    The Trinity Session

    Recorded Originally At 44.1kHz/16-Bit


    Remastered By Original Recording Engineer Peter Moore And Cowboy Junkies


    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    Lacquers Cut By Ryan K. Smith At Sterling Sound


    Expanded Gatefold Edition With Additional Photos, New Cover Design As The Musicians/artist Intended


    New Liner Notes Written By Author And Music Editor Jason Schneider


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    Cowboy Junkies recorded this spectacular LP as a live event Nov. 27, 1987 at the Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto. It was recorded with a digital R-Dat and using only a Calrec Ambisonic Microphone. What this means is the record sounds like the band was playing right in front of you with the perfect ambiance.


    Yes, this is a digital recording. True to our company principles, Analogue Productions in almost all cases reissues recordings only where the analog master tape is available. However, there are rare exceptions that whether digitally recorded or otherwise, a recording is so outstanding it's worthy of the highest quality vinyl reissue.


    Featuring the sultry voice of Margo Timmins, the precise musicianship of her brothers Peter (on drums) and Michael (on guitar), and bassist Alan Anton, The Trinity Session is a spare, evocative, countrified-rock classic. First released in late 1988, The Trinity Session was named Album of the Year by The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times described it as a quiet, special record that challenges traditional music. Rolling Stone declared the album to be as important as it its inspiring.


    Today, it remains much more than a snapshot of a single day's work captured on tape. So for this deluxe Analogue Productions reissue, we pulled out all the stops. Starting with new mastering from the original session digital tapes by the original recording engineer, Peter Moore. And lacquer cutting by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound. The church where the album was recorded was selected on the basis of work Moore had done there with other jazz and classical artists. Using a single Calrec Ambisonic microphone, the results are stunning.


    Next, we kicked up the packaging and content several notches. You're holding a heavyweight old-style tip-on Stoughton Printing jacket, and it has brand-new liner notes by author and music editor Jason Schneider. Schneider is the author of Whispering Pines: the Northern Roots of American Music from Hank Snow to The Band. He's also the roots music editor at Exclaim! and his work has been published in Paste, The Word, The Toronto Star and other publications. The liner notes share space with additional recording session photos, inside and on the back cover. Additionally, the cover has been redesigned to remove the lettering and photo distortion originally applied and make it appear as the musicians/artist originally intended. Lastly, this sonic treasure has been pressed on 200g vinyl at Quality Record Pressings, maker of the world's finest LPs, with stampers plated by master plating technician Gary Salstrom.


    The inspired reworking of both Blue Moon and Working On A Building reveal the Timmins family to be talented interpreters and insightful neo-traditionalists. Mixing the ambitious songwriting of Margo and Michael Timmins with subdued covers of Lou Reed's Sweet Jane and Hank Williams' I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, The Trinity Session is an exquisite collection that holds up quite well under repeated listenings.

    Renmin Park

    With the release of Renmin Park, Cowboy Junkies are beginning their most ambitious period yet. In late 2008, Michael Timmins and his family were given an opportunity to spend three months in China. Renmin Park is a reflection of his familys adventure in the country. Its another chapter in a bands ongoing twenty-five year journey. Renmin Park (translated, it means Peoples Park, as found in every Chinese town) is a celebration of the sights, sounds, and characters of Jingjiang, a small town (by Chinese standards) situated on the Yangtze River, about two hours from Shanghai. Several of the tracks were actually built on loops made from field recordings Michael made in China where he recorded a myriad of sounds from music and conversations to badminton games to students chanting their lessons or performing their morning callisthenics. The album also includes covers of songs by two of the countrys most important rock artists I Cannot Sit Sadly By Your Side by Zuoxiao Zuzhou (ZXZZ) and Xu Weis My Fall. Renmin Park a fictional love story about two people whose two worlds will forever keep them apart, says the guitarist. Its a thank-you letter to an obscure city and the people who opened up their lives to five very strange strangers. Its a document about a bewilderingly complex culture that is, once again, experiencing a massive upheaval. Michael Timmins

    David Wiffen (On Sale)

    Canadian singer/song writer David Wiffen's 1971 self titled album, originally released on Fantasy Records, is now being reissued by 4 Men With Beards. The album is a showcase for David's rich baritone voice and his world weary, laid back songs. Standout tracks include the classic "Driving Wheel" covered by Tom Rush, The Byrds, The Jayhawks, Roger McGuinn and The Cowboy Junkies among many others, plus the openly confessional "More Often Than Not" and "I've Got A Ticket". A underground folk/chamber pop classic reissued on 180 gram vinyl.

    Grace & Lies

    On the surface, the two concepts Grace and Lies couldn't seem more different. One of them restores, the other ruins. One of them forgives, the other deceives. But to hear Kim Krans, frontwoman for Family Band, tell it, the two aren't opposed, they're intertwined. Grace and Lies are two characters I envisioned last summer, she says, by way of explaining the haunting title track on the group's second record. I couldn't get them out of my head. I saw them in a field behind our cabin, singing and slow dancing, like ghosts, sort of. They're the rulers of beauty and false promises. And we all fall for them from time to time."


    And therein lies the beautiful dichotomy of Family Band. A collaboration between visual-artist-turned-singer Kim Krans and her husband, onetime heavy-metal guitarist Jonny Ollsin (Children, S.T.R.E.E.T.S.), the merging of the couple's sensibilities makes for music that's simultaneously elegant and visceral. Their songs are as stark as bare trees in winter, Krans' baleful alto swooping mournfully over Ollsin's glimmering guitar like a black crow against a grey sky.


    As its title implies Grace & Lies is equal parts light and shadow, evoking the mystery and terror of early Cat Power, the ghostly aura of Warpaint, with whom Family Band toured in 2011, and the hushed longing of prime-era Cowboy Junkies. Though they explored similar territory, both sonically and lyrically, on their self-released debut, Miller Path, on Grace their canvas is wider, the greys lusher, the blacks deeper. Assisted by bass and lapsteel player Scott Hirsch (Hiss Golden Messenger), the couple has made a record that boldly confronts life's darker questions.


    Miller Path was recorded mostly at our cabin upstate, while Jonny was busy with his metal band and I was focused on my visual arts career, Krans explains. It was my first time recording music and I didn't know how to steer the wheel. I didn't even know what the wheel was. But with Grace & Lies, we all decided what the overarching atmosphere and mood of the record should be. I made big drawings of each song in the control room, with all the parts and changes illustrated, and we built those visions with sound.

    That meticulous planning is evident throughout. Night Song revolves around a single, dazzling guitar riff that spirals like stars in the night sky; Ride builds steadily to an ominous, spectacular finale, timpanis booming and guitars gathering like storm clouds in a clear sky; and Again, which boasts production and instrumental work by Dan Rossen of Grizzly Bear, surges forward, a roaring river beneath a sheet of ice. Grace & Lies is a document of a band staring down life's larger riddles: love, death, loss and deceit.
