As a Cowboy Junkies fan, I could not limit myself to just six. But "Studio, 1986-1995" is a Greatest Hits album of sorts, and MANY of there best songs are on there. Good Luck. Craig
I've always liked their version of "Blue Moon".
Their cover of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane" from the Trinity Sessions sounds great as a song and acoustically.
I like most of the Caution Horses, esp. song #1 and 2 Sun comes up .../ Because it's cheap how I feel. Also from the live double CD 200 more miles song #5 in disc 2: Lost my driving wheel. From Lay it down A common disaster, Lonely sinking feeling and Now I know. Pessimism rules!
Most people don't realize that their cover of "Sweet Jane" on "The Trinity Sessions", though good, is a note-for-note copy of the Velvet's version off of "Live with Lou Reed: Volume 1". So, an interesting and novel interpretation of the more familiar studio version found on "Loaded"? I think not. Much better, and much more original off of the same album is my fave, "To Love Is To Bury".
Has anyone heard the Trinity Sessions Revisited.
Ryan Adams, Natalie Merchant and Vic Chestnut help the Junkies out and it is outstanding.
Ryan Adams kills on 200 More Miles and Natalie's vocal on To Love Is To Bury is haunting.

How nice, Pefstratiou: the first three I'd have mentioned.

Adding the obvious "Horse in the Country," from Brown-Eyed Man, the less obvious live "Hollow as a Bone," from Waltz Across America, and the still less obvious "Leaving Normal," from B-sides. And a seventh for good measure: "Final Feet," from Acoustic Junk.

Probably have more hours listening to CJ than with any other band, though they've not been "in heavy rotation" lately.

Just listened to TS Revisited tonight. Outstanding!
John, good picks...but you mean Black Eyed Man, right?
I like their cover of Springsteen's "Thunder Road" (from 'Neath Your Covers).
How about their newest hit single

"Smokin Pot and Movin Slow"

or the B side

"Keep the Beat Slow and Steady"
Yikes! I did mean "Black-Eyed Man," Muncybob.

Sweet Jane. Missing.
Long term CJ fan here, just playing Sing in my meadow, latest release in the Nomad series, ruthless down and dirty, this is the all too rare side of the junkies that i really dig. I'll add a top six soon..
