Antarctica -- all instrumental -- holds up really well. Unsurprisingly.

I am enjoying part 2 of this special on Ian Tamblyn's amazing body of work! I will definitely listen to it again on CKCU On Demand.

Great show! Proceeds from the Angels share concerts will go to Mill Road community Space and the Chelsea Housing Corporation, which is building 12 affordable housing units for seniors in Farm Point. Amanda

Philip Glass, Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois... and now I discover another side of the legendary Ian Tamblyn - true artist and local pride - beautiful! Wish the CBC would return to less pop, more true local talent such as Ian's

< So... how can we make Ian blush even more?... >

I'm absolutely entranced listening to Ian's beautifully crafted work. It's so nice, to, to hear the stories behind the songs. Thank you so much, Chris and Ian, for this wonderful celebration of Ian's work.

Great anecdote about Sneezy Waters & Tom Waits!

11:43 AM, December 7th, 2019
Geez, the sound is (no insult) a little Barenaked Ladies, on Raven & the Clam.

11:53 AM, December 7th, 2019
Your voice, Ian, ranges broadly, and can take many different colourings once recorded, etc. Fun. Versatile.

11:54 AM, December 7th, 2019
Would this become albums no. 45 and 46? In some way recorded for posterity? Amazing background to songs; admitting I hadn't noticed that Tiger Lily Road was about Quebec...
