This album is the second cover version album. Released on July 27th, 2004 from Nonesuch Records. k.d.lang sings songs which were originally released by Canadian artists including Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Jane Siberry, Ron Sexsmith, and Bruce Cockburn., and which are called her roots. I love a version of Jane Siberry's beautiful song, "The Valley" and "Love Is Everything".
I am sure that this is a wonderful album, but next time I expect her to write her own songs.
