His 19th Album
Cletus J. "Bubba" Huckabee Jr. | Chesterfield County | 12/17/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"126.5 minutes with all the extras)

Now if you ask me, and a lot of devotees of compilation music anthology type deals do on a semi-regular basis, then this here monster collection of Bruce Cockburn works is the best to date... the best compilation, that is.

Before you commence to thinking that the profit hungry marketers have done it to us again and just thrown in a bunch of cuts we already purchased plus a couple of new tracks to make us pay for the entire package of songs and, thus, milk us for sales of songs we already purchased... I got news for you. There are indeed two songs that were new to this here CD when it come out, "Waiting for a Miracle" and "Stolen Land." However, there are a few more songs that are slightly different than other versions and worth taking a listen to. For example, the version of "Mama Just Wants to Barrelhouse All Night Long" on this CD is taken from the film 'Rumours of Glory' and ain't like any you ever heard before. From that same film they took the song "Rumours of Glory" and present it here on this CD. "Fascist Architecture" and "The Trouble with Normal" are versions that were, at the time, previously unreleased and somewhat different than other versions.

There are eleven tracks more on the Canadian version, ain't none of them rare or unknown for the Bruce Cockburn aficionado, but if you're going to spend the money and you want better value for dollar... then I'd pony up and fork over enough for the Canadian version. On the other hand, if you're Canadian, since the loonie don't really buy much seeing as how it is so weak, you might have to fork over even more if you want this (or any other ) CD. We folk in Chesterfield County call the Canadian loonie the "Northern Peso."

This here CD is a good way to jump in and get to know the music real quick if you never heard Bruce before. If you got six or seven albums already and are looking to buy more... I wouldn't start here unless you take careful stock of the songs on offer and make sure the majority of them are new to you. Otherwise, buy a different album that will expose you to a total collection of cuts you ain't never heard before. For all you folk out there who absolutely must have everything Bruce Cockburn has ever released, then make an effort to get this one. I write that because the cuts taken from the film soundtrack are nice deviations from what we all grew to love on the original albums and you will sleep better knowing you have another hole in your collection plugged up.
