Blue Rodeo Outskirts

dizzygaz

One of Canada's treasures. This music stills holds up as a unique sound no other artists have come near to. Even travelling, hearing this album reminds me of home.

So good

"Try" What a song! I've listened to it some many times and still find it as beautiful as the first time. Always loved it, Always will.

From the beginning

delphine

"Blue Rodeo" was the banner outside the bar at Historic Properties, Halifax, NS. It suggested blues and country. I thought I'd give it a try. The band had just started up - it was their first gig in the Maritimes. I was hooked. Bought the album immediately. Moved to South Africa - lost track until tonight when I discovered reference to them after searching for the Travelling Wilburys (not available on emusic!) Am thrilled. My favourite Canadian band after The Heartbeats of Halifax.

I just want to add a plug for Heart Like Mine, which was the song that really turned me on to Blue Rodeo, way back when. When you sample it, be sure to give it the full 30 seconds, as the sample includes the mellow, almost acapella opening, and then only a few seconds of the full band kicking in with the real rocking sounds that are the meat of the full song.

Best Ballads

MelodyMan

Great to see more Blue Rodeo on Emusic; no band does better ballads. "Try" is the song that first caught me--it shows off Cuddy's voice, as do several others here, such as Floating and Underground. See also Palace of Gold Album.

5 & 6

Smokin'

Tracks 5 & 6 are key Blue Rodeo tunes; I highly recommend both.

They Say All Music Guide

Outskirts is a highly likeable debut featuring mid-tempo country rockers fleshed out by tasteful use of organ in the arrangements — a subtle touch that, along with the sheer quality of the material, distinguished Blue Rodeo from the hordes of other Gram Parsons devotees in the mid-’80s. – Chris Woodstra
