Product Description

Product Description

Analogue Productions proudly presents an audiophile SACD remaster of the Counting Crows's superb début album August and Everything After. The album's eleven tracks, masterfully produced by T Bone Burnett, were like an intimate song cycle - marrying post-punk with old-school jams in a magical blend that appealed to fans of both alternative and classic rock in equal measure. Riding high on the success of mega-hits like "Mr. Jones" and "Rain King," the album quickly went multi-platinum. Twenty years on, the album still holds up well. Channeling legends like Van Morrisson, The Band and Dylan, Counting Crows crafted a recipe for success that will no doubt reserve them a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. An interesting bit of trivia - the album's cover depicts handwritten lyrics to a song called "August and Everything After," but the band decided against featuring the song on the album. First played at of one of their live concerts, fans had to wait for over a decade to finally hear it.

It's amazing the difference a year makes. Upon its release, August and Everything After sounded remarkably fresh, a welcome change from the crunch and screech of grunge. Blending the vocal athleticism of Van Morrison with the moody rock of The Band, the Counting Crows turned on a whole legion of fans turned off by modern rock. But what sounded fresh soon became stale as dozens of bands flocked to the radio with euthanised versions of the Counting Crows' sound. But you shouldn't hold that against the Crow boys. August and Everything After is a fantastic rock album. Though "Mr. Jones" was the money-maker, the disc features such stand-out cuts as the dark lilt of "Anna Begins", the morose "Rain King", and the outstanding U2-meets-Grant Lee Buffalo anthem "Murder of One". Maybe time, and another listen, will heal the damage wrought. --Tod Nelson

Counting Crows is one of those steady bands that you just know you can count on for music that your going to love. Such a recognizable band & vocals that you can instantly identify them when you hear them on the radio. Whenever I hear them on this CD it brings me back to a period of time when Friends & Seinfeld were playing on TV, people were going to Bush parties as that's what was cool at the time. Everyone brought Counting Crows camping to blast on the Ghetto blaster (we have to have electricity just for that, but we can just eat cereal out of the box! Ha! Ha!)

1.Round Here: I love this song, a ballad....kind of countryish roots but with rock in the arteries of it. Well written lyrics and I just love the ending portion of the vocal...just caps it off!

2.Omaha: The drums really make this song and I even liked hearing the few strums on the banjo. I think their moneymaker is their ability at lyrical writing. They get to the "heart" of what they wish to convey for sure. Makes you want to pickup & make a road trip to the big O!

3.Mr.Jones: Okay everyone get up on your feet and start cutting a grove...couldn't you just see all the flower children dancing circles at Woodstock if this song had been around back then! Even the "Sha-la-la fits this song! Sounds like he & Mr. Jones had a blast partying it up! Definite a song relating back to a time of youth gone by!

4.Perfect Blue Buildings: My favorite song on this CD; still on my favorite playlist. Just classic Counting Crows to me and one of the best vocals, instrumental construction in combination! Haunting lyrics.......sounds like someone in a state of desperation looking for ways to feel okay again. Some of the best written lyrics!!!!!!!

Nothing but praise here, especially at Amazon's discounted price of $43 for the Analogue Productions 45rpm double album. Flat and quiet pressing with beautifully reproduced cover and interior art. And the sound? Compared to the CD of this played over my Linn Karik transport into a Theta Casablance Extreme DAC it wasn't a fair fight. The vinyl played back via my Linn LP12 threw an enormous soundstage, quiet and full of ambience and air. The unforced detail in the vocals and strings was also very impressive as was the slam in the bass. I find it hit and miss these days whether vinyl will beat CD, but in this case it's not even close. Grab this one before it becomes a collectors' item.

Ever since I got a promotional copy of "Round Here" I became fascinated with this song. The lyrics, the voice, it just makes such a perfect ballad to move anybody's heart.
"She has trouble acting normal when she's nervous..."
"She's always on my mind..."
I don't know why this song never reached the popularity it deserves (people will always see this album as the "Mister Jones'") but hey, just give it a chance!

I bought August and Everything after with a group of other CDs because I found "Mr. Jones" very catchy and some people I know raved about them. For a few months I just listened to Round Here anbd Mr. Jones, the album's first and third tracks, respectively. One night as I was getting ready for bed I decided to pop the CD into my stereo and listen to the whole thing while flipping through a magazine. The magazine was quickly forgotten as I stared at my speakers, startled as each song playing was better than the last.
Orignially I would skip number four, "Perfect Blue Buildings," but I think it was in my anticipation to get to number five, "Anna Begins" (a favorite with almost all Counting Crows fans). But now I realize it's as good as the rest of the CD. I'd like to say the highlights are "Anna Begins," "Raining in Baltimore," "Round Here," "A Murder of One," and "Rain King," but that would be lying since every single song on this CD is great. "Mr. Jones," though radio friendly, is one of the weaker songs on the CD, which is saying something, since it's still a solid song. And unlike a lot of rock/pop bands today, the songs are all different. The album flows together well, but the band doesn't continuously use the same chords or rhythms. Adam Duritz's vocals and lyrics, and the band's musical ability let you kow you are listening to a Counting Crow's song, not just one contrived, distictive "sound." Any band would be proud to have written just one of these twelve songs.
I've owned this CD for at least 7 years now, and I still listen to it very frequently. It might even be my most-listened to album.

this cd changed me. when i first bought it, i bought it like most other people did...after i heard "mr jones" on the radio. i listened to it quickly, and tossed it aside. then one night, it was raining and i was driving to meet a friend, and i popped this cd in to give it another whirl. that was over ten years ago, and i haven't stopped listening to it since.
my personal favorite song on this album is "anna begins". it really has lyrics to which most anyone can relate. "sullivan street", "a murder of one", "round here", "time and time again", " raining in balitmore" and "rain king" are also all great songs. this is a shining example of an album where the worst song on the cd was also the most popular. if you liked "mr jones" i suggest you move past that track and into some of the others.
i have neve posted a reviw of an album before, but when i stumbled upon this one once again, i had to write something about it. counting crows cemented their spot near the top of my all time favorite artists on a rainy night in 1993, and i haven't looked back. buy it, you won't regret it.
