He was unable to get any of Paul Gross's cd's here....and no credit card ment no on-line purchase......so when I found this disc and was able to give it to him for his birthday last April he was in heaven...played it till I thought the laser in the cd player would burn out. I don't think there was a song he didn't like on the whole cd. I found the Inuit Soliliquy very moving...I wish I had seen the episode it came from.....must have been great.
Tony loved this album.
Tony,sadly,passed away in December. He would have put his own review of it on this site if he had had the chance...now I try and do that for him.If you have seen the show then much of the music will be familar...if not then it is very much worth the effort to have a listen...it is a strange mixture but it is worth the cost..something to listen to with the lights down...something to enjoy...something to remember.
I recorded the instrumental version of the theme and Ride Forever and had them both played at his funeral....because they both gave him such joy...and the fact that I'm sure he will ride forever, somewhere out there.
This first "Due South" soundtrack features some lesser-known (to Americans south of the border) Canadian artists such as Kashtin (Quebec First Nations group), Klaatu, the Northern Pikes (who recently reunited), Figgy Duff, Blue Rodeo and the Holly Cole Trio, Paul Gross (Benton Fraser/director and exec producer of last two seasons), along with Sarah McLachlan and The Guess Who.
The songs featured range from whimsical (Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft), folksy (Due South Theme, Bone of Contention, Figgy Duff, Ride Forever), native (Akua Tuta), and rock (Possession, American Woman). There are also snippets of the original score (Horses, Cabin Music featuring bad boy fiddle virtuoso Ashley MacIsaac, Victoria's Secret, Inuit Soliloquy, Dief's In Love) by Jack Lenz that capture Fraser's yearning for the silent white north of his childhood, piano driven, wistful laments on lost love, action sequences....this is a Canadian soundtrack at its best. It is the essence of "Due South" on CD. This is also more family-friendly than the second "Due South" CD that features adult language and some very dark songs.
The music helps the audience feel their way through the fantastic stories and quality performances, and indeed personally through life. The soundtrack has songs to support any mood, from the superb theme song by Jay Semko, the Mountie harmony 'Ride Forever'... which is just as stunning as it was on the screen, to the heart rendering melody of Sarah McLachlan's 'Possession' (Piano Version). Other classy ones on the soundtrack are Spirit Of The West's 'Bone of Contention' and Fraser/Inuit Soliloquy spoken by one of the show's stars Paul Gross.
This soundtrack is magnificent, in its composition, intention, and meaning... unfortunately the series Due South has drawn the final curtain, but with the help of this quality soundtrack I can remember the good times it brought me... and in doing so, keeps the show alive for me.
All good things must end, but what a great show this was. One of the best in the history of television, in any country. Truly zany, groundbreaking, poignant, and too many other positive adjectives to list. Pity the person who wasn't a fan! If you were a Due South-er, you must order this cd.
