The Tragically Hip

During the last days I listened a few times to 'Road Apples', the first full length album by The Tragically Hip, a band that is big in Canada since more than 20 years but seldom known outside their native country. I don't know the reason why because they have everything a classic rock band should have. Good songs and arrangements, heavy leading guitar and a dry bass. I wouldn't know this band if the owner of my local record store wouldn't have recommended The Hip to me. And it is simply fun to listen to their output after years gone by.

Some great music from the Tragically Hip, Walter. I can't download anything! Out of bandwidth?

I was lucky enough to see The Tragically Hip several times on their visits to the UK in the 1990's. They made some very fine records, but onstage it was a whole different ballgame - they were a terrific live band. They probably still are, I'm way out of touch now. The last album I got was 2000's 'Music @ Work'. Interestingly, I used to recommend The Hip to all and sundry from behind the counter of my own little record shop too - spread the word!
Great to hear these tunes again Walter, thanks for putting them up.
