The Tragically Hip - Saskadelphia LP
THE TRAGICALLY HIP (Canada) - Saskadelphia (2021) (Silver vinyl) This is their latest EP originally released on May 21st, 2021.
The band's first release since the death of lead singer Gord Downie in 2017, the album consists of six previously unreleased tracks connected to the recording sessions for their 1991 album Road Apples.
Saskadelphia had been the original working title of Road Apples during the recording sessions, but was rejected by the band's record label. Five of the six songs on the album are the original studio recordings, while one song is included in a later live performance as the original studio version could not be found.
All six recordings were among those the band rediscovered only in 2019 after a New York Times Magazine article that had listed the band as being among those artists whose master tapes had been lost in the 2008 Universal Studios fire led to the discovery that their tapes had in fact been transferred back to Canada many years earlier. **originally published on en.wikipedia.org** Universal Music Canada – 3587348
