3.0 out of 5 stars The Lighter Side Of A Musical Chameleon March 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars spring song April 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid album October 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sold effort by a man who would in his future be one of the greatest guitar players to walk the earth. If you are unfamiliar with his work buy this album after purchasing his later stuff. If you have any of his later work purchase this one to complete your collection so you can see more of his evolution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Debut Albums are often the Best May 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
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!
