Song of the Week 7/11/08

The Black Crowes - "Locust Street"

I've always been a sucker for the slower entries in the Crowes catalog. "Thorn in My Pride" from The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion, "Miracle to Me" from Lions and especially "Wiser Time" from Amorica all received multiple plays from yours truly. ("Wiser Time" must have been on every mix tape I made in the second half of 1994.) I learned that Warpaint had two great ballads when earlier this year I had to produce an album premiere special. We didn't play "Locust Street" in that special, but hearing the song four times last week on WFUV sure makes me wish we had.

BONUS: Here's the Crows playing the song live for the first time in Sayreville, New Jersey.
