ACROSS THE BORDER
Where the banned are
Need to see them live and need to take a serious dig through their catalog. I love Margo Timmins. They played Victoria B.C not all that long ago so I looked to see if they were playing close to me but no cigar. Don't hear many people talk about All That Reckoning that came out in 2018 and not sure why. Pretty damn good I'd say.
Do it while you can! Dunno why it took me so long. Another one of life’s little regrets…..You on the west coast then?
You’re right about ATR, but also look out for a ‘companion’ release, Ghosts, that appeared a year or so later. Pretty sure it’s available digitally, but Ltd Ed vinyl also available direct from their online store as a double gatefold release, combined with its predecessor. If that format floats your boat then it’s worth shelling out for imho. Great music, impeccable pressing from Optimal Germany.
I bought the Trinity Sessions record off the back of a review in either one of the weekly inkies or a hi-fi magazine when it first came out. Immediately apparent it was, as you say, a stone cold classic. Staggering record then and now.
Remember taking it along to my hi-fi emporium of choice shortly after when I was auditioning new arms and all the staff guys coming in to give it a listen. They subsequently played a couple of tracks during a Naim sponsored evening demo event I was invited to. Quite staggering to hear it thru what was, at that time, the top end Linn/Naim set-up. Way beyond my means of course.
I followed them for a few albums and then kinda dropped out and back in a couple of times. Listening to them regularly again after catching them live in 2018 for the first time; played my all time fav: Cause Cheap Is How I Feel. Could listen to that song for hours.
When it comes to covers they have impeccable taste. Thunder Road, yes, but I’d have to pick out either Powderfinger or the inevitable Sweet Jane. Encored with Five Years at the show I caught, which was nice.
I might need to check this out.
I got massively into the Cowboy Junkies about the time One Soul Now came out (decent "Thunder Road" on the bonus CD) and had a right binge on their back catalogue.
Trinity Sessions (and Trinity Revisited) is a/are stone cold classic(s).
I saw them live once at The Usher Hall, right good gig, but then I just completely lost touch with them.
I keep meaning to revisit but I just never seem to have the time.
