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 ...

1.0 out of 5 stars poorly-done compilation December 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
RCA/BMG have released the third best-of compilation in seven years. Like one of the previous efforts, this compilation was done without the knowledge of the band and without their blessing. The band, via their website, has asked their fans not to purchase it.
Even if yu don't consider the band's wishes, there really is no reason to purchase this album. As a collection of Cowboy Junkies tunes, it misses the mark completely. It has a mere 12 tracks, and doesn't include many of their best-known and best-loved songs.
If you are looking for a compilation by this band, look for the album named "Studio". It is a much better retrospective of their career (to that point), and is the one compilation that is actually sanctioned by the band.
Other albums in the band's catalog will also serve as an introduction. Most fans consider their second album, "The Trinity Session", to be their quintessential release. My favourite album is "Black-Eyed Man", which includes their inspired cover of Townes Van Zandt's "To Live is to Fly". I rarely recommend live albums, but the two-disc "200 More Miles" is also an excellent introduction to a band that spends a lot of time on the road, has an excellent relationship with their fans, and always puts on a fine performance.
I give this album one star, and would give it zero if that were an option. This isn't a reflection on the music on the album: it is all top-notch. My rating is a reflection of a poorly-done compilation by a record label that should know better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but the best of? November 18, 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
This is actually the third collection of theirs, and I think the second one they had nothing to do with. This does have great songs like "Sweet Jane", "Murder Tonight In The Trailer Park", and "Powderfinger", which is a "Neil Young" song. But at only 12 tracks, it's just missing too much. Specifically "Sun Comes Up, It's Tuesday Morning", "Cowboy Junkies Lament", and "A Common Disaster". What's on here is all good, but I would go with the "Best of", or "Studio 1986-1995" instead. Or you could always just get "The Trinity Session" or "Black Eyed Man", their two best albums.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unauthorized Release December 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Cowboy Junkies, on their own official website, mention that they objected to the release of this album and urge their fans not to purchase it. I have not heard it, so I can't comment on the quality of songs presented here, but, like the reviewer before, would urge those new to the Cowboy Junkies to start with The Trinity Sessions or (my other favorite) Pale Sun Crescent Moon--or anything else, since they're all good. The one star is not a reflection of the band or this album--only that THEY don't recommend it.
