Early 21st Century Blues songs Product Information
Early 21st Century Blues album for sale by Cowboy Junkies was released Aug 02, 2005 on the Cooking Vinyl label. A blatant statement about the U.S. war in Iraq, EARLY 21ST CENTURY BLUES finds Canada's Cowboy Junkies playing to the strengths that have served them well since the days of their classic TRINITY SESSIONS, by dealing mainly in interpretations of outside material. Here they tackle a load of tunes that might seem unlikely out of context: two latter-day Springsteen songs, an early George Harrison solo cut, a couple of traditional numbers, and even a take on U2's "One." Early 21st Century Blues CD music contains a single disc with 11 songs. ...See Full Description

||Another Great CD|
Early 21st Century Blues songs Cowboy Junkies latest CD offering is another great hit. The group has been together for 20 years now and they prove their sound and creativity is still fresh. Interestingly only two of the songs in this album is written by Michael Timmins. All the rest of the songs are by other artists including songs by Bruce Springsteen, U2, George Harrison and John Lennon. By far I feel the most interesting of all the songs is their updated take of the John Lennon song "I Don't Want To Be A soldier" When John wrote this song it was in protest to the Vietman War. the Junkies update the song with some new lyrics to protest the war in Iraq. Then sing the new lyrics in a Rap sound that is so different from what the Junkies have done before that takes you by surprise. And it totally works! A great addition to any music lovers collection.
