Released in 1990, Shake Your Money Maker immediately established The Black Crowes as a formidable rock 'n' roll band in the tradition of The Rolling Stones and The Faces. Rolling Stone magazine and its readers named the Crowes the Best New American Band in 1990, and this album scored a string of excellent singles, including "Jealous Again," "Hard to Handle" (an Otis Redding cover), and "She Talks to Angels," which touched on drug addiction. In those pre-grunge days, The Black Crowes were one of the few rock 'n' roll bands landing hits with smart songwriting and an organic sound of tough guitars and a Hammond B-3 organ (played by none other than The Rolling Stones' keyboard man and former Allman Brothers member Chuck Leavell). The album has a deep bench. "Twice As Hard," "Sister Luck," and "Seeing Things" capture a Southern rock that's strong in all areas of writing and performance, while a flat-out rocker like "Thick N' Thin" is the kind of upbeat shuffle that the Stones threw onto Exile on Main Street.
