O Canada: Raindrops in My Coffee

Sexsmith & Kerr: Raindrops in My Coffee


Canadian Ron Sexsmith is one of those singers I could listen to singing the proverbial phone book. Fortunately, I don't have to, because he also writes gorgeous songs. For Destination Unknown, he upped the ante with the harmony vocals of longtime drummer, cellist (and former Rheostatic) Don Kerr for an album of simply arranged, hearbreaking duets. Their voices are a natural fit, like a modern-day Everly Brothers, and there's no better example than "Raindrops in My Coffee." It sounds like the timeless classic it deserves to be.
