Already having won over the critics, don't miss this opportunity to own "Above the Ground" (meaning "Still Alive"), Burton Cummings' first solo album release since 1990! All 19 tracks were written by Cummings - honest and revealing reflections on his life. Cummings says: "Let's face it...a 60 year old can't be writing teenage fluff anymore. I'm very conscious of how important the words are at this stage in my life." There are songs of faith ("Any Minor Miracle" and "Invisible"), songs with socio-political viewpoints ("Look Out Charlie", "We Just Came from the USA", "Pretty Pictures", "Up in the Canyon"), songs about friends and music legends gone too soon ("Kurt's Song", "Powers at Play"), the dark side ("Ponderlust"), discovery ("Revelation"), soul searching ("Dream"), poor judgment ("Crazy If You Mess with the Gods"), parenthood ("Junior Won't Behave"), aging ("Above the Ground"), and the simply beautiful ("A Touch of Morning"). Add Burton's expert keyboarding and unmistakable voice to the mix, and the result is a brilliant album guaranteed not to disappoint. A final note: There is an accompanying hour-long DVD of the "Making of Above the Ground", featuring exceptional footage by Lil Sarafian of the legendary Burton Cummings during the recording sessions. If you know nothing about cutting an album (or even if you do), you must see this video - a fabulous "up close and personal" film. Not only do you get the CD, but the bonus DVD as well, all for one very affordable price!
