Product Description

Amazon.ca

Toronto-based Blue Rodeo was purveying its own alternately sunny, grizzled mix of country and rock before the alternative country boomlet made it fashionable. This self-produced 1993 album, recorded mostly live at the band's farm, brought them fans partly because of the alternative country trend, partly because the set was more lyrical and explicit in its country accents. As transparent, and unapologetic, Neil Young fans, this was Blue Rodeo's Harvest, distinguished by the poles of its songwriting and singing team, Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor. Cuddy's clear, soaring tenor provides a romantic foil for Keelor's smokier, rougher-edged vocals, and together they write brooding rock ballads (""5 Days in May""), ringing, deceptively up-tempo loser's anthems (""Hasn't Hit Me Yet""), and convincing country ballads (""Bad Timing""), as well as spacier rock dirges (""What Is This Love,"" featuring Sarah McLachlan). --Sam Sutherland

I have followed BR throughout their career, first seeing them by chance at Toronto's Ontario Place outdoor venue in the 80's. This CD captures a wonderous essence of this band and songwriting team... wow!
Although I also enjoy their more rockin stuff, I think this CD is their best, most consistent, and well-rounded... (though I still have a soft spot for their magical first CD... although now somewhat dated...except for "Try").
Cheers

For me the bass on this album seemed a little weak on some of the tracks. It wasn't a depth problem so much but rather just seemed to be too much in the background. I found that turning down the treble a bit seemed to help even out the sound. Other than that it sounds pretty good. I was worried when I bought this that the vinyl would be too noisy due to the fact that the last two releases by Blue Rodeo did have bad vinyl. I was pleasantly surprised. The vinyl on this record was excellent. There are some very quiet passages on this album and the vinyl was mostly silent, very little surface noise.

I bought this after a trip to Canada in 1994 and it, more than any other album, and "Hasn't Hit Me Yet", more than any other song reminds me of my family and friends in that great land.
It gets five stars just for that, but in reality it is just a tremendously enjoyable album running through rock and ballads effortlessly and smoothly.
Excellent songs, great playing and singing from a fine Canadian band. Cheers!!

I was so happy when I found this CD the import section of a Shanghai DVD/CD shop. As it was not pirated, I had to pay full price; however, it was more than worth it to replace the copy I lost while living in South Korea.

This album definitely represents a more deliberately acoustic approach to their music, although they certainly weren't afraid of country-fying things here and there on previous releases, and this one certainly wasn't purely unplugged (e.g., Greg Keelor's blistering solo on "Five Days in May"). However, when I first listened to it (and watched the accompanying "Ear to the Ground" TV special on CBC), I definitely got the impression they were trying to break out of a 'great-album-followed-by so-so-album' rut that their first four releases represented. They did that, and how! Listening to the album, you can almost smell the hay in the barn where they did the recording. More important than this backdrop, they put together an amazing set of songs and performances, supplemented by wonderful cameos by people like Sarah McLachlan and Colin Linden. At least to my ears, they have never looked back since.

This is a classic Canadian album by an amazing group. Chances are that you own this album already on CD (or multiple copies of it as I do) so I will just discuss the quality of the vinyl pressing. I found it fantastic! Blue Rodeo uses a great range of instruments that work really well on vinyl and this first pressing is one of the cleanest sounding albums I own. As someone else mentions, a couple of tracks are very quiet and this comes through perfect on this heavy pressing, you are taken right back to those magical days in July when they recorded this album and feel like you are there.

Five Days in July is truly a masterpiece, an album that is beautiful at every level, sometimes hauntingly so as with Greg Keelor's Dark Angel which features Sarah McLachaln on piano and backup vocals. Jim Cuddy is also at his best on this album with amazing songs like English Bay and 'Til I Gain Control Again. No CD in my collection of over 600 has stood the test of time like this one, in my opinion this is the best album ever recorded by anyone, I know, a bold statement but after listening to Five Days many hundreds of times for more than 10 years I can honestly say that no other album has even come close. Blue Rodeo features two lead singers, Jim Cuddy and Greg Keeler, each with every different styles and sounds and there always seems to be just a bit of tension between them that causes them to push each other to be the best they can be. It is truly unfortunate that this band has not received the recognition it deserves in the United States. Buy this album, you will not be disappointed; and if you ever have the opportunity to see Blue Rodeo live, don't miss it. As good as they are recorded, they are even better live.

and another disk that's on my "CDs To Take With Me On a Desert Island" list. My favorite original songs on it are Bad Timing, an absolutely heartbreaking ballad about regret and the end of a relationship, and the uptempo Head Over Heels, a fun, sexy, all out terrific song. The band also does a great cover of the song Til I Gain Control Again.
There's a nice mix of ballads and uptempo rock/alt country numbers, and the guys are great musicians. I actually think that this CD has a nicer mix/balance of tempos than Casino, the other Blue Rodeo disk I own. There are some terrific guitar bits on this disk (and on Casino). Jim Cuddy's voice is in fine form, and I found I liked Greg Keelor's vocals more than I did on Casino. What's even better is that with the exception of Til I Can Gain Control Again, Cuddy and Keelor write all Blue Rodeo's songs.
If you like rock/alt country, -- or maybe even if you don't, and you just appreciate great songs, this album is a must! I know that I've fallen in love with this band, and now I'm going to try to get the rest of their CDs.
