to great songs. From being road warriors to continuing rock/folk tradiontions that are losing their place in music.

I can't think of a group/album I would rather support more right now. Not only am I supporting artists doing it right, I am getting some sublime listening material. Rock, blues, jams, and trips that get me through.

Get it! Get it?

Freak N' Roll at it's finest

If you get a chance, see them live, CRB have been touring like crazy in support of both albums. You won't be disappointed. I had the pleasure of hearing "Tornado" played live by CRB for the 1st time in Chicago, and it blew my mind. That song is one of my all time favorites, incredible lyrics.

Of course they get ya w/ the $9.99, and you can't go without Vibration & Light Suite, which is a live staple and all around great tune. So let's just hope the majority goes to CRB so they can keep it freaky out there.

An American rock and roll gem.

Real music but not the Crowes

This is a great record, a perfect companion to Big Moon Ritual. What this isn't is a Black Crowes record. Chris's solo stuff is totally different but great none the less. If you want rehashed Crowes riffs buy Rich's record. Do yourself a favor and pick this up along with Big Moon Ritual. You won't be disappointed.
