The Black Crowes Homecoming Concerts 30th Anniversary

PURCHASE HERE!

In 1990 The Black Crowes gave the rock genre a much-needed swift kick in the ass with their debut album Shake Your Money Maker. That album, fueled by singles "Jealous Again," "Twice As Hard," "She Talks To Angels," and a rollicking cover of fellow Georgian Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle," immediately took the music world by storm, selling over 5 million records and topping Rolling Stone's "Best New American Band Readers Poll" in late 1990.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of their debut album, the band recently released a multi-format reissue of Shake Your Money Maker, which included a previously unreleased iconic live set from December 20, 1990 at The Center Stage in Atlanta, GA. The Robinson brothers sat down with the AJC to discuss what made that show at Atlanta’s Center Stage so special:

CR: We did two or three nights there and one of them was my 24th birthday. The year before we were probably playing The Cotton Club or The Point in Little Five Points to 30 people. To have that first year of success with the record and us (becoming) The Black Crowes – it was super special to see all of our friends and family there. People magazine was there to interview our parents! We were so excited to have Chuck Leavell (who played on the album) play on those shows. The footage from the “She Talks to Angels” video was from those shows.

RR: I was 19 when we made (“Shake Your Moneymaker”) and realistically a year out of high school and living with my parents. So to get on a bus and go out for a year and come back to two or three sold-out shows at this venue where we had watched so many people play…I mean, I saw the Replacements there, I saw Iggy Pop with Jane’s Addiction opening, The Church - just so many cool bands had played there. For us to come back and play it was pretty cool. I was shocked at how good the show sounded. There was a lot of energy, a lot of good playing, a lot of excitement.

Vance Kelly created the official poster for us commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Homecoming Concerts:

When The Black Crowes first came on the scene back in 1990, I was blown away. I loved their 70's Rock and Blues vibe and still a fan to this day. I used their original two crows from that era for inspiration and took it into a more ethereal realm. - Vance Kelly
