Serendipity is a wonderful thing (as is the film) here I sat rediscovering The Beatles “A Hard Day’s Night” and realising that despite it being just short of a film soundtrack album it is now close to being my favourite Beatles album when I received notification that one of my favourite singers, Margo Timmins from the brilliant Cowboy Junkies has released an intimate collection of solo cover versions of some of her favourite songs for download via the band’s web page one of which being a favourite track from the aforesaid Beatles album.

Recorded in Jeff Bird’s home studio Ty Tyrfu in allegedly one afternoon the album is called “Margo’s Corner – Ty Tyrfu Sessions,
Volume 1” and can be purchased as a download from HERE

Margo's Corner

Ty Tyrfu Sessions, Volume 1 – Margo Timmins
Released June 24, 2009

1. I’d Have You Anytime (George Harrison)
2. Father & Son (Cat Stevens)
3. If I Should Fall Behind (Bruce Springsteen)
4. Dance Me To The End of Love (Leonard Cohen)
5. Tomorrow Is A Long Time (Bob Dylan)
6. One Day I Walk (Bruce Cockburn)
7. Things We Said Today (Lennon/McCartney)
8. Girl From The North Country (Bob Dylan)
9. Walkin’ On a Wire (Richard Thompson)
10. Side Of the Road (Lucinda Williams)

Here is her take on one of the best tracks from “A Hard Day’s Night” as her version of  “Things We Said Today” is almost two minutes longer than the original you can expect a slower tempo than the original.

As a bonus from the same album here is her take on the Cat Stevens classic “Father and Son”

  1. Sheer brilliance – unfortunately I don’t expect her to try this when she’s in town – Berlin that is
