Jimmy Rankin CD-Harvest Highway-In Review
Contains 11 songs, with 7 written by Jimmy
By John Gavin, Sunday, November 26, 2023


ASJimmyRankinCDHarevestHighway.jpgJimmy Rankin singer/songwriter from Mabou, Cape Breton just

released his 8th Album entitled, Harvest Highway on October 13, 2023.

ASJimmyRankinPromoPhoto2023.jpgJimmy was a member of the famous group from Mabou, Cape Breton

The Rankin Family who had major success in the 1990's. After

disbanding as a group, Jimmy went solo and went on to have a very

successful music career singing, writing and touring everywhere.

This eleven-track album is a continuation of Rankin's last album,

Moving East-an homage to the East Coast.

These are the first full-length albums that he recorded in his home

Province with fellow Nova Scotian, Joel Plaskett.

Musicians on the album are:

JP Cormier - Ronald Hynes - Dale Murray and Jordan Murphy.

Harvest Highway is a captivating showcase of Jimmy's versality as a

songwriter, weaving a tapestry of tales and emotions that range from

profound love and yearning to introspection and unwavering strength.

Here are the song titles:

Harvest Highway - Irish Red - Sue St. Marie - Merasheen Farewell

Peggy Gordon - Doors of Assisi - Drunk or Sober - Our Time is Tonight

Missing At The Somme - Banks of Sicily - One Direction

All songs were written by Jimmy except, Missing At The Somme,

One Direction, Peggy Gordon and Banks of Sicily.

Teaming up with fellow East Coast hero Joel Plaskett-who produced

and played multiple instruments on Harvest Highway-Rankin

established the earthy, down-home sound that serves his latest records

so well, taking full advantage of Plaskett's analog approach at Fang

Recording in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

Atlantic Seabreeze gives this album high credits and rates it at a five

star rating out of 5 stars.
