Blue Rodeo - Are You ReadyTwenty years. Ten albums. Blue Rodeo’s recordings are as constant—and comforting—as the changing seasons. The group’s latest marks a return to its acoustic roots, after the soul-inflected Palace of Gold. Standout tracks include Jim Cuddy’s sweet ode to his wife, “Rena,” Greg Keelor’s confessional “Stuck on You” and the chiming Diamond Mine-era discovery “Beverley Street.” Most surprising is Keelor’s haunting folksong “Paedra’s Meadow,” featuring the Celtic pipes and flute of The Chieftains’ Paddy Moloney.
