BRUCE COCKBURN
Arcata 1997 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Van Duzer Theater, Arcata, CA; November 3, 1997. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to DeathGlider for sharing the show at Dime.

Notes:

Received in trade, lineage unknown. An absolutely crystal clear, stunning soundboard recording. I don’t think it can get any better than this. Among 1997 (Bruce Cockburn shows that were recorded and put out into circulation), this show has a few unique qualities: an early version of ‘Embers of Eden’ before it was released in 2000 on ‘Breakfast In New Orleans.’ And the tune ‘Wise Users’ was unreleased at the time except on the ‘Honor The Earth Campaign’ double CD. And ‘Sahara Gold’ and ‘Silver Wheels.’ They may have been played at other shows, but none recorded that I know of.

Bruce Cockburn’s albums have sold over seven million copies worldwide. He is revered by fans and fellow musicians alike as one of the most important songwriters of his generation… As a long‐time activist, Cockburn has spoken out on a range of issues: native rights, land mines, human rights atrocities in war‐torn countries, Third World debt, ecological devastation, and corporate crime. Cockburn has been awed, appalled, and incensed by what he has seen and felt, and by the very real evil that humans can inflict on one another. As he outlines in his 2014 memoir, Rumours Of Glory, he believes that we can, and should, be dedicated to our shared humanity… “In a way we, and all living things, are made of music… music is my diary, my anchor through anguish and joy, a channel for the heart.”
