Shake Your Money Maker
(Vinyl - 2015 reissue)


Artist: The Black Crowes
Label: American/UMe
RRP: £24.99
Release Date: 04 December 2015

American/UMe is re-releasing the first four The Black Crowes American Recordings albums on 180-Gram vinyl. Fans of the band will be able to pick up 1990’s Shake Your Money Maker as a single disc, while 1992’s The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, 1994’s Amorica and 1996’s Three Snakes and One Charm will all be issued as two-LP sets with sound cut directly from masters...

Shake Your Money Maker, the band’s debut album, featured two Top 30 Billboard singles including their cover of Otis Redding’s 'Hard to Handle' and the acoustic ballad 'She Talks to Angels.'

This is still arguably The Black Crowes most impressive, and important album. It features the band's two most notable singles - tracks that everyone (of a certain age, at least) will know.

For lovers of vinyl, American/UMe do a wonderful job of bringing back a much loved classic album. Although, on its original release the majority of listeners would most likely have picked this up on CD as vinyl was dying a slow death.

This is an essential addition to your vinyl collection.
