Just like "Hunted", which we looked at in an earlier podcast, "The Slide' is a song that Cowboy Junkies have taken two studio bites at, initially on "One Soul Now" and then again on the box set "Notes Falling Slow".
With the help of Michael Timmins and Alan Anton, plus some rare recordings of the song from the "Anatomy Of An album" CD ROM, we chart its development and discover just why it is that the band felt the need to cut a fresh version of it.
More than that, we look into the sentiment behind the song and rehash an old Woody Allen joke in the process. That's "Music Is The Drug", all human life is here...
