Jonathan:Raylene comes from a really musical family who recorded under the name' The Rankin Family' for a couple of decades. Check them out the next time your in the mood for some good Gaelic music.Her brother Jimmy, also a serious musician with several records under his belt. They both come from a breath-takingly beautiful part of Martime Canada: Cape Breton.As for Bruce Cockburn, we used to live in the same neighburhood here in Montreal which will always be first and foremost the city of Leonard the Cohen.
Hi, David. Yes, I know the Rankins, although I actually prefer the work Raylene has done with other people and on her own. Some of the Rankin Family stuff was a little too pop for me. I would really love to go the Red Shoe pub in Mabou, which the sisters own. I bet the craic is really good.
Beautiful. It's been awhile since I've purchased some new music. Amazon made it easy to get into iTunes, so I could get it, and have it go through your affiliate! Susan
Not bad, although I'm probably still too taken with the original to be able to really appreciate Raylene's version.
