The Black Crowes Southern Harmony And Musical Companion Deluxe Edition from Universal MusicWorld-renowned rock band The Black Crowes released the box set of their chart-topping sophomore album, The Southern Harmony And Musical Companion, via American Recordings/UMe. The album, which entered the US Billboard album chart at No. 1 upon release in 1992, was named after a post-Civil War southern hymnal and is home to some of the band's biggest hits, including "Remedy," "Sting Me," and "Thorn in My Pride" which were #1 on the Billboard Main Stream Rock Airplay chart for a combined total of 21 weeks. Rich and Chris Robinson, alongside producer George Drakoulias, revisited the archives for the instant classic album. They also created a special super deluxe edition featuring unreleased studio recordings, rare B-sides, a live performance from Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, TX, on February 6, 1993, and a newly remastered album from the original 1/4" production master. The boxset features 14 unreleased recordings, including a previously unreleased studio recording of "Miserable" and a new take on the Memphis soul classic "99 Pounds." Originally from the catalog of renowned Memphis soul singer-songwriter Ann Peebles "99 Pounds" was first released on her 1972 album Straight From the Heart. The Black Crowes' cover of is a classic Rock & Roll take on a Southern Soul ballad.

At the end of the Southern Harmony and Musical Companion recording sessions in early 1992, the band performed live on the famed Southern Tracks Studio floor in Atlanta, GA, on January 4, 1992. The session was captured by a film crew and, true to The Black Crowes form, turned into a party. These never-before-released until now, live, studio recordings, feature five songs, including their cover of Ry Cooder's "Boomer's Story." Also included in the super deluxe edition, Southern Harmony Live, featuring all the tracks off the album, performed live in Houston, TX, on February 6, 1993. This legendary and much-bootlegged show has now been mixed from the 24-track tapes and is available alongside the original album, which has been remastered from the 1/4″ production master.

The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion is available now on stunning 4LP, 3CD, 2 CD, and 1LP formats. An exclusive, limited-edition "Remedy" Lyric T-shirt or Trucker Hat is also available as Fan Packs bundled with the 1LP in the Black Crowes official store. Alongside the box set, the band released a super deluxe digital audio.

The Black Crowes Chris Robinson said, "We've always thought that the music on Southern Harmony and Musical Companion was made of a certain magic that was in the air for us in 1992. This special box set represents all the ingredients of the spell we were under." "I always felt that Southern Harmony was us coming into our own as a band and creating our sound." The Black Crowes Rich Robinson elaborated. "We made the record in 8 days. Every song was one or two takes. No more than that. It was a snapshot of a band possessing all of its powers, and it still resonates with me to this day."

The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion is available in the following formats:

The Super Deluxe 4LP and 3CD Box Sets include the remastered The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion from the original 1/4" production master (LP1/CD1.) (LP2/ CD2) "More Harmony: Unreleased, Outtakes and B-Sides" features a collection of nine songs from the Southern Harmony recording sessions at Southern Tracks in Atlanta, GA between December 1991 and January 1992, including two unreleased recordings "99 Pounds" and "Miserable." On the last day of recording, the band played live, in studio on January 4, 1992, with covers of Bob Dylan's "Rainy Day Women #12 and 35," and Ry Cooder's "Boomer's Story." (LP3-4/ CD3) "Southern Harmony Live: February 6, 1993," in Houston, TX., originally recorded on a 24-track tape.
