Pink Floyd-Comfortably Numb-Knebworth 6-30-90

Black Crowes- Remedy- London 10-94

The Black Crowes always sounded deliciously rip-snorting loose whether live in concert or In the Studio, and it belied the fact that the band was impeccably rehearsed throughout all of their twenty-five years. Here is exhibit "A" in my case,…
