The Cowboy Junkies are an alternative country and folk rock band formed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1985 by Alan Anton (bassist), Michael Timmins (songwriter, guitarist), Peter Timmins (drummer) and Margo Timmins (vocalist). The three Timminses are siblings, and Anton worked with Michael Timmins during their first couple of bands. John Timmins was initially a member of the band but left the group before the recording of their first album. The band line-up has never changed since, although they use several guest musicians on many of their albums, including multi-instrumentalist Jeff Bird who has performed on every album except the first.

The Cowboy Junkies’ 1986 debut album, produced by Canadian producer Peter Moore, was the blues-inspired Whites Off Earth Now!!, recorded in the family garage using a single ambisonic microphone.

The band gained wide recognition with their second album, The Trinity Session, recorded in 1987 at Toronto’s Church of the Holy Trinity. Their sound, again using the ambisonic microphone, and their mix of blues, country, folk, rock and jazz earned them both critical attention and a strong fan base. The Los Angeles Times named the recording one of the 10 best albums of 1988.

The Cowboy Junkies have gone on to record 16 studio albums and five live albums, and have remained an active band into the late 2010s.

The Trinity Session is the second album by alternative rock band Cowboy Junkies, released in 1988.

The music was recorded inside Toronto’s Church of the Holy Trinity on November 27, 1987, with the band circled around a single microphone. The album includes a mixture of original material by the band and covers of classic folk, rock, and country songs. Notable amongst the covers is the band’s most famous single, a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane”, based on the version found on 1969: The Velvet Underground Live, rather than the later studio version from Loaded. Also included is “Blue Moon Revisited (Song for Elvis)”, which is both a cover and an original, combining a new song by the band with the pop standard “Blue Moon”.

The album was released in early 1988 on Latent Recordings in Canada, and re-released worldwide later in the year on RCA Records. “Working on a Building” and “Blue Moon Revisited (Song for Elvis)” did not appear on the Latent Records release. “Blue Moon Revisited” was originally released on It Came from Canada, Vol. 4, a compilation of Canadian independent bands.

In 2007, the album was performed live in its entirety as part of the All Tomorrow’s Parties’ Don’t Look Back series. Also that year, the band returned to The Church of the Holy Trinity to record a new version of the Trinity Session with guest musicians Natalie Merchant, Vic Chesnutt, and Ryan Adams. This new set of recordings was released as Trinity Revisited, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of The Trinity Session.
