It's 21 years ago this month that Cowboy Junkies released "Open", their first album after going independent again, so we thought we should celebrate it with an album special podcast this time around.
We're taking an overview of the album as a whole, looking at the thinking that went into leaving the major labels behind, the approach that they took to recording and the input that guest musicians Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist from Over The Rhine had on the album.
With the help of Michael Timmins and Alan Anton, we'll go through the whole "Open" experience, from start to finish.
