Vinyl Unboxing: The Black Crowes’ Shake Your Money Maker 30th Anniversary Box Set

It’s hard to believe but it’s been 30 years since The Black Crowes landed on the music scene with their debut album, Shake Your Money Maker. To celebrate the major milestone, brothers and founding members, Chris and Rich Robinson, have overseen the creation of a “Super Deluxe” box set alongside original producer George Drakoulias.

Upon its 1990 release, Shake Your Money Maker sold over five million copies and featured the hit singles ‘She Talks To Angels”, “Twice As Hard”, “Jealous Again”, “Seeing Things”, and a cover of Otis Redding’s “Hard To Handle”. The newly released edition features all the original tracks and contains a recently unearthed tune, “Charming Mess”, among other unreleased songs and B-sides.

Tune in below as That Shelf’s Managing Editor—and resident vinyl lover—Jason Gorber unboxes and gives us his verdict on the hefty 30th anniversary edition.

According to the band’s official site, the “Super Deluxe” anniversary edition contains:
