If you haven’t been paying attention then you probably haven’t noticed the treasure trove of recordings, exclusive to our site, stored in the EXCLUSIVES section. My favourite area of this important corner of our world is Cookie Crumbs (volumes 1 thru 10). These collections of live songs are curated by Cookie Bob who is a passionate taper of live music and someone who has attended close to 200 Cowboy Junkies performance: he has an excellent ear for the passion and nuance of a good live performance and each time we travel through the North East he generously provides us with a tin of the tastiest ginger snap cookies EVER made. We just posted Volume 10 (Underdogs) of his series. It’s a collection of songs, reaching back 25 years, that briefly made their way in to our repertoire and have either disappeared forever from our set or are rarely played.From my point of view it’s a gas to listen to, to hear the different musicians doing their thing, to hear Margo’s voice and style getting deeper and more intense. Take a listen for free, “share” the player around and, if you have eight bucks to spare, buy a copy….we fully appreciate and rely on your patronage.
