Quote:
The Magpie Salute is a new band bringing together three key members of famed rockers the Black Crowes — guitarist-vocalist Rich Robinson, guitarist Marc Ford, and bassist Sven Pipien. The lineup is rounded out by members of Rich Robinson’s own band, plus several of their musical friends. The outfit, which started in October 2016, has garnered excitement from the get-go, having sold out a four-night run at New York’s Gramercy Theatre this month.

Yahoo Music is pleased to debut a very special performance video for the song “Comin’ Home,” which begins with a tribute to late keyboardist Eddie Harsch (who passed away on Nov. 4). Harsch was set to perform with the band during their engagement at the Gramercy. The video was filmed in Woodstock in August 2016 and features Harsch talking, rehearsing, and subsequently performing “Comin’ Home” with the band.

“This recording came from the last time I got to play with Eddie Harsch,” says Rich Robinson. “He was my friend and musical teacher. His mastery and subtlety will forever be an inspiration.”

I wonder how much post processing there was on the track; if that's how it came out live in one take, that was smoking!

that was excellent, Joe, thanks for posting. I've seen CRB twice since the Crowes disbanded. Great to see Rich and Sven together again, too bad without Eddie now. RIP Eddie.

Love the Delany & Bonnie song. I do prefer a sparser mix but i can tell Rich chose it with love because of how true to Delany he played and sang it. Rock on wherever you are Eddie.

Funny how they had 2 keyboard players covering bobby whitlock though. I know this is an eddie harsch thread but why not more love for bobby whitlock around here? I bet this is the only mention going back 2 years.

Bobby is a monster. Great player, great singer. Hanging around Stax as a teenager wore off on him...so soulful!

I saw the Crowes in August 1992 I think. They did a free concert in Toronto at Dundas and Finch St. It was the same time the 1989 Steel Wheels concert video was playing on IMAX over at Ontario Place.

I worked for the Crowes label during the early releases, and saw them many times. They were a really great live band in those pre-jamming days. I thought they lost the magic as they headed in Grateful Dead/jam band territory later on. But their early releases still hold up for me; great songs and punchy production.

Best tour I saw was the Crowes headlining and Jellyfish the opener. Kinda like seeing Faces and Wings....amazing concert.

Saw Eddie originally with Albert Collins .... at the old Lone Star Roadhouse in NYC....played a Korg SG1 and an old Ver. Korg Organ (original ver. from the 80's)

Good Good blues player way before the Crows, nice they are doing that for him....

I also thought of the Faces comparison many times. Always thought "Jealous Again" specifically could have been a Faces song.

Supposedly Faces albums were played to the band by the producer as the direction he wanted them to go for the first album. I have heard they were more like REM sonically when signed...

Saw them for the first time in 99 in Albuquerque (I was there on vacation) with Jimmy Page. I thought they were great. Ive seen them a few times since, obviously with a shifting lineup, the last one featuring Jackie Greene.

I went to Phases of the Moon fest in 2013 to catch CRB, but the first day/nite was a washout/mudslide, so it never happened. They're in Taos next month on a Tuesday, but I'm making the trek.

Wow - that new track is awesome. Sounds like this is as close as a Crowes reunion we're going to get, and like Rich, I'm fine with that as this band is killin'. thu

(I said almost the exact same thing in January...) wacko

I saw him with Albert Collins at the old LoneStar Roadhouse in NYC in the early 90's before he was in the BC's...he was a very good straight ahead blues player.

He played a Korg SG1 88 and a Ver. 1 Korg CX-3.

RIP Eddie
Oh I said that already right down to the instruments....weird!

The new Magpie Salute album is out. Rich Robinson, Sven Pipien, and Marc Ford (all former members of the Crowes) are in the band. If you dug the Crowes, I think you'll dig this band. Unless you had a thing for Chris' nasally voice. wink

Seriously, this is like the Crowes are basically back together. If they got Gorman, it would be as close as it could be without Chris since Eddie is gone. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the drummer.

I forgot - Eddie Harsch *is* on this album. It was the last thing he recorded.

This is a great though little keyboard content interview with Rich and Marc. In it, the Gorman question was addressed.

Quote:
Why is Steve Gorman not in this band?
ROBINSON I called Steve and wanted him and Joe [their drummer] to play together. He said he was into it but he had to make sure of some scheduling issues; his radio show was getting re-upped and he said he couldn’t commit. Ultimately he couldn’t do it.
