On Caution Horses, the Cowboy Junkies third album, we find the band venturing into country territory. And they do it well. Margo's voice is as sultry and beautiful as ever. The songs are woven together like a collection of sad, short tales.

There is not a weak or bad song on this album. Highlights of the album for me are "Cause Cheep Is How I Feel," "Rock and Bird," "Witches," and "Where Are You Tonight." Their cover of Neil Young's "Powderfinger" is probably the only cover of a Neil Young tune that I can honestly say sounds better than the original.

This is one of those desert island albums that you gotta have.


Cowboy Junkies - Powderfinger

The story is about a hillbilly riverside family who have something on their property illegal to protect , probably whiskey stills, with defiance, even if it means firing bullets at the riverboat authorities.

The white boat is the police, the 1st shot that hit the dock was the police shooting, missed him, raised my rifle to my eyes (he shot back at at the boat cops). Some say powderfinger relates to cocaine but it is gun powder. The family back then were most likely stilling whiskey
