Cowboy Junkies : The Nomad Series Box Set

In 2011 the Cowboy Junkies embarked on their most ambitious project yet, to write and record 4 albums in 18 months. It was called The Nomad Series. Each album had its own individual style and feel. The first instalment, ‘Renmin Park’ was influenced by Michael Timmins’ trip to China with his family. Volume 2, ‘Demons’ was an album of Vic Chesnutt cover versions and a tribute to their late friend. ‘Sing In My Meadow’ was a louder, more guitar heavy album and the fourth and last in the series, ‘The Wilderness’ was a group of songs that the band had written and had been playing live throughout this process and it was released in March.

Once the project was finished, the band realised they had songs that haven’t quite made the four albums that were too good to keep hidden. This 5th LP ‘Extras’ consists of ten songs that will constitute a full album in the same embossed outer sleeve and printed inner that Volumes 1 to 4 have come in.

The box will be completed by a live 4 track bonus 12” that includes live tracks from ‘At The End Of Paths Taken’, songs that aren’t on the CD box set. There is also a 12” x 12” booklet compiled by the band.

All of these come housed in a box with lift off lid so that the complete series can be kept together as a whole.
