Favourite Cover Versions...Part 6
I have previously written of my thoughts here on the exquisite Trinity Sessions album from Toronto's finest The Cowboy Junkies. One of the many great things about that album was the covers they chose to do, which were as good as or in some cases surpassed the originals. This penchant for covering classics continued with the follow up album, The Caution Horses. Once again the music was beautiful and haunting whilst Margo Timmins vocals are as vulnerable and lovely as you would expect.
The cover on the album of Neil Young's Powderfinger is probably the only cover of one of his tracks that I have heard that is better than the original.
