Synopsis

Amazon.com
Recorded live at the Barrymore Theatre in Madison, Wisconsin in May 1997, this EP deftly demonstrates Cockburn's ability to discuss politics without resorting to the sort of dull pedantry that usually overtakes such discussions. As a Canadian singer-songwriter of great renown, he's moved away from the plaintive folk approach and injected his music with unusual rhythmic bounce, allowing synthesizers and other modern technology emblematic of world decline to color his world as he rails against it. The title says it all: "Call it Democracy," "Stolen Land," "Fascist Architecture." This is one serious dude. --Rob O'Connor

Worth every penny

"Right from the Loud electric arpegiated cord that opens this album, you know it's going to be awesome. From the rocking "Call it Democracy" to the dark, intense "Strange Waters", and the amazing fingerpicking on "Facist Architecture" and the title track, there's not a lousy track on this album. The recording is clear and well mixed, but still has a raw in your face quality that you would want from a live performance. I own a few of Bruce's records and enjoy them, but this is by far my favorite. I never really get tired of hearing it. Highly recommended."
Awesome CD...

"I had heard "Charity of Night" before, so I 'gambled' on this CD (for only $7... not much of a gamble!). The energy of live performance is completely intact, and for an "older guy", Bruce still rocks right up there with any 20-something band. "Strange Waters", "Birmingham Shadows" (both off 'Charity') and "Stolen Land" all have a great atmosphere, and are intense without needing to be really noisy or need screaming vocals."
