Stone The Crows: Ontinuous Performance

Charles Shaar Murray, Cream, November 1972

I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE that this album hasn't sold 87 million copies. The Crows are one of that select handful of red-hot live bands who not only do in the heads of everybody who sees them, but manage to produce superb rockanroll every time. They can pack out the Rainbow, inspire total love and adoration from audiences, cure acne, shave your legs and save your soul. What they can't do is sell records.

Total word count of piece: 640
