weaves together influences as diverse as Renaissance music and Piedmont blues,
including the first of many of Bruce’s political songs, “It’s Going Down Slow,”
and the seminal recording of Bruce’s influential finger-picking style on the
title track. Now remastered with two bonus tracks, Sunwheel Dance shows a major
artist stretching his boundaries, spiritually searching and maturing before our
Recorded live in Toronto in the spring of 1977, Circles in the Stream captures
Bruce *censored*burn at the peak of his creative powers with a band capable of
reaching the highest heights and ready to follow him anywhere. Including all 17
original tracks, newly remastered with new notes by Canadian music authority
Nicholas Jennings, Circles in the Stream is both a brilliant live recording and
one of the best in the entire *censored*burn catalogue.
The result of three years of global traveling, 1989’s Big Circumstance reflects
Bruce Cockburn’s heartfelt reactions to war, repression and environmental abuse.
On this album Cockburn fires off some of the most politically potent material of
his career, including “If A Tree Falls,” which tackled the issue of rain forest
destruction. This remastered version of Big Circumstance features a bonus track,
an acoustic version of “If A Tree Falls.” Sharpened rather than dulled by the
passage of time, Big Circumstance remains a powerful testament to one man’s
social conscience and artistic vision.
