Now Hear This: Crow | Crow Music / Crow By Crow / Mosaic Reissues

Over the course of just three powerhouse albums, this long-forgotten Twin Cities crew fused hard rock, psychedelia, funk, soul, R&B, blues, jazz-rock & much more.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Surging brass and organ-laden funk wonderment! Combining gritty blues with nasty, hard-charging garage rock, Crow’s first electrifying album delivered their very best. Reminiscent of Blood, Sweat & Tears, Deep Purple and James Gang, Crow blend an alluring mix of soul, funk, blues, psychedelia, and garage rock into one package. Crow Music is a holy grail of heart-poundin’, grease grindin’ rock!

Following up their initial 1969 release, Crow turn up the heat! Recalling bands like Eden’s Children and Crabby Appleton, Crow By Crow was released in May of 1970. The album spawned two minor hits; the Larry Williams cover Slow Down and the original Cottage Cheese, its raunchy blues boogie and skin-beating drum break, compliments of ex-Castaways drummer Denny Craswell, got fans movin’ and shakin’! This album’s dynamic, gutsy blues rock will be sure to have you on the dance floor in no time!

Crow’s third and final release carried early ’70s rock to new heights with their powerful organ-laden blues rock! Blending a new mixture of country and blues, with heavy steel pedal on Watching Can Waste Up The Time, Mosaic was Crow’s last effort to make it big before vocalist David Wagner departed the group. Taking funky rhythms, lots of wah-wah guitar, and hard-edged vocals makes this album a must-hear!”
