Biography

"Our problem isn't a dearth of ideas, but rather a surplus," says Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies. "For the first time, we are completely free of any recording contracts and obligations. We find ourselves writing and recording more than we have in years, our studio feels more and more like home, and the band now has twenty-five years under the hood and is sounding so darn ...

Junkies of this Canadian country-punk quartet have been clamoring for a new "best-of," and here it is: over 70 minutes of music from four albums-including their notorious Trinity Sessions ! Includes their hit version of Lou Reed's Sweet Jane plus Blue Moon Revisited (A Song for Elvis); Rock and Bird; Escape Is So Simple; Southern Rain; Cold Tea Blues; Hard to Explain; To Live Is to Fly; Misguided Angel , and seven more!

Customer Reviews

Great addition to anyones CD collection.
Thomas M. Ruane
The band told them they were not interested in participating, but BMG made it anyway.

This is a good album to start with and has some of their great songs.

Even though I have all these songs on other CDs of theirs, I decided to buy it just to have in my collection. However, I find this 'Best of' disappointing because there are very few songs here I consider the 'Best of' Cowboy Junkies. If you really want to hear the 'Best of ' this group, go buy "Lay it Down", "Black-Eyed Man", and "Trinity Sessions". To me, that is the best of the Cowboy Junkies!!

This CD was put out without the blessing of the band. In fact, they would prefer you to download their tunes off the Internet instead buying it. And besides, so many of their albums are so good I can't imagine being able to pick a handfull of "best" songs. CJ fans, for sure, would not be interested in this CD. Neophytes would do well to explore in my order of preference Black-Eyed Man, Miles from our Home, Open, the Trinity Sessions, etc. Really can't miss with this fine group of musicians who deserve and merit the respect of their devoted fans, me among them.

Go to cowboyjunkies site. They have asked their fans NOT to buy this album in which they were not involved in any aspect of its making and are highly insulted by these producers making their "best of" behind their back. They would rather have you download mp3's and burn your own cd. At least that's what Margo said at the concert where I saw them live this summer. BMG has pulled out to honor their request, but RCA has not.

A decent selection of the great catalogue of songs that Cowboy Junkies have created over the years. Unfortunately, there are some music industry-related issues involved that spoil the fun. Check out the band's website for more information.

This is a nice collection for anyone not familiar with Cowboy Junkies. However, any best of without "River Waltz" or "Bea's Song", two of their best, is incomplete. But this is a great listen and I would recommend it to any new listeners. Kind of like Cowboy Junkies with training wheels. If you like what you hear, move on to some of their other albums, all of which are great!

This is a very disappointing collection. If you want a good collection, buy "Studio" which contains many of the same songs with excellent liner notes by the band.

This is a fantastic compilation of the Cowboy Junkies work. Definately a mellow mix. Great for Sunday mornings. I recommend it for anyone who has enjoyed some or all of their stuff.

A good greatest hits album for Cowboy Junkies but really not the best representation of the groups' early career. All their top hits are here to be sure but there are songs on this album that doesn't fit the catagory of "Best Of". They're not bad songs just not really worthy of being included among their best work. Plus there are a couple of legitamate hit songs by CJ ("Powderfinger" and "A Horse In The Country") that are not included on this CD. Why? Also from what I have heard and what has been mentioned in a couple of other reviews this is an album that was made without the blessing or contribution from Cowboy Junkies. Having said that I recommend if you want or need a greatest hits album by Cowboy Junkies your better bet is to buy "Studio". In my opinion it's just a better album that is much more complete in keeping with the idea of what is the "Best OF" CJ.
