On their sophomore effort, Canada's Cowboy Junkies manage to make a one-day recording session in an old church one of their most satisfying listens. Featuring the sultry voice of Margo Timmins, the precise musicianship of her brothers Peter (on drums) and Michael (on guitar), and bassist Alan Anton, The Trinity Sessions is a spare, evocative, countrified-rock classic. Their inspired reworking of both "Blue Moon" and "Working On A Building" reveal the Timmins family to be talented interpreters and insightful neo-traditionalists. Mixing the ambitious songwriting of Margo and Michael Timmins with subdued covers of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane" and Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," The Trinity Sessions is an exquisite collection that holds up quite well under repeated listenings. --Mitch Myers

One of the most amazing albums ever

"Sometimes time, space and people all converge to create something truly amazing. The Cowboy Junkies Trinity Sessions album is one of those.
"Heavenly wine and roses, seem to whisper to me, when you call, when you call"
Sure, Lou Reed wrote it. But nobody performs "Sweet Jane" better, ever has, or ever will."
