The Black Crowes est un groupe de rock américain fondé en 1989 à Atlanta, en Georgie.
Leur rock sudiste est très fortement influencé par des pionniers tels que The Allman Brothers Band et Lynyrd Skynyrd, mais aussi largement ancré dans la musique des Faces, de groupes des années 1960-1970 tels que les Rolling Stones (période Mick Taylor) ou bien encore Led Zeppelin.

Chris then added the vocal melodies and corresponding lyrics, which pertained to his then-wife, Kate Hudson.While Chris believed this early form of “Soul Singing”, with one instrumental section throughout, sufficed, Rich argued a second section was needed. “So we talked about that one for a while”, recalled Rich, who ultimately won the argument.

Rich recorded his guitar part with a James Trussart metal-bodied electric, which offered a resonator-like tone. “I knew that guitar was the only one that could go from sounding acoustic in the verses to electric in the chorus in the way that I wanted”, said Rich.
The sessions were recorded on tape and Pro-Tools simultaneously; the band ultimately chose to use the tape version, as they preferred its sound quality. Most songs were recorded live with the band members playing together in one room,[5] and microphones set up to capture the overall sound rather than that of individual instruments. Was felt this approach best approximated the feel of a Black Crowes concert, later noting that the Lions songs debuted at a private show in February 2001 “sounded exactly like the record
