Have you read “Have Not Been the Same: The Canrock Renaissance 1985-1995,” by Michael Barclay, Ian A.D. Jack, and Jason Schneider? Well, you should, because it’ll get you excited about the music contained on this collection. During those years, Canadian music was experiencing a boom and leading the world with some of the most inventive and amazing independent artists and labels in the world. Things were brilliant and creative and mind-blowing. The music and artists on this 2 disc compilation could serve as a soundtrack to the book and the time period, with many artists that would go on to bigger and better things, and some that have remained cult classics.

This compilation, released on the Intrepid label, pulls together 18 diverse tracks from 18 divergent artists. All of the bases are covered here, from folk to rock to weirdo, and everything in between. Enjoy an early take of “The Bereft Man’s Song,” later rerecorded and re-released on Crash Test Dummies’ debut album “The Ghosts that Haunt Me.” How about Winnipeg’s The Watchmen who had a hugely successful rock career in the 90s, but before that, they were a folky pop outfit who recorded “One Man Gone,” found here – still an unreleased classic. Sook-Yin Lee now hosts CBC Radio’s DNTO and does controversial and acclaimed film and TV acting, but back in the day, she led Bob’s Your Uncle, here performing “Purple Steps.” Then there’s the brilliant and bombastic Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, one of Canada’s most legendary live bands, found here doing “Just Can’t Seem to Get My Poor Self Together.”

There’s plenty to love here, and plenty to laugh about, of course. You’d be buying a hard to find collectors’ item of classic Canadian music AND supporting a hard-working campus & community radio station supporting great independent music like this. In short, you can’t go wrong.
