The perfect fusion of Blue and Rodeo

"Recorded in an old movie theatre, and you feel like you're there in the seats, with a real rock-n-roll band up on stage. There's nothing fancy, just Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor singing harmonies to their chiming guitars, Bobby Wiseman's off-kilter piano and organ, and straight-ahead rhythm from Bazil Donovan on bass and Cleave Anderson on drums. Producer Malcolm Burn does what few producers do: brings out great performances and then stays out of the way. Blue Rodeo has made more sophisticated albums since, but not a better one."
