It would have been nice if some Canadian influence had been on it. Just to reflect his earlier years when he was in Montreal. Great line up though. can't disagree with it.

Elvis Costello married a Canadian and now lives in Vancouver. That makes him Canadian content.

okay Beer, how about this ? these folks are still around, still playing
and were in Montreal in JW's early times there. They all had an association either casual or more personal, and are fine artists in their own right. I picked songs that the 'names' didn't cover. He sure has a lot of good 'uns.

Two More Bottles of Wine : Willie Dunn
Yankee Lady : Penny Lang (why not ?)
Black Dog : Bruce Murdoch
Twigs and Seeds : Danny Greenspoon
Midnight Bus : Bobby Cohen and Marty Harris
Isn't That So ?: Chris Rawlings
Let the Rough Side Drag : Bill Garret & Sharon Ryan
Lay Down Your Burden : Kevin Head
Snow : Bill Russell
Laisser les Bontemps Rouler : Ville Emard Blues Band
L'air de La Louisiane : (instrumental)
          Rick Whitelaw, Anna McGarrigle and me

if I had serious cash, I'd be dangerous !
sorry if I left anyone out. these are just the folks I know, and are still kickin' and pickin'

"When I was sick last year, fixing to die, some friends decided to make a CD of various artists performing my songs. Jimmy Buffett wrote me around Christmastime with the news. I struggled out of my chair and did a little boogaloo around the livingroom," says Jesse Winchester at www.jessewinchester.com.

I assume Jimmy Buffett and Elvis Costello invited people like James Taylor, Rosanne Cash and Lucinda Williams because those are the people they knew and the people they thought would sell thousands of CD's to help Jesse in his illness.

I, for one, applaud them.

Making a fantasy list of obscure Montreal musicians from 40 or 45 years ago doesn't do anyone any good.



They took the initiative and did it all as a gift to Jesse. Making lists of Montreal singers who knew Jesse thirty or forty years ago just smacks of pettiness.

Jesse didn't write "Two More Bottles" of Wine". I think "Little Glass of Wine" is the only song he wrote with "wine" in the title.

Would this song suit Willie Dunn? I don't know his music at all.

Man, just when we were going to have some fun someone who wants to remain whatever steps in.
There is no greater performer than Jessie. We all love him.
I tuned into "Little Glass of Wine" and you know, I think Willie would do a fine job of it judyac.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willie_Dunn

When Willie played at a festival i was involved with, he told me it was over 40 years since he had seen Jessie (they were friends. To what degree i don't know.). It was a great reunion. with Penny Lang being there, Ron Bankley, and Bruce Murdoch. what a time.
