Yes and no. soundaboard.blogspot.com is correct,BUT you have to add one blank space after it. That worked for me. Oh by the way THANKS for all the magnificent recordings here.

Great recording!! Being as it's a Pre-FM and ripped @ 320k, the sound quality is really quite good, though the vocals are a bit low at times, blown over by the thickly-layered sound of wailing guitars, keyboards and hammering drums that the Crowes are so well known for.

As for the performance itself, the sheer energy these boys generate is overwhelming. You can tell that the Brothers Robinson & band were definitely having fun playing this gig. Total Bonus, the cover art is just incredible. I've seen some great boot covers, but this stuff is right up there with anything I've ever seen. Very, very nice. (Schwing!)

Overall, I give this Crowes boot a solid 9. Big Thanx to whoever UL'ed it!

Actually, TBM, there just might be. ;) I used to be a music writer/editor, back there when I was in journalism school, in my wilad-arsed bachelor days...and while I don't claim to be any sort of "expert" on music, some bands I just really dig, and the Crowes were one of those bands whose music really called to me, in a sense. I was very glad to see the Brothers Robinson get the band moving forward with this new album, "Warpaint." Listening to it, it's an older, wiser Crowes powering up a familiar heavily-layered sound through the lense of road-weary maturity.

I wish them well, and while the new disc is good, it's still nice to delve back to their "Moneymaker/Southern Harmony/Amorica" era. With an eye on what was, and the other on this latest disc of theirs, I think we can expect good things from them in the future...and that would be very cool, IMO.

TBM - Google my nick, you'll find that I leave a lot of tracks, and that I've been doing it for a long time...but believe whatever seems good to you, it's not like I will ever lose sleep over the opinions of a stranger. Peace, etc...

Excellent, compare this to the Pink Floyd shit posted later and feel the difference between real music with balls and dinosaur shit.

I don't think I would dismiss Pink Floyd (and I am assuming that you were ) as "Dinosaur Sh*t"... I think that it all comes down to a matter of preference.

Truth be told, I listen to everything from Metallica to Mozart to Miles Davis to Muddy Waters, depending upon my mood and stress levels. ;) Floyd is great on a melancholy rainy morning (like this morning) with the first pot of coffee. Very nice way to start the day.

Just my opinion, that and a tired dollar will get me a cup of coffee down the street. Peace, etc...

AtticRock said...

Being the blog author I agree with H*P*D, otherwise you wouldn't see Floyd here.
Of course there's bands I like more and others less and I'm not as eclectic as H*P*D, I don't listen to classical or jazz music. But in the Rock area I mostly like the old guys, in fact Black Crowes music wouldn't be as good as it is if there wasn't The Allman Brothers, The Stones and so many other dinosaurs that were their main influence...

Anonymous said...

I've compared them. They are both good. However it strikes me that I have heard lots of bands that sound similar to the Black Crowes but there is only one Pink Floyd.

Yes, Titus, Floyd is Floyd, though I do find Porucpine Tree somewhat reminiscent of Floyd. While they have their own sound, more or less, the Floyd influence is strong and clear. I like them.

As for the Crowes, AtticRock, I believe I once described their sound as part-Stones, part-ABB with a dash of Rod Stewart & Small Faces (Chris Robinson's vocals). Many decried them as copy-cats...my take on it was (and still is) that it's a way-cool and way-fat sound that I just keep coming back to, all these years later. Some things stand the test of time. The Crowes, ABB, Floyd, Stones, Trower and many others just get better with time.

And that's all I have to say about that... ;)

I've heard Porcupine Tree & of course I hear the Floyd influence. But I am viewing the 'wider' Floyd. I can't see 'the Tree' coming up with 'Interstellar Overdrive'. I like a lot of dinosaur prog but PF don't fit that mould. Most of their music is in 4/4 time, the lyrics are often biting & political and Roger Waters is a mean SOB. We're not talking Jon Anderson here!
I've heard DSOTM too many times.
I envy anyone who has yet to memorise it.
