The Black Crowes want to put something in your stocking for ya
Oh, I am SO out of season. What the heck, Heather? Well, compare this post to your half-off after-Christmas sale. You can get really good things after the holidays are over.
I was a little slow on the uptake finding this new Black Crowes cover of an old R&B/Blues song, and didn't find it until after Christmas (like January), and then I forgot to post it. But take a listen, it is so good, so swaggering, so Southern-moonlight that I had to post it.

There is a live DVD coming out from the Crowes in March, titled Freak 'N' Roll into the Fog, recorded at the Fillmore in San Francisco in 2005. There's also a new album alleged in 2006 from these guys, but nothing concrete. Let's hope.
