The chameleonic Bruce Cockburn has more muscial sides than one could ever imagine. Here in his self-titled debut album/CD, 'Bruce Cockburn' we are introduced to the lighter side of this musical genius.

Nothing complicated here, just Bruce and his guitar having a good time. Containing -10 tracks-, the tunes are simple and folksy like a gentle breeze on a hot summers day. At times carefree, at times contemplative, but all enjoyable. Perfect for daydreaming the afternoon away.

A beautiful first album and the humble beginning of a fruitful career for this Canadian legend. To understand where a person's going you have to know where they've been.

I feel that this recording shows the incredible depth of the musician as well as a lighter side that true fans, that at first may shy away from but later, hold dear. Bruce doen't play much "UP" music, He is usually pretty serious. So I find the multi-dementiality of his debut refreshing and fun. The piece "spring song" is probably one of, if not my favorite song my Cockburn. I've heard all his releases and seen him live, this is an album to own.

Bruce's first album is his most moody and melodic. It's absolute magic; it will take you away. If you appreciate pure and evocative music and lyrics, please treat yourself to this disc. The same could be said for Jackson Browne's debut album. Check them both out!

BC’s first album is a gentle folksy stroll through the country (complete with a buzzy bee and squealing brakes…or whatever that is, on “The Bicycle Trip”!) and it features the two instruments BC has always been intimately familiar with: his guitar & his voice. In fact almost all of the songs are essentially solo acoustic numbers (excepting one of the better known songs off this release, the jaunty and jazzy piano-driven “Musical Friends”). BC’s voice would deepen and broaden as time went on so this early showing compared to later tunes betrays the immaturity of his singing, often noted high and shallow, but he is already showing his knack for adventurous improvisation and lyrical wit. Outside of “Going To the Country” and “Musical Friends” I think my favorite track is the pensive, serious, and sometimes meandering “Man Of A Thousand Faces”. There are several problems with this track (pacing, an ill-advised and shrill piercing noise inserted) but you can see and hear the seeds of where BC will travel to in about another four or five albums, and you can hear him reaching to express darker thoughts and ideas in poetic fashion. I also like the center of this song with his move to a simple but ominous guitar melody. Most of the rest of the album is contrasted starkly with this song; it maintains a breeziness, almost a quaint springtime country friendliness with Cockburn content to meditate on nature and nurture with just a few abstractions and obtrusions thrown in. Close inspection of the cover reveals his sentiments and the album’s purpose: opening a centrally located door to an idyllic and bright country road while moving from a bleak industrial cityscape.

For BC fans this is a must.
