As the Crowes Fly: Those hard-rockin’ hemp-smokin’ Black Crowes bound onto the album chart this week with “Croweology,” which enters at No. 13 with 21,000 moved, good for honors outside the top 10. The Atlanta band is celebrating 20 years in action, and the new collection features acoustic versions of the group’s hits. They kick off a tour on Thursday in Milwaukee.
Slow Roller: Ryan Star’s “11:59” creeps onto the chart at No. 31 with a 12,000-unit bow. If the name sounds familiar, Star (né Ryan Stahr Kulchinsky) has been kicking around for the better part of a decade, and is a former contestant and finalist on the competition series “Rock Star: Supernova.”
