Crow – Crow Music [1969 US hard blues-rock - Flawed Gems GEM 34 Sweden 2010] – FLAC


Feliz Natal a todos; bem, nos idos dos anos setenta quando eu tinha em torno de 15 anos, uma das primeiras músicas do Black Sabbath que me chamaram a atenção foi "Evil Woman (Don't Play Your Games With Me)", música essa que fazia parte de seu antológico primeiro álbum, porém mal sabia eu que essa canção era um cover de uma banda que havia lançado o seu primeiro álbum no ano de 1969, e que posteriormente lançaria mais dois fantásticos álbuns (Crow By Crow [1970] e Mosaic [1971]), mas como nunca é tarde demais para nada, nos final dos anos noventa eu comecei a descobrir e desfrutar obscuras e fantásticas bandas do final dos anos sessenta e dos anos setenta também. 

E aqui está essa fabulosa banda de hard blues-rock, chamada Crow, e o seu brilhante primeiro álbum, para o deleite de todos vocês!

P.S.: No ano de 1982 houve uma reunião da banda, e a partir daí foi lançado um novo álbum (Crow on the Run) que infelizmente teve lançamento apenas lá "na área dos caras", e até na WEB é difícil obter informações sobre esse álbum!


Dave Wagner’s “Evil Woman, Don’t Play Your Games With Me” has truly passed the test of time since its original release in the fall of 1969.
CROW had a truly unique sound which included aggressive musical interpretations combined with a distinctive blues rock sound.
“Evil Woman Don’t Play Your Games With Me” charted nationally and hit the top ten of the national Billboard 500 during the winter of 1969.
So diversely influential in the music world this release from the band was that Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath covered the hit on their very first release in 1970, an album which was not at the time released in the United States, but has since been released in the United States on the 2004 Black Sabbath Greatest Hits compilation CD.
Also, Ike and Tina Turner covered “Evil Woman Don’t Play Your Games With Me” on their album “Come Together.”
During its original hay day of the 1960’s and 1970’s, CROW toured nationally and shared the bill with the likes of Janis Joplin, Iron Butterfly, Jefferson Starship, The Steve Miller Band, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and numerous others.
Top honors for a top band. A total of four albums were released including “Crow Music”, “Crow By Crow”, “Mosaic”, and “The Best of Crow”.
A fifth album, “Dave Wagner d/b/a CROW”, was released a couple of years later. Additional tracks which were a result of those releases included Cottage Cheese, Slow Down, (Don’t Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie on the) King of Rock N’ Roll, and Gone, Gone, Gone (from http://www.armentertainment.com/crowpage.htm).

  2. It may be hard to believe, but this is the CD debut of this great, but underrated title! Crow had a truly unique sound characterized by quite aggressive electric guitar and Hammond organ parts, combined with a distinctive blues and even soul elements (like horn section on three tracks). Sometimes their music resembled the early Steppenwolf and Vanilla Fudge – which certainly was not bad. This CD edition has been carefully remastered from the original, analogue source.
