Published November 20, 2003.Ron SexsmithRarities (Ronboy/Linus)There are few singers who can find the beauty that lies between the lines and under the melodies of a song. Ron Sexsmith is one of those singers. But you knew that—worn copies of Blue Boy or Wherea-bouts have already revealed those finer points. Rarities is an accumulation of B-sides, demos and shelved tracks: songs you may have heard at shows but were never able to find. It’s a shame it’s limited to one disc, because surely a writer as prolific as Mr. Sexsmith has more where this came from. —Dave Haydencategories: Canadian artist,Juno nominee (2006)
