Such a wonderful, melancholy set of songs (perfect for the slipping away of Summer)! September When It Comes, juxtaposing the voices of Rosanne and John Cash pretty much encapsulates it all. And I'd never before heard PP&M's lovely 75 Septembers (getting there). Thanks for the music.

Thanks Joanne.

Thanks Mike for so many beautiful songs to mark the change of seasons. And what a treat to hear that Bruce Murdoch song from so long ago. I saw Bruce several times at the Golem when I was a McGill student in the 70's.

Thanks Helen. Bruce was actually the first artist I invited to play at the Golem when I took it over in 1974.

My Bonny by Laura Smith is SUCH a version. Still amazing, after all these years.

Indeed it is, Benoît.

freezin' on canoe!;-) Laura still brings tears...
