Published Feb 08, 2013Of all of Julie Doiron's projects over the years, her collaborative 1999 album with the Wooden Stars, simply called Julie Doiron and the Wooden Stars, is one of the most acclaimed, having won a Juno Award for Best Alternative Album in 2000. This month, that disc will arrive on vinyl for the first time ever thanks to a reissue from Jagjaguwar on February 19.
It doesn't appear that the reissue has any bonus material, meaning that the 11-song tracklist will presumably be kept in tact. The album was originally released on Tree Records and Doiron's own Sappy Records.
A press release describes it like this: "Combining elements of rock and jazz a la Joni Mitchell's early '70s work, Julie and the Wooden Stars somehow translated the coldness of the Canadian winter into one of the warmest and most tender records to be produced in the Eastern province in years."
LPs are available to order here, and you can check out an Exclaim! feature from 2000 about the record here.
