I remember a time when the Black Crowes were "da bomb." They had released Shake Your Money Maker and the album was a hit. They were touted as the saviors of rock and roll, as they boasted a blues-based rock sound that hadn't really been felt in main stream rock since the Stones and Zeppelin were in their hey-days.
Their second album. Southern Harmony & Musical Companion, was pretty good, but nowhere near as good as their first (I don't think anybody expected them to have a follow-up bigger than their first). Still, the album was respectable - featuring a song called "Remedy." A rockin' song, featuring strong guitar riffs, blues-backing piano, and a strong-drum sound.
Not sure what is exactly being depicted in the song, but it sounds like it's about a guy who is love-crazed and needs a "love-remedy." of sorts. The chorus also features a gospelly-bluesy female backing that takes the song over the top.
Just a great rockin' song (sadly, the band lost focus and their remaining albums never hit the mark).
