The Lost Crowes is a compilation album by American rock band The Black Crowes. The two-disc compilation comprises material composed and recorded during the Tall and Band sessions in 1993 and 1997, respectively. Many of the songs on Tall were early versions of songs that later appeared the 1994 album Amorica, with one appearing on the 1996 album Three Snakes And One Charm.

The album Band was recorded in 1997 but never released. In its place the band recorded and released By Your Side in 1998.

Originally, the Lost Crowes was slated to be released in late August 2006, but was pushed back to September 26 due to a manufacturing error in which the disc art for the two albums was reversed.
