WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Although The Cowboy Junkies have released more than 18 albums in their 15 year career their most commercially successful and critically acclaimed by far was the breathy and emotional lament The Trinity Session, released in 1988. The Trinity Session was recorded in a single day, with a single microphone in the Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto. It includes covers of many old classic country and rock songs including "I'm So Lonesome I could Cry" by Hank Williams, "Sweet Jane" by the Velvet Underground (1969: The Velvet Underground Live version not Loaded version), "Walking After Midnight" by Patsy Cline and a new version of "Blue Moon", the old Elvis classic. The hauntingly sparse, acoustically spacious feel of The Trinity Session made it first a cult hit and eventually a modern day classic.
