Counting Crows: Making Hits, Looking Ahead

In the 15 years since releasing its breakthrough debut album, the San Francisco band Counting Crows has become one of the most popular and easily identifiable rock groups in America. The band followed its 1993 smash August and Everything After with a string of successful follow-up albums and tours (alongside Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones and others). Counting Crows stopped by World Cafe before performing a sold-out Live Fridays Concert at WXPN.

After selling more than 20 million CDs worldwide and making appearances on high-profile movie soundtracks, Counting Crows just released its seventh album, Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings. Lead singer Adam Duritz describes how each half of the album is distinct, from musical, thematic and production standpoints.

This segment previously aired March 14, 2008.
