To mark the release of Cowboy Junkies' new album, "Songs of the Recollection", we've put together a two part special about the record.
In this episode, we're covering the thinking behind the album and then the songs that go to make up the first side, for those of us till thinking in terms of vinyl. With the ever present help of Michael Timmins and Alan Anton, we'll be covering the second side, and plenty more besides, in our next episode.
But in this first part, we'll be uncovering the thinking behind the covers, how the album was put together in a time of pandemic and why these particular songs were selected.
For those with their scorecards handy, the songs we're checking off today are Five Years (David Bowie), Ooh Las Vegas (Gram Parsons), No Expectations (Rolling Stones), Don't Let It Bring You Down and Love In Mind (Neil Young).
