31. Blue Moon Revisited (Song For Elvis)

Cowboy Junkies: Music Is The Drug - The Podcast

Sep 17 2022 • 14 mins

In this episode, we’re going back nearly 35 years, to a song from “The Trinity Session”, the album that put Cowboy Junkies on the international map. One of the biggest songs from that album was “Blue Moon Revisited (Song For Elvis)” which was released as a single and was a heavy rotation video on MTV back in the day.

We'll hear from Michael Timmins and Alan Anton how it was that the song missed the cut on the original Latent vinyl release of "The Trinity Session", how that unforgettable bass line came into being, why Margo Timmins laid down her lyric pen in the early '90s and just what they made of Graceland when they visited it in the late 1980s...
