Croweology is an acoustic-based album by rock band The Black Crowes, released on August 3, 2010. The set includes newly-recorded versions of nineteen songs from the band's career, covering their albums from Shake Your Money Maker to Lions, plus a cover of the Chris Ethridge and Gram Parsons song "She", in mostly-acoustic arrangements. Critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine stated 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] Croweology was the last studio record released by the band.
