Formed in 1989 in Marietta, GA, by brothers Chris and Rich Robinson while still in high school, and originally named Mr. Crowe’s Garden after a children’s book, The Black Crowes recorded a total of eight studio albums, starting with 1990’s Shake Your Money Maker, which was released by Rick Rubin’s Def American label. That debut, named after a classic Elmore James blues song, peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200, selling more than 5 million copies worldwide (and 3 million in the U.S.), with two singles, “Hard to Handle” and the acoustic ballad “She Talks to Angels,” going Top 30 on the Billboard 100 and #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, with three more, “Jealous Again,” “Twice as Hard” and “Seeing Things,” also charting. The group went on to sell 30 million albums internationally, being named Best New American Band by Rolling Stone readers in 1990.

 

Shake Your Money Maker: The band’s debut album featured two Top 30 Billboard singles in their cover of Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle” and the acoustic ballad “She Talks to Angels.” Recorded in the summer of 1989 in Atlanta and Los Angeles with producer George Drakoulias, the album featured Allman Brothers keyboardist Chuck Leavell. Several of the songs, including “Could I’ve Been So Blind” and “She Talks to Angels,” whose riffs were originally penned by Rich Robinson when he was 17, come from the band’s incarnation as Mr. Crowe’s Garden. Critics compared them to the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and the Faces.
