The Black Crowes Present: Shake Your Money Maker, the multi-platinum debut album by The Black Crowes, is being re-released in multi-format sets on February 26 through UMe/American Recordings.

Band founders, brothers Chris and Rich Robinson, with original producer George Drakoulias, oversaw the creation of the re-release. Most exciting are the 4LP and 3CD Super Deluxe versions, which includes the original album, remastered; 3 never-before-heard studio recordings; 2 unreleased demos from the band’s early incarnation as Mr. Crowe’s Garden; B-sides; a spectacular, high-energy 14-song unreleased concert recorded in their hometown of Atlanta, GA in December 1990; reproductions of an early Mr. Crowe’s Garden show flyer, setlist and tour laminate; a 4″ Crowes patch; and a 20-page book with liner notes by David Fricke.

One of the previously unheard studio songs, “Charming Mess,” which was originally slated to be the band’s first single, but was ultimately left off of the album entirely, is available today. You can check it out below.

A 2CD Deluxe version has the remastered album along with the unreleased studio songs, demos, and B-sides. There are also standard 1CD and1LP versions that are the mastered version of the original.

Shake Your Money Maker was released originally in 1990 when rock was dominated by cheesy pop and hair metal. The Black Crowes gave the genre a much-needed swift kick in the ass with their debut album. That album, fueled by singles “Jealous Again,” “Twice As Hard,” “She Talks To Angels,” and a rollicking cover of fellow Georgian Otis Redding’s “Hard To Handle,” the band immediately took the music world by storm, selling over 5 million records and topping Rolling Stone’s “Best New American Band Readers Poll” in late 1990.
