    Just saw this in a Globe and Mail article - looks like there is at least one more GD record coming.
    ’ A month before the Away is Mine sessions, Downie had made an album with another friend and collaborator, Dale Morningstar and his avant garde indie-rock band The Dinner is Ruined. No release date for that record has been set.’

    I guess that's why when they were promoting this album, they chose their words carefully....'the last SOLO gord downie record"

    It’s here. Gotta admit it’s a bit surreal listening to new Gord. And it’s 45rpm!!!

    Nice haul. The Grand Bounce is a favorite of mine.

    I am loving the acoustic version. Had to go back and listen to "Traffic is Magic" as soon as it was done, that song blew me away. Looking forward to giving this some more time to grow on the weekend.

    didn't have time for my gord fest last night. I have the vinyl. I have the digital files. I just can't bring myself to listen to this until I'm in the right setting. Dammit.

    Amazon updating my shipping and the cd will be here today. I decided to have a Gord-fest myself. That album he did with The Sadies is great too.

    i'm not a sadies fan, so i actually didn't listen to that record until years after it came out. it's actually my favourite of his non-hip releases.

    HUGE Hip fan...and I have to say that his solo stuff is hit & miss for me. This new record however, is BEAUTIFUL.

    The way I read that was the same for the Chris Cornell release - it was the last album they recorded but there's still stuff they recorded before those latest releases. I'm pretty confident there will be more to come from both camps but those records are the very last thing that was done in the studio by them
    I am wired and fading...

    there's more hip stuff, but I don't think there's going to be another proper Gord solo record. Maybe a few odds and ends.
