Cowboy Junkies name[edit]

Cowboy Junkies did not take their name from the Townes Van Zandt song; Van Zandt wrote the song especially for them several years after they coined the name. Bearcat 06:21, 9 August 2005 (UTC)

For extra confirmation, the first Townes Van Zandt album ever to include his own rendition of the song, No Deeper Blue, was released in 1994. So unless somebody would like to propose that Michael Timmins is psychic, the band's choice of name can't possibly have been influenced by a song that Van Zandt never recorded or released until ten years after the band chose their name.

Waltz Across America[edit]

Missing from the list of their live albums is "Waltz Across America". I'd be glad to add it, but I thought I'd post here first to see if there were any objections. Malachi292

Please feel free to add Waltz Across America. I think it's unlikely there would be any objections. Paul Erik (talk)(contribs) 18:43, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

The Nomad Series[edit]

Can someone add a paragraph about the Nomad series, Remnin Park, Deamons, Sing In My Meadow, and The Wilderness? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:39, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

The Sharon Temple Session[edit]

"The Sharon Temple Session" album added, it is a major album because it follows the groundbreaking album "The Trinity Session" and is similar in its recording style, tone and acoustics. It is a key part of their catalog, and represents a signifigant portion of their early work. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:48, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

The Sharon Temple Session album removed, because it is not a major album. The session work done at the Sharon Temple was the band's initial attempt to create the music that eventually became The Caution Horses, but after sitting on the music while touring, the Junkies rejected the work and re-recorded it in a studio. Eventually the band did release the initial recordings done at the Sharon Temple as a separate offering from their Latent Recordings website, for the fans, for download only. It is no longer available from their website. Therefore, The Sharon Temple Session cannot be called a major album, but a album for fans with a limited offering. Does not deserve an article, and does not deserve a listing on the band page. Not sure it deserves a place on the discography page, but if someone feels it does, won't argue with someone listing it there. Mburrell (talk) 23:36, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
