Description

True North is proud to announce the continuation of the Bruce Cockburn Deluxe Edition Reissue Campaign. Rare & previously unreleased bonus tracks - original vinyl album artwork - 24 bit/96 khz digital remastering - new liner notes written by respected Canadian journalist and author of "Before The Goldrush" Nick Jennings - additional bonus photos - Special O Card sleeve packaging. With this release in 1984, Bruce Cockburn's words and music took a greater urgency than ever before. The previous year he made his first trip to Central America on behalf of the international development group OXFAM. While in southern Mexico he visited a refugee camp that had recently been attacked by the helicopters of the U.S.-backed Guatemalan army. The horrific experience sparked the anger- filled "If I Had A Rocket Launcher", a song which brought him unprecedented attention - garnering heavy radio airplay and regular video rotation on MTV. The album is full of many of Cockburn's most powerful political songs, yet it boasts some of his most romantic numbers as well. From "Lovers In A Dangerous Time" to "Making Contact", whether issuing calls to action or cries for help. Bruce Cockburn's poetry demands affection. Upon its release the album immediatly staked a claim as one of the most compelling releases by a singer-songwriter in the 1980s. Nearly 20 years later, its impact is undiminished.
