Music Monday: Robert McKenzie

One of my favorite guilty pleasures of all time was the TV show Due South. It’s the story of a Mountie who first went to Chicago on the trail of the killers of his father and, for reasons that don’t need exploring at this juncture, remained as liaison with the Canadian consulate. {Can’t believe I still have that memorized!}
It starred Paul Gross, a vastly underrated actor who’s also a fantastic musician. He wrote and performed a couple of the songs that made it into the soundtrack, which also featured some beautiful stuff from Sarah MacLachlan—first time I’d heard the piano version of Possession—Tara MacLean, and Stan Rogers, amongst others. One of the most popular episodes, Mountie on the Bounty, features a ship battle with this song playing over it.
Stick to the end for an amazing guitar solo by—not sure, going by the credits—Captain Tractor. (And before you say anything, I totally remembered the quote by myself, even though it’s at the end of the song.)
