Fifty years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, an assortment of Canadians bring to life the jottings of the little-known Scott Garbe. Viewpoints get portrayed in the manner of Jesus Christ Superstar, from an emergency room orderly (“Parkland”) to Jack Ruby (“When Will I Be Mine”) to First Lady Jacqueline (“Disintegrating”). The latter is performed by the Cowboy Junkies, whose Michael Timmins produced most of the album. Musically, Lee Harvey Osmond (Tom Wilson) and The Skydiggers are the best at making these imaginings memorable.
