I’m back with three more on the 10 Album Challenge. Today’s albums are:
– Joni Mitchell, Blue
– Cowboy Junkies, The Trinity Session
– Oscar Peterson, Night Train
These are great albums by artists in their prime. All Canucks to boot. When I was a kid that was an important thing to us. We lived next to a behemoth and were swamped in their culture. We felt ownership when one of us made it south of the border or got noticed by the rest of the world.
All three of these artists did that. Their music stands the test of time. And no one made a keyboard smoke like Oscar Peterson.
That’s seven. Three to go.
