Editorial Reviews

Spend a year on the open road with the Cowboy Junkies. From a lavish multi-camera shoot of the band in concert at an outdoor festival before thousands of fans, to the hushed intimacy of a duo performance from Margo and Mike Timmins that recalls the haunting beauty of The Trinity Sessions, Open Road depicts a year in the life of this unique band. With 3 hours of DVD footage and a bonus live audio CD, Open Road stakes a claim as one of the most content-rich music DVDs available today. Tracks: Lay It Down (Quebec City), Hard to Explain (Quebec City), Bread and Wine (Quebec City), River Waltz (Quebec City), I'm So Open (the Temple), Bea's Song (Quebec City), Dragging Hooks (Quebec City), Blue Moon Revisited (Quebec City), Anniversary Song (Quebec City), Anniversary Song (the Temple), Sun Comes Up, It's Tuesday Morning (the Temple), Misguided Angel (the Temple), Small Swift Birds (the Temple), Thousand Year Prayer (the Temple), Hollow as a Bone (the Temple), Murder, Tonight in the Trailer Park (Live), Lay It Down (Live), This Street That Man This Life (Live), Thousand Year Prayer (Live), Bread and Wine (Live), Witches (Live), Something More Besides You (Live), Escape Is So Simple (Live), Dragging Hooks (Live), Anniversary Song (Live).

This DVD covers the tour in America and Europe, that the Cowboy Junkies made to promote their Open CD. So, this DVD and CD set (also recorded on the Open tour) is really the best present that any Cowboy Junkies aficionado could receive this year, especially if one happens to live in Europe and spend most of ones time in a country which the CBs haven't toured so far. The contents of the DVD are split into four separate programs: 1. Cowboy Junkies live from the Quebec city summer festival (by the time you get to the last song on this section, "anniversary song", you just want to go back and hear them all again); 2. a documentary in music, ones and zeros, which follows the CBs on the road in music, video and pics; 3. Margo Timmins and brother Michael live at the Temple; and, 4. an open conversation with Margo and Michael.
The sound and video quality are very good, the production is more than acceptably excellent and the songs, as always, are simply brilliant. Being a CB'holic myself I just love being able to see Margo singing those great CB songs, and the CBs, of course, are a joy to see in action, even if it is just on a big screen. If you are a CBs fan I could not recommend this DVD more highly.
The accompanying CD is grand too, and contains some of the new CB classics, as well as a couple of tracks I hadn't heard until I got this DVD/CD set. Those new tracks (for me) are Witches and Escape is so simple. Another truly wonderful CD.
Best regards
Martyn

I noticed in the 3 reviews for this DVD none noted THE one flaw. The disc is not encoded in 5.1digital surround sound. If you don't know what this means don't worry about it. That's the only flaw, everything else is perfect and Amazon.com should do more to say "is in 5.1 surround" or "is not in 5.1 surround sound" That's my bone I'm picking, thanks for reading.

Format: DVD
This DVD/CD set chronicles the Cowboy Junkies' 2001 "Open Road" tour, in support of their album "Open". The DVD has four segments: a picture slideshow of sorts, a plugged-in performance in Quebec, an acoustic performance in Toronto, and an interview segment. The CD has a few live tracks recorded on the tour.

The first segment of the DVD is the picture slideshow. It is instantly forgettable. If you simply put it in for background music, it's fine (after all, the songs are all live from the tour), but there is really no reason to pay attention to the video. It's like watching someone's vacation pictures set to music. It's not bad, really, but it's not something that needs to be watched again.

The second segment of the DVD is the performace of the full band in Quebec City. One of the best parts of this segment is the inclusion of the complete River Trilogy: the lilting "River Waltz", the sad "Bea's Song" (this is one of my favourite songs, and this version is perfect), and the haunting "Dragging Hooks".

The third segment of the DVD is an acoustic performance, featuring just Michael Timmins and Margo Timmins. This gives us a view into another side of the Cowboy Junkies, and one that is just as essential as with the full band. Here, the music is stripped back to the bare bones: Michael on an acoustic guitar, and Margo singing the always-insightful lyrics. They included "Thousand-Year Prayer" on this segment as well as the previous plugged-in segment, which gives us two different perspectives on that song.

The interview segment with Margo and Michael is interesting enough, although I'm not sure that it is the sort of thing that would stand up to repeating watchings.

I would like to add to the other reviews that while allof this is great, the highlight which stands out for me is the chance to see the River Trilogy performed all together in sequence. A truly chilling experience as the romance/life goes from its early heights to its final depths. Having seen the Junkies live I can confirm that they are even better live than on record - this DVD isn't quite like being there, but it is the second best thing.

The power of comunication these days gives us the chance to see,listen and share performances like these.
A perfect DVD/CD set of pure Cowboy Junkies sensitivity.
