180 Gram Vinyl Record



180 Gram LP  



Recorded by Peter Moore on June 28, 1986 using a Calrec Ambisonic Microphone, the Cowboy Junkies debut reveals the band's innovative sense of interpretation, deep, dark ethereal soundscapes, and a brooding, hypnotic, laconic musical style uniquely their own. Featuring classic blues repertoire written by the legendary likes of John Lee Hooker and Robert Johnson, Whites Off Earth Now also features a raw, eerie version of Bruce Springsteen's "State Trooper." This evocative sonic alchemy succeeds due to Margo Timmins' languid, haunting vocals, Michael Timmins' sparse, yet soul piercing guitar, Alan Anton's evocative, gently loping bass and Alan Aton and Peter Timmins' tastefully, understated percussion embellishments. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of this landmark recording, MFSL is releasing Whites Off Earth Now for the first time on 180-gram vinyl using the acclaimed GAIN 2 remastering.

A Knockout Debut.

Great pressing, excellent liner notes, killer sound. When I got this a few weeks ago I could never have imagined how much I woud enjoy it. Margo's voice will send shivers up your spine; Mike's guitar alternately soothes and slashes; Alan's bass channels otherworldly subtexts and shadows, and Pete's drumming ebbs and flows underneath it all.

This was recorded in a garage? That must be one magical carport!

I'd give it six stars out of five. Buy two and give one away.
