Released: Nov 1990
Label: Psm Records
The Black Crowes' 1990 debut is a quality slab of classic rock revivalism, but Heartbreak Station, released the same year, is way cooler. Where the Crowes cut Sticky Fingers with tender Rod Stewart, Cinderella injected Beggars Banquet full of AC/DC's manic virility and need to drill grooves straight into our noggins. Rattling with congas, densely layered horns and cowbells as big as the Liberty Bell, beer jammers like "Love's Got Me Doing Time" and "Sick for the Cure" are prime blues rock.
