    I swooned first time I heard Cowboy Junkies, I think on Letterman or something. Bought the album the next day, still have it.
    Here's another rendition, by my good buddy Ian Hunter of Mott the Hoople fame.

    Not their best iteration, but a hoot anyway, with Ronson and Bowie. Gotta go to the Mott album for the best rendition.
    Here's another version, with the Rant Band.

    The anniversary resurrection of the Trinity Sessions, btw, is (for the most part) a wonderful revisiting of the original. A few pesky niggles, like  Natalie Merchant jumping in on a number of tracks -- a voice almost as out of place as, say, Bob Dylan's would be.

    The audiophile pressing sounds great on vinyl.

    I can't say if Margot Timmins is a "misguided angel", but she's sure a smouldering angel on their slow numbers like Blue Moon.

    That was actually one of the first CDs I ever bought. Must get the vinyl now, of course.

    You're welcome to swing by for a listen, Dave. Do you have you're own bird these days, or are you ground-bound?

    I see there are a number of members within reasonable driving time from each other in the MT, ID, UT, AB and even west coast areas.
    Maybe we should try and arrange a 'meet' in the not too distant future, get together for a few days, listen to music, 'byo' (bring your own) vinyl's and even stereo/s and talk a lot of shite!.....not to mention a few drinks here and there....... drunken ....what say all of us.......and of course you mid western and east coasters are of course also welcome.......just a somewhat longer drive!!  Wink

    I've been dragging my heels on renewing my passport, but this gives me some motivation.

    This would be a great hoot to stage a regional "Basket case" meet up!

    I'll need to run this pass my boss first, but I'd be happy to host the first meet, we've got 50 acres, so those with RV's can camp no problems, we even have a RV dump!, the town of Ennis, about 16 miles from us, has a lot of motels as well.
    Lets keep this idea alive and see what goes.....

    I listen to classic rock and jazz probably 95% of the time. I could just never get into the more modern rock stuff in the last 20 years or so. Sometimes I will listen to more modern rock. One of my favorites in this newer rock time frame is Creep by Radiohead. This song came out in the early '90's and didn't get any play on USA radio because they used the "F-word" three times during the song. USA DJ's finally got after Radiohead to cut out the F-word and substitute the word "very" instead of "F-ing". They re-recorded the song and it became a big hit in the USA. After it became a big hit, Radiohead was sued (successfully) for plagerism by the Hollies whose song "The Air That I Breathe" has the same chord progression as Creep. See the Youtube video (with no F word) below .. This video has over 56,000,000 views on Youtube ...

    Why would I wanna watch a video if it didn't have the F-bomb word in it?
    All is secured on the homefront. The woody SP-13 and PH-16 are holding hands with the M-125s. Bob, I will send you and roy and troy some pictures when the light is right. Maybe you can post? I can't get my hands around the outboard picture thingie. I just refuse to learn. Mastering a smart-phone with cataracts was horrible enough for me.
    A big shout-out to Troy Madden and Roy Mottram for mastering the impossible, along of course to you for the 125s. I think this is as good as it gets.

    I hadnt heard that story, Bob.

    I have to say that to my ear, the Radio head and Hollies' songs arent half as close as Twist and Shout versus La Bamba.

    Did you see her Elvis cover? Better than the original, I think.  Wink

    Good blues; I prefer her rendition of "Ole Rocking Chair" and "It's Gonna Rain."

    Good stuff; saw her at the Paramount centuries ago.
    Her brother Jeff was actually the better "bluser" but never got the fame she did.

    I got a bad liver and a broken heart: Who but Tom Waits could pull off a tune like that?

    Thanks for all the great tunes.

    This one is good for when the wine bottle nears empty.

    The live mix is not as good as the album.

    Having trouble recognizing it as the same song. Hard for me to do without the intro too. Although it IS a sweeter version.

    Might be because of my deprived (depraved?) childhood; this is one of my favorite Rock songs of all time. I wonder what song they were playing in the video clip.
