‘High Mileage Soul’ was released in December of 2003. It was recorded by Scott Franchuk of Riverdale Recorders and produced by Morrison and Franchuk. Terry has solicited the talents of some of Edmontons best musicians including; Chris Smith (guitar), John Gorham (bass and vocals), and Paul ‘Duke’ Paetz (drums and vocals). The CD includes appearances by Thom Golub (upright bass), Maria Dunn (accordian), Bob Tildsley (trumpet), Kevin Cook (guitar), Gary Bowman (piano), Mark Ladouceur (bouzouki) and Lance ‘Uncle Thirsty’ Loree (pedal steel).
This recording is a great collection of 13 original songs whose subjects range from life as a traveling musician in the title cut ‘High Mileage Soul’, to the plight of a farmer in times of drought in ‘Long Dusty Road’ and the introspective jazzy strains of ‘Sweet Sanctuary’. There’s lots here to choose from and fans of Morrison’s songwriting won’t be dissappointed.
“Morrison’s gift for painting aural pictures gives way to an aching intensity at points…. ‘High Mileage Soul’ is the best testament yet that Morrison’s acute musical observations should be heard.”
