Black Crowes: 25th anniversary of debut album featured on In The Studio

The 25th anniversary of The Black Crowes 1990 debut, “Shake Your Money Maker”, is featured on the latest edition of North American rock radio series In The Studio.

Named after a 1961 Elmore James blues standard, the album introduced the Georgia rockers in a big way, delivering instant classics “Jealous Again”, “Twice As Hard” and “She Talks To Angels”, plus a cover of Otis Redding’s 1968 single, “Hard To Handle.”

The album peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 on its way to selling more than 5 million copies in the States alone.
