Blue Rodeo – Palace Of Gold

Here’s another one I found for $1 in She Said Boom! on our trip. I know, right? Yup, it was seriously $1, and in perfect shape. Unreal.

The Racy Lacy Anniversary Series, Part 14 (CD, $1)

Blue Rodeo knocks out an incredible record, here. Every song is fully realized, and detailed perfectly. The soul groove’s gorgeous, and they sound playful and invigorated.

Add the Planet Soul Strings, the Bushwhack Horns (more trumpets!), and BR-newbie Bob Egan on guitar, and you’ve got a record that absolutely nails it.

Even with all these additions, they still sound like the Blue Rodeo we all know, love and admire. After all these years, we’re reminded of this band’s vitality.

Perfection.

    This is one of my favourite Blue Rodeo albums. I feel that it hits a sad in the middle, but by and large this is one hell of a strong effort. I saw them live as they were starting to use the horns. It was pretty amazing.

      I read some reviews saying it was their best since Five Days In May! I dunno, I try not to compare, but it sure is one helluva strong effort indeed, well said.

      Seeing them live with those horns would be AWESOME! I always cheer for the horns!

      Haha no coffee bar. They mostly sell regularly-priced used items (and many, many good ones at that!). But they do have a couple of bins of discount items. If you don’t care about a wee scratch here or there, most items in there are for you! However, once in a while (like on this trip), some items get in there in pristine shape (like the 4 I found this trip!). Maybe they were out at a higher price for a long while and didn’t sell, so bargain bin it is. I don’t know. But I was thrilled to find them!
