Cowboy Junkies fans........

I know a lot of Audiogon members are Cowboy Junkies fans so I thought I'd put out this notice. The Cowboy Junkies new CD "Waltz Across America" is out and is excellent. The recording is Live, very good, and has some great new songs-- although a couple are pretty far out for me. If you've got a decent system, you'll think Margo Timmins is in your listening room. Highly recommended. Cheers. Craig.

Thanks for the tip Garfish. I picked up on the "Junkies" from the "Best Female Vocals" thread and randomly picked up "Miles from Home" and "Lay it Down" cheap at the local flea market. Both of the CD's are a nice listen. I especially enjoy the electric guitarist who comes up with the "worst possible sound" for a song and it then ends up sounding right on the money in context/contrast. I also like live recordings and will look forward to hearing it.
The Junkie site is in Canadian Dollars. $14.00Canda = $9.66US if it makes a difference to anyone South of there.
Hi Garfish: The Junkies are my favorite new find in popular easy listening music. I suspect that many of the Junkies songs are through compositions. By this I mean that the song was pretty much basically conceived as a whole as apposed to being pieced together bit by bit. This usually makes for a more listenable and moving piece of music and is in my way a high compliment to pay a songwriter or band.
I ordered all of the CD's that I do not have from the Cowboy Junkies website a few days ago (only had two from their listing). Total cost was under $90.00US for the bunch as they list for under $10.00US each. Good deal Aye?
The "Wad'O" CD's arrived yesterday, six days after my order. I have not had time to listen to them all, but "Waltz" is my favorite so far. Great live recordings and stellar performances that really project the thoughts and feelings of the songs. It is going to be hard not to wear then out.
