The Sadies: In Concert Volume One

[cover art]

Released in August 2006, this is a double-live set from Toronto's spaghetti-surf guitar heroes (Mike Belitsky - drums and vocals, Sean Dean - upright bass, Dallas Good - guitars, keyboards & vocals, Travis Good - guitars, fiddle, mandolin & vocals), featuring guests like Neko Case, Garth Hudson, Maud Hudson and Jon Langford. Garth plays on several tracks, Maud joins in on the track "Food, Water, Etc." The 2-CD set also includes a cover of The Band's "Evangeline" and the song "Leave Me Alone" that was released by Levon and the Hawks/The Canadian Squires as a 45 single in 1965.


Led by brothers Dallas and Travis Good, the Toronto-based Sadies honed a distinctive sound taking influence from traditional country, surf music and garage rock. After earning notice and adding backing singer Neko Case, the group issued their debut LP Precious Moments in 1998. Tremendous Efforts followed in early 2001, teaming them with Breeders/P.J. Harvey producer Steve Albini for the second time. A year later, Stories Often Told marked their first album without Albini, placing Blue Rodeo's Greg Keelor in his position. The Sadies produced themselves on 2004's Favourite Colours, with Keelor, Nick Luca and Chris Shreenan-Dyck handling the engineering duties; Robyn Hitchcock made a guest appearance as vocalist and lyricist on one track. The Sadies have also recorded albums in collaboration with R&B legend Andre Williams and Mekons frontman Jon Langford.
