    Over twenty years ago the Cowboy Junkies recorded this work in the Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto, Canada, taking advantage of the wonderful accoustics of that building.
    Using only a few mikes they recorded every song in a single take. In a time of over-produced, multi-tracked music this return to older techniques was refreshing.
    Margo Timmins vocals are soulful and haunting. (I swear she is the reincarnation of Patsy Cline.) Her cover of "Walking After Midnight" perfectly catches the wistful longing of that song. The re-working of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane" transforms that song from a rocker to a ballad. (This song in video form caused a bit of a buzz on MTV when it debuted). Micheal Timmins shows his song-writing skills cuts like "200 More Miles" and "Misguided Angel", and plays excellent guitar. Peter Timmins on drums and Alan Anton on bass provide a solid bottom to the sound. (The Timmins are siblings by the way.)
    The Trinity Session is a superb work. It has stood the test of time, being as fresh as when first released. I urge any fans of pure, honest music to give it a listen.
