Canada 150 – A Celebration of Music

Calling all patriotic Canadians… Universal Music Canada will issue Canada 150: A Celebration of Music at the end of this month; a multi-format release issued on the eve of Canada’s sesquicentennial (yes, that’s a word – it means 150th anniversary), which includes a six-CD super deluxe edition that comes complete with a ‘coffee table’ book.

Jeffrey Remedios, President & CEO of UMC said, “assembling a package that sums up Canada’s 150 years would be impossible” but they’ve gone ahead and given it a go, anyway! Remedios suggests it “goes some way to answering the question of ‘how does a nation sing happy birthday to itself?’”

The big six-CD super deluxe includes the aforementioned book (10″ x 14″ hardcover) which apparently has a special double cover with 10 x 14 hard‐cover book featuring a double cover with Marc Jordan & Murray McLauchlan commissioned paintings featured on each.

The music runs a wide gamut of talent, both new and old and features artist such as Bryan Adams, Men Without Hats, Leonard Cohen, Barenaked Ladies, Alannah Miles, Rush, The Band, Steppenwolf, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Ron Sexsmith, Daniel Lanois, Shania Twain, Cowboy Junkies, Joni Mitchell, k.d. lang, Blue Rodeo, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Martha and The Muffins and many, many more. The box does have one exclusive which is Lighthouse covering Leonard Cohen’s Tower of Song (produced by Bob Erzin).

If that’s too much there’s a two-CDNow and Next‘ edition which concentrates more on new and future talent while a humble 11-track single CD ‘ICON’ edition doesn’t mess around and gives you the big hits.

All three editions of Canada 150 will be issued on 30 June 2017.
