The Horrible Crowes – Live At The Troubador

Even though The Horrible Crowes had only played one show prior to this live album being recorded, it was someone’s brilliant idea for the band to release a live album. Now in no way does that mean this live album is terrible, it’s just not the most logical thing to do. The album was recorded at, as the title suggests, the Troubadour in Los Angeles. Continuing the not enough to make due theme going on here, since The Horrible Crowes have only released one studio album to date, this live album is that sole album played front to back with the exception of two cover songs mixed in.

The record was pressed as a double LP and comes packaged with a DVD of the performance. So not only was the band’s second show recorded for audio but video as well. The show also aired on some TV networks well before this live album was announced. A download card is included as well. The album comes in a gatefold jacket with no inserts. There are three variants for this record, with two being for a U.S. pressing and the third being an European exclusive. There were 500 copies pressed on blue/black swirl that was/is only available in various bundles through Side One Dummy, 1000 copies on black and 1000 copies on orange, which is the Euro exclusive.

The aforementioned bundles started out as expensive ones that included everything (CD, vinyl, shirt, print) but since I already bought a bundle from the band’s last release that included a shirt and print I have no need for more of those. I wasn’t going to spend more money just to get the rarest variant. Apparently I’m not alone as the bundle exclusive color is still available.
