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 ...

3.0 out of 5 stars It's alright... I suppose June 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy on principle September 26, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars SUPPORT CJ'S: DO NOT BUY THIS CD September 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Music, Bad Karma September 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Starter For New Junkies Fans March 15, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy another Cowboy Junkies CD September 18, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this product December 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The record company released this CD against the band's wishes. There are *plenty* of excellent Cowboy Junky (Lay It Down, Pale Sun / Crescent Moon, Open, Trinity Session, etc.!) CD's to choose from... stay away from BMG's two "Greatest Hits" packages and pick a more current release instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Cowboy Junkies
I have listened to their CDs but wanted the music so I could play it on my MiniIPAD, IPOD and IPHONE 5. I love their music. This album didn't disappoint me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can all their songs be Greatest Hits?
I think I have most of their albums. I think all their music is a fusions of country, folk, blues, and rock. This is a good album to start with and has some of their great songs. Read more

Cowboy Junkies have an eerily, calming influence that is unique to say the least. Loved Lou Reed's version of "Sweet Jane" but; the CJ's radio version made me buy the CD. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection
This is a great collection of their songs. I don't own any other of their discs, so this one had a lot of their work that I liked on one disc.
