SONGS OF 69 – Independent Mar 20, 2021

Canada’s Reid Jamieson continues his reign as the crooning king of killer covers. From Led Zeppelin to the theme from Sesame Street, this eclectic retro collection was originally recorded in March 2011, as a surprise birthday present for Reid’s wife to celebrate the year of her birth – 1969. This put the kaibosh on her plans to start lying about her age, but was warmly received by his partner in all things nonetheless. No easy task to record this many songs in secret when you share a one bedroom apartment with the person you are hiding it from – Reid had to stash a rented snare drum in their laundry basket for weeks! Released only as demos until now, a decade later, this album finally gets a proper mix, mastering and release, bringing renewed energy to these timeless classics.

COVER ME Reid Jamieson – Songs of 69

It must be nice to be married to a musician and have them give you the gift of music. That’s the position Carolyn Victoria Mill found herself in one day in 2011. Her creative partner and husband Reid Jamieson surprised her with a birthday present of covers of songs that were first recorded in 1969, the year Mill was born. This year, Jamieson shared that collection with the world, and we’re delighted he did. His affection comes through, both for his wife and these songs, and shows what a strong year 1969 was for music. With a palette ranging from Led Zeppelin to the Sesame Street theme song, Jamieson takes all these songs into the bedroom studio, turning small budget into big asset (clinking glasses make great percussion) and making these songs of ’69 twelve to be cherished – and not just by the first two people to hear them. – Patrick Robbins
