Nearly two decades on from their first record, 1993’s August and Everything After, Counting Crows remain one of the most respected American rock bands in existence. The immediate success of ‘Mr. Jones’, taken from this stunning debut, saw the group catapulted onto mainstream radio stations across the world, and ever since they have gone from strength to strength, releasing a further four albums to widespread acclaim as they continue to draw huge crowds whenever they tour.
Counting Crows – The Lowdown is a two disc celebration of Berkeley’s favourite sons and includes a spoken word biography of the group and an interview CD that together, offer an intimate portrait of this extraordinary collective.
Charting their rise from emerging Californian wannabes to global international superstars, disc one tells the complete Crows story. Disc two meanwhile features a collection of interviews with front man Adam Duritz in which he talks with great openness about the band’s journey, revealing previously unknown details of many of the events that have informed his song-writing, as well as offering his own views on some of their major milestones.
