365 Days of Album Recommendations - April 2

Cowboy Junkies – The Trinity Sessions

Hard to believe this album is almost 30 years old!

Honestly, I’m not entirely convinced a better contribution has been made to acoustic/folk/folk-rock/country/country-rock/alt country/Americana/singer-songwriter music in the years since this album was delivered to history from an old church via a single stereo microphone. 140 more words

Great Northern

‘Good morrow, Benedick:

Why, what’s the matter,

That you have such a February face,

So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?’

Chris Bachelder--"Deep Wells, USA" [The Short Story Advent Calendar #7] (2016)

SOUNDTRACK: COWBOY JUNKIES-Tiny Desk Concert #211 (April 26, 2012).

I’d published these posts without Soundtracks while I was reading the calendars.  But I decided to add Tiny Desk Concerts to them when I realized that I’d love to post about all of the remaining 100 or shows and this was a good way to knock out 25 of them. 642 more words

Short Story

Blue Moon: not once but four times (a teenage dream re-blogged)

Back when the 50s had just turned into the 60s, in the days of listening to Radio Luxembourg at night on a valve radio that glowed in the dark; in my early teenage days, before the beat from out of Liverpool had shaken things up – in those days, one of my favourite singles was ‘Blue Moon’ by the Marcels. 1,876 more words


November 20: Leonard Cohen, Cowboy Junkies, kd lang, Joni Mitchell, Rush, Rufus Wainwright, Neil Young

This week, I’ll be looking at some of the Canadian albums on the list. There aren’t an awful lot of Canadian artists on the 1001, but those that are represented generally have multiple albums, almost as if the quality is concentrated in a small group. 916 more words

Does anyone else love Cigarettes After Sex?

I’m talking about the band, of course.  I can’t get enough of them.  (I do keep getting their name wrong, though, and calling them “Sex After Cigarettes,” because I’m old and square.) 64 more words

Squeezing Love

Breathing in you.
Breathing out you.
My lungs alone,
Love you.
Been in this prickly isolation.
Oh how long can we suffer?
Before the mind is bleak in blunders. 100 more words
