Music You Don't Know You Like Yet




BRUCE COCKBURN SLIFE OF LIFE Slice of life could not be a more perfect title for this release. Bruce Cockburn has graced stages throughout the world for over 40 years, has played to millions and has written some of the finest folk & rebellious tunes to date. This CD features Bruce naked on stage with just his voice, his stories and his guitar. At first I was worried I would miss the band but after the first listen I was amazed on how brilliant his guitar work was and I realized it wasn’t the band but the man himself that made these songs come to life. The CD features a career retrospective of favorites including “Lovers In A Dangerous Time” “Wondering Where The Lions Are”, “Pacing The Cage” and the ever controversial “If I Had A Rocket Launcher”. The CD concludes with one of my favorites and lesser known tracks “Mama Just Wants To Barrelhouse All Night Long” Produced by Long time friend the great Colin Linden this live disc should please all Cockburn fans as he truly serves up a very tasty Slice Of His Life.
