I could have (and would have) sworn this album was called The Trinity Sessions, plural, but I would have been wrong: it’s singular. (The session was recorded at the Church of the Holy Trinity in Toronto).

Fair, since it truly is a singular (in the sense of unique / one of a kind) album. It wasn’t technically their debut – Whites Off Earth Now came out in ’86 – but it was certainly their breakout.

My copy has a hype sticker quoting Lou Reed: “The best & most authentic version of Sweet Jane that I have ever heard.”

It also had great versions of “So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Mining for Gold,” and “Walking After Midnight” that made traditionals and early country cool in 1988.
