4.0 out of 5 stars A decent enough 'best of' with a twist. 6 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a double album of mainly acoustic versions of Crowes songs from the first six albums. While some of the songs are too similar to the original to make it worth re-recording them, others have a nice twist to them. My morning song and Girl from a pawnshop are my favourites on this album. I also like the songs with an extended jam (like they do when playing live). As this is a double album for the price of a single it is very good value for money and as usual there is always something to love on a crowes album. A nice way to begin their hiatus, lets hope for some more solo stuff and maybe some time in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Crowes Accoustic 28 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
This was the first complete album of the Crowes that I bought from Amazon and, after buying a further six albums, I can only tell you that it gets better and better. The group have a way of putting over rock music that blows your socks off every time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hallelujah! 15 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an acoustic double CD that clocks in at over 2 hours with the Crowes augmented with gospel backing singers, pedal steels, fiddles and even the odd banjo for good measure.
I think the second CD is slightly better with the highlight being 'My Morning Song' which turns into some kind of gospel jam but the overall highlight has to be the 'Ballad In Urgency'/'Wiser Time' combo as one drifts out and the other drifts in.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that a few of the songs are too similar to the originals or just don't work.
C'est la vie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crowes bow out in style! 20 Sep 2010
By DaveL
Format:Audio CD
The Black Crowes have always had a hard time finding their audience. They were initially marketed alongside metal bands and put on at shows like Donnington Monsters of Rock Festival, where, inevitably, they went down like a lead balloon. They are, however, to those in the know, one of the best rock n roll acts on the planet and have survived the test of time by delivering consistently great material through their different 'phases'.

This also means that what they don't know about rock, blues, gospel and soul ain't worth knowing. They are as much Sly and the Family Stone as they are Willie Dixon and they pay their dues alright to those who've gone before and influenced their sound. Their famous free taping policy of live gigs and extensive touring schedules have resulted in probably the biggest collection of bootlegs and live recordings of any rock band. Dig into this treasure trove and you'll find superb covers of folks like Neil Young, Stephen Stills, The Band, Otis Redding, Gram Parsons, The Stones.... the list goes on.

This CD brings together most of The Crowes' best tunes, delivered pretty much acoustically, with help from a percussionist and pedal steel player. I've got to say, having seen the group play live many times, this is up there with the best of em. The band have re-worked most of the songs and played about with the arrangements and orchestration of the tunes, but in a really good way. As a result, most of them swing along nicely with a funky feel. My Morning Song goes to church at the end with a brilliant gospel stomp, followed perfectly by Downtown Money Waster in the same vein.

Any Crowes fan knows they'll hear some great solos, a bit of jamming, but most of all singer Chris Robinson's soulful vocals carry the whole thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 11 Aug 2011
By Phil T
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Whilst never being the biggest Black Crowes fan in the world I had always enjoyed most of their earlier output. Suddenly with the release of Before the Frost I was hooked.I rate it has one of my favourite albums-and I was delighted when the band recorded Croweology in very much the same style.I personally enjoy the steel guitar, banjos etc-and the whole recording sounds like everybody had a great time. I know it's maybe not for die hard Crowe fans, but I really like the newer versions of the older stuff just as much-and in most cases more.

5.0 out of 5 stars some superb tracks 13 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are some really outstanding tracks on this album. Also a few so-so that nearly dragged my rating down to 4. I would say that although some of the numbers are acoustic versions of old songs, this would still make an excellent introduction to the BCs. And by acoustic, I dont mean thin anaemic or slow - not one man and a guitar - these numbers are as full-on gloriously tuneful and rocky as any electric version.
