Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Cowboy Junkies Live



In my tribute to Lou Reed last week following his passing, I featured him performing his composition "Sweet Jane." Above, a band influenced by Reed and The Velvet Underground, Cowboy Junkies, with Margo Timmins on vocals, played the song on the Tonight Show in 1989. I also recommend two moving tributes to Lou Reed that appeared in The New Yorker by Patti Smith and Luc Sante.

Cowboy Junkies, one fo the most appropriately named bands, considering the "feeling' of the music, had obviously studied '1969-Velvet Undergorund Live' before recording 'The Trinity Sessions'. This version is a rather faithful rendition of that particular performance by Lou Reed and his bandmates. BTW, 'The Trinity Sessions' album is a worthy investment for any music library.

Both "Trinity Sessions and "Trinity Revisited" are worthy.
