Cowboy Junkies The Trinity Session 180g Import Vinyl 2LP
Cowboy Junkies recorded this spectacular LP as a "live" event on November 27, 1987 at the Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto, Canada. It was recorded with a digital R-Dat and using only a Calrec Ambisonic Microphone.
What this means is the record sounds like the band was playing right in front of you with the perfect ambiance. Yes, this is a digital recording, yet a recording this outstanding is more than worthy of the highest quality vinyl reissue.
Featuring the sublime vocals of Margo Timmins and the meticulous backing of her brothers Peter (drums) and Michael (guitar) plus Alan Anton (bass), The Trinity Session is an unequivocal, economic country-rock classic. First released in late 1988, The Trinity Session was named "Album of the Year" by The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times described it as "a quiet, special record that challenges traditional music."
Rolling Stone declared the album to be "as important as it its inspiring." Today, it remains much more than a snapshot of a single day's work captured on tape. The church where the album was recorded was selected on the basis of work recording engineer Peter Moore had done there with other jazz and classical artists. Using a single Calrec Ambisonic microphone, the results are stunning.
