Description

A Double Disk Album of 22 songs by William Hawkins: The songs of an accomplished poet, performed by some of Canada's best known singer-songwriters with all new previously unreleased recording. The lineup brings together two generations of Canada's best folk, blues, jazz and country artists: Bruce Cockburn, Sandy Crawley, Kellylee Evans, Mike Evin, Terry Gillespie, Murray McLauchlan, Lynn Miles, Ana Miura, Bill Stevenson, Ian Tamblyn, Brent Titcomb, Suzie Vinnick, Sneezy Waters, and Neville Wells, backed by a diverse group of fine instrumentalists. Songs of love and lust, loss and longing, tragedy and heartbreak. Tender and haunting songs, like "Scorpio" and "Gnostic Serenade." Goofy and raunchy songs, like "Christopher's Movie Matinee" and "Frankly Stoned." Songs with a wicked humor and a rare emotional honesty. Like fellow Canadian poetsongwriter Leonard Cohen, Bill Hawkins understands pain yet knows how to laugh at himself. This two-CD set mobilizes a wealth of musical talent to interpret Hawkins' music.
