Croweology is an acoustic-based album by rock band The Black Crowes, released on August 3, 2010. The set includes 20 tracks from the band's career, covering their albums from Shake Your Money Maker to Lions in mostly acoustic rearrangements, featuring a cover of the Chris Ethridge and Gram Parsons song "She." Critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine states the Crowes capture "the sound of seasoned veterans still finding new ways to play old favorites"[2] and the double album is "a generous, entertaining gift to the fans who have stayed true throughout the years."[2]
