With a lowdown bass lick, uptown R&B horns and surging organ punctuating a catchy chorus, "Evil Woman (Don't Play Your Games With Me)" hit the Top 20 like a comet in 1969 and propelled Crow from Midwest club band into national touring act overnight. Thanks in part to covers by Black Sabbath and Ike and Tina Turner, it's one of the most recognizable hits of the era and, inexplicably, one of the few to not make the transition into the digital age. Until now.

Out of print for four decades, Crow's finest recordings are now available again on CD and 180-gram vinyl editions meticulously mastered from the original tapes. Long-suffering Crow fans can at last savor the best of the band's gritty run from 1969-1971, including not only "Evil Woman," but their other charting singles "Cottage Cheese," "Slow Down" and "(Don't Try to Lay No Boogie Woogie on the) King of Rock & Roll" -- not to mention deep album cuts like "Keeps Me Running." Both formats also feature a previously unreleased demo cover of the Beatles' "When I Get Home," and the CD edition adds a previously unreleased long version of "Cottage Cheese." Each edition comes fully equipped with memorabilia, photos and detailed liners by Doug Sheppard of Ugly Things magazine.

    Crow’s third and final release, Mosaic, was originally released in 1971. Largely unrecognized at the time, Mosaic contained one minor hit- “(Don’t Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie On The) King Of Rock And Roll,” which easily beats the subsequent version by Long John Baldry. Mosaic also features a catchy original song that should’ve been a hit- “Keeps Me Running.” Like their prior albums, Crow’s powerful organ-laden blues rock carries early ‘70s rock to new heights! Blending a new mixture of country...

      Following up their initial 1969 release Crow Music, Crow turns up the heat with Crow By Crow! Recalling bands like Eden’s Children and Crabby Appleton, Crow By Crow was released in May of 1970. Though the album only charted at #181, it spawned two minor hits- the Larry Williams cover “Slow Down,” and an original, “Cottage Cheese.” Performed live, Cottage Cheese was a crowd favorite. It’s raunchy blues boogie and skin-beating drum break, compliments of ex-Castaways drummer Denny Craswell, was...

        Surging brass and organ-laden funk wonderment! Combining gritty blues with nasty, hard-charging garage rock Crow was formed in 1967. After winning a recording session with Columbia from a battle of the bands contest in Des Moines, Iowa, the band recorded five demos: Evil Woman, Time to Make a Turn, Busy Day, and White Eyes. Columbia didn’t offer the band a contract, but Dunwich signed the band. Recording their first electrifying album, Crow Music, in 1969, Crow delivered their very best....
