iTunes Editors’ Notes

Anyone familiar with the sprawling wingspan of The Black Crowes’ career can trace their Hotlanta beginnings as keepers of the boogie-rock torch that was ignited by bands like The Faces and The Rolling Stones. But sometime after 1994’s Amorica, the Crowes' Southern-fried stomp and blues-blasting riffs softened into meandering rhythms and noodling leads that had more in common with The Grateful Dead. The 2013 set Wiser for the Time reveals The Black Crowes’ full transformation into a festival-friendly jam band. An acoustic-based version of “Cursed Diamond” opens, sounding like a Chris Robinson solo tune before drums, bass, organ, and brother Rich Robinson’s electric guitar leads flesh out the following “Sister Luck.” Even rockers like “No Speak No Slave” are mellowed a bit here. Other gems include dazzling covers of Gram Parsons’ weepy “Hot Burrito #1” and the more upbeat “Hot Burrito #2.” Where The Black Crowes’ early-'90s Southern-steeped rock trimmed the band like a fringed suede vest, the earthier jams here fit more naturally, like a well-worn pair of blue jeans.

Customer Reviews

Cash Grab

Let me start by stating, I have been a die hard Crowes fan for many years, since I first saw them live in 1995 and even now after attending more than 20 shows since. Having said that, I am disappointed in this "new" release. There is no real flow to this one, just a bunch of live songs thrown together for a cash grab. There are some highlights including 'Exit' and 'My Morning Song/Stare it Cold'. Otherwise, nothing we haven't already heard/paid for before. I strongly recommend using the 20 bucks you would've spent buying this one on any of the 2010 San Francisco shows available on iTunes. My personal favs are 12/12 and 12/15. or better yet, goto the liveblackcrowes website and get the 11/20/2008 show in Houston TX. Dream setlist, high energy and very good quality for half the price. I am looking forward to seeing the boys with Jackie Greene this year and maybe a genuine "new release" in the near future ?

Huh?

Alternative? Really? Try again. However, looking forward to this...

Great just like the Fillmore recordings

Songs are better recordings and sound better than the Live at the Fillmore series available on itunes. There are a few songs I wish they would have included but its still great. I am very happy with it, cant wait until Nashville 04/20-21.

Biography

Formed: 1984 in Atlanta, GA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
