I came to Cockburn through the activist tours of the 80s and his hit “If I Had a Rocket Launcher” from Stealing Fire. But he had a decades long career before that, especially with success in his native Canada.

Cockburn is joined by Robert Boucher, Pat Godfrey, and Bill Usher.

This album was recorded live at Toronto’s Massey Hall in April of 1977 and reflect his earlier folk sound, with very strong writing and guitar work. I found my copy – a US pressing distributed by Island Records – at Mill No. 5 in Lowell MA.
