"Misguided Angel" by Cowboy Junkies

Birthday wishes go out today to Margo Timmins, for more than twenty years now the ethereal voice of her brother Michael's band, Canadian roots music pioneers Cowboy Junkies.

The song Misguided Angel (which Timmins herself believes is the best one she ever wrote) originally appeared on the 1988 album The Trinity Session - the band's second album, which was recorded live at Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity, and which provided them with their breakthrough; the version released as a single in 1988 was recorded in one take, a testament to the artistry of all the musicians involved.
