Synopses & Reviews
With a style fusing bar-room RandB and southern US rock, the Black Crowes have attracted millions of fans the world over to their retro, deep-rooted no-frills approach. "Maximum Black Crowes" tells the complete and unauthorised story of the band from their earliest days in Atlanta through the long struggle to build a following at a time when their particular brand of music was out of fashion. With the tide turning against stadium rock, their 1990 debut album "Shake Your Money Maker" appealed as a simpler rock alternative taking the charts by storm and spawning a string of top forty album and singles that have taken the Crowes onto international rock superstardom. "Maximum Black Crowes" is well placed to catch the renewed commercial interest that will undoubtedly follow.
