That this two-hour show counts as a “short set” by Black Crowes standards says a lot about the generosity of this band. For their twenty-plus-year career, the Robinson brothers and their bandmates have gone out there and given it their all, even when their personal issues clouded the situation offstage. Even if these were the band’s “last area shows” for this year and next (according to them) I’d say it’s a certainty they’ll be back at it in 2015. This band wouldn’t still be around if these guys didn’t love to play.

If the acoustic set we recorded last week was a bit longer, it also had a more languid pace than this all-business run-through that included more than its fair share of guitar pyrotechnics and uncommonly played offerings, but very little in the way of tuning pauses or stage banter. Even if the Led Zeppelin cover “Hey, Hey, What Can I Do” signaled a night that ended a bit too soon, nobody was denying how pumped they were to hear it. Similarly, the band’s cover of Stephen Stills’ “Isn’t It About Time?” had the entirety of Terminal 5 rocking. So did the one-two combo of “Hard To Handle” directly into Deep Purple’s “Hush” and a searing rendition of “Exit” from The Tall Sessions, among other moments that put this show up there with any Crowes gig I’ve seen.

So don’t worry — if you missed them at any of the numerous NYC dates they just played, expect them to be back. Until then, these fine captures should tide you over.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41 supercardiod microphones in a tight configuration from our usual spot in the venue. Johnny Fried Chicken Boy was next to me with his Milab VM-44 Links. Both recordings are on offer here and both are excellent. Enjoy!

    Took 2 hours to download, then find out that it is an audience tape not a soundboard. Not worth the time!

    Congratulations, George Markham! You’re officially the biggest idiot to comment on the site this year! Had to you spent even a fraction of the time it took you to leave your ignorant, ungrateful comment, you could have read some of this helpful information from the post, like:

    “I recorded this set with Schoeps MK41 supercardiod microphones in a tight configuration from our usual spot in the venue. Johnny Fried Chicken Boy was next to me with his Milab VM-44 Links.”

    or if you prefer the technical details:

    “Schoeps MK41 (PAS)>KCY>tinybox v2>Sony PCM-D50>24bit/48kHz WAV>Izotope Ozone 5 (EQ, exciter, stereo imaging)>Audacity 2.0.3 (tracking, fades, amplify, balance, downsample, dither)>FLAC ( level 8 )”

    You could also have learned, from some simple Googling, that the Black Crowes do not allow soundboard recordings by fans, because they sell them here. In fact, you can download this very show by handing over $9.99 to the band (for MP3; $14.95 for FLAC/ALAC) at that site.

    But since we spent over a hundred bucks on the tickets, not to mention the cost of the gear, the time spent setting up at the show, breaking down, and mixing down the show, maybe, since our version was free, you could’ve left a simple thank you. It’s Thanksgiving weekend after all.

    And of course, we pay for premium Soundcloud accounts so that we can post samples, of which there are two here.
    A good idea might be to listen to the samples before you download.

    Any way to ban George from future downloads?

    Although I haven’t seen these guys live since they were going by the moniker of Mr Crowe’s Garden, I’m going to have to point out that “Hush” isn’t a Deep Purple toon, it’s got deep southern roots – written by Joe South, the actual hit single version was performed by Billy Joe Royal – which is fitting from these Southern Boys.

    George is a douche who doesn’t appreciate the music anyway. Morning song would never apply to George!
