Performer Notes
  • Blue Rodeo: Jim Cuddy (vocals, guitar, mandolin, harmonica); Greg Keelor (vocals, guitar); Kim Deschamps (pedal steel, lap steel, mandolin, banjo); James Gray (accordion, keyboards); Bazil Donovan (bass); Glenn Milchem (drums).
  • Additional personnel: Sarah McLachlan (vocals).
  • A near-total about-face from Blue Rodeo's previous record, 1992's comparatively raucous and electric LOST TOGETHER, 1995's FIVE DAYS IN JULY is the most acoustic, folkiest record of this Toronto quintet's long career. Recorded live in a barn on co-leader Greg Keelor's farm during the time frame specified in the album's title, this record is downright rustic.
  • The country-tinged tunes are nearly all acoustic, with pedal steel, mandolin, banjo, harmonica, and lots of accordion coloring Keelor and Jim Cuddy's songs. The highlight is Keelor's "What Is This Love," a soaring ballad duet with Sarah McLachlan that's among the loveliest Blue Rodeo songs ever. By all rights, FIVE DAYS IN JULY should have endeared Blue Rodeo to both the newly-emergent adult album alternative radio format, where McLachlan was queen, and the about-to-break-out alt.country underground. Sadly, while Blue Rodeo remained stars in Canada, they never broke through in the US.
Professional Reviews
Musician (1-2/95, p.77) - "...This outing is less raucous than their last, which enhances the rural overtones in the music while adding a sense of intimacy that brings the world behind these tunes into sharp focus..."
