cowboy-junkies-the-trinity-session
In a post from a couple of years back about gigs at The Albert Hall, I posted about Cowboy Junkies...

My abiding memory of this gig was the "new" percussionist getting an onstage telling off for making a noise between songs which made me sneer at the precious-ness of the band. I’d loved The Trinity Sessions and quite enjoyed The Caution Horses but my Cowboy Junkies thing pretty much ended there - or maybe, more specifically ended at the point at which Margo turned and stared at the new boy and apologised for him.


When it was released I was quite taken with The Trinity Session but listening now it is often just a great big old yawn, maybe I've heard too much beuatiful music played and/or recorded in churches to realise that it's more than just the church-y ambience that makes it great. Maybe I've just got harsher, or harder to please.

I sort of hoped that the album would hint at why I loved it as much as I did, but I just can't figure it out. Maybe it was just the VU cover after all...
