The Sadies- In Concert, Volume One


To round out my mini-tribute to Toronto is a live recording from Toronto-based band, The Sadies. Their music combines garage rock, traditional country and surf rock, and they have collaborated for albums with Andre Williams, Jon Langford and Neko Case. They backed up Neko on tour and for the release of her the excellent live album, The Tigers Have Spoken and they seem to be to go-to back-up band for others including Greg Keeler from Blue Rodeo.

The Sadies recorded their own double live album over a two-night stand at Lee's Palace in Toronto and proved they are as good on vinyl as they are live. For this concert, the band shares the stage with many of those collaborators as well as other guest appearances which makes this show seem like their version of the Last Waltz. Guests include, Kelly Hogan, Jon Spencer, Garth Hudson, Gary Louris, members of Blue Rodeo and of course, Jon Langford and Neko Case. The album is a little long and sprawling at times, but it's a nice sampling of the range of sound The Sadies possess. The guest appearances are a treat, but at times it pushes the Sadies back into the back-up role when it should be their time to shine. Overall, a great tribute to the band, amazing performances and a mighty fine listen!
Enjoy!
