Long Hot Summer Days on CD

2017 release. At age sixty-nine, Jim Byrnes has recorded a career milestone, which, given his history with numerous Juno Awards and Maple Blues Awards, among many other accolades, is saying a lot. But, if you listen just once through 'Long Hot Summer Days', it's easy to be convinced that there simply isn't anyone alive today who loves a good song more than Jim does. Jim has collaborated on seven album releases now with Steve Dawson, the award winning guitarist and producer. It's a partnership that had it's genesis in 2004 when Jim and Steve got together to record the critically acclaimed 'Fresh Horses'. Since then, they have played countless shows and sessions together across Canada and around the world. Understandably, there aren't many musicians capable of rising to the demands set by the music was chosen for 'Long Hot Summer Days.' So, it was a very special group that came together at The Warehouse Studio in Vancouver to record for a week last spring; Steve Dawson (guitars), Chris Gestrin (keyboards), Geoff Hicks (drums), Jeremy Holmes (bass), and a horn section containing some of Vancouver's finest - Malcolm Aiken, Jerry Cook and Dominic Conway. Guest appearances by The Sojourners on harmony vocals and Monkeyjunk's Steve Marriner on the harmonica, virtually guaranteed that a very special recording was in the works. Warm and weathered. Soaring and bright. 'Long Hot Summer Days' is a masterwork from one of Canada's best-loved musical icons. Records like this don't come around every day. Listen and be taken away.
