COWBOY JUNKIES – ” Songs Of The Recollection “

Posted: March 20, 2022 in MUSIC

“Saying Cowboy Junkies ‘cover’ songs doesn’t quite do them justice. Like greats from the classic pop standards era, the Cowboy Junkies interpret the music of others. They embrace the songs, adapting them in their own style. The band’s latest release, “Songs Of The Recollection“, finds the band as distinctive and individual as when they started. Long admired for their carefully chosen covers, the new album consists of nine songs by some of the band’s favourite artists. Some of the tracks are newly recorded, while some are collected from earlier projects. Listen to “Songs Of The Recollection” and you’ll hear works originally written and recorded by Neil Young, Gordon LightfootBob DylanThe CureGram ParsonsVic Chesnutt, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie that the Junkies make their own — and make them sound perfectly natural beside each one another. “Long before we were musicians, we were music fans,” says guitarist Michael Timmins.

We didn’t grow up sitting around the kitchen table playing instruments and harmonizing. We grew up sitting around the record player listening to each other’s record collections and having our minds blown. This was the passion that we shared.”
