Welcome back for the second series of "Music Is The Drug", the Cowboy Junkies podcast.
According to Michael Timmins, "Good Friday" is one of those songs that "just descended" on him, written very quickly on a day when, for a brief moment, the world was suddenly connected and everything made sense.
That feeling is crystallised in a song that has a special sparkle to it, a real joyousness. But it wouldn't Break Cowboy Junkies if it wasn't undercut by something more questioning, in this case in the form of Mike's guitar solo which we also discuss in the podcast.
Alan Anton guides us through the recording of the song and its parent album, working with legendary producer John Leckie and spending weeks in the hallowed halls of Abbey Road, chasing the ghosts of Beatles past...
