Blue Shadows - Lucky To Me
June 22, 1995
The Windsor Star
Windsor, Ontario, Canada
This is the rode Jeffrey Hatcher and Billy Cowsill – the songwriting heart of The Blue Shadows – were born for.
The Vancouver-based group distills all its inspirations and aspirations into one shining sound that roams through city streets and out into the open countryside.
There’s the country feel that comes from decades of living in Western Canada, country filtered through a rock ‘n’ roll sensibility comparable to Blue Rodeo. There are those harmonies, a kind of Beatles/Everly Brothers-pop combo sound. It’s all kept simple, lyrically so too, and heartfelt. Never have they played better. Rating: A
