Product Description

So pronounced is Bruce Cockburn’s reputation as a celebrated singer-songwriter and respected music activist that it's sometimes been easy to overlook the fact that Cockburn is also an exceptional guitarist. Speechless should change all that. A collection of previously recorded and brand new instrumental tracks, the album puts the spotlight squarely on Cockburn's brilliant acoustic guitar playing.

Ranging from some of his earliest numbers to three recent compositions, Speechless showcases the breadth of Cockburn’s eclectic guitar style. There’s a strong cinematic quality to much of the album, whether it’s in pieces from the 1970s like the haunting "Islands in a Black Sky" and the cascading "Water into Wine," or else in 1990s instrumentals such as the emotional "When It's Gone It's Gone" and the ambient "Mistress of the Storms."

Most people think of Bruce Cockburn as Canada's premiere political folk artist. True enough. Often missed in this perception has been his long standing talent as a guitarist. The man can really play! He is adept, he is melodic, he is innovative. All of these qualities are apparent in this brilliant collection of instrumental pieces. Speechless indeed. This disc stands completely on its own as one of the best discs in this icon's catelogue. Right up there with Humans and Stealing Fire in its timelessness. And at the current price for this cd, it is a steal! Considering the chronological range of Speechless, it is incredibly seamless. Cue it up on the cd player and enjoy uninterrupted guitar pleasure from one of the masters.

Bruce Cockburn's lyrics has always been one of his strengths as an artist. By removing that component, I felt it would place this album at a disadvantage. But I was wrong. The music on this album has vitality, is very identifiable with Cockburn's acoustic work over the years and is thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end.
From the first listen, it instantly become one of my favourites.

For me, this CD highlights Bruce's strengths as a composer and musician, and his willingness to stretch himself artistically... Yet, this disc, by contrasting with his other disc -- by not having vocals -- makes a convincing case for the vibrance of Bruce's lyrics and singing (yeah, his voice is not the greatist, but it can be remarkably effective and moving).

An enjoyable addition to the work of a great artist.

Bruce Cockburn, an Ottawa Ontario Native was born in 1945 and has been playing guitar since the age of 14. That's a long time. With practice comes perfection and Bruce is by far one of the best acoustic guitarists walking the earth today.

I remember the endless outdoor folk festivals back in the mid seventies that I attended. Back then it was Bruce Cockburn and Valdy topping the bill and lesser known Bim. Those were the days. Ottawa was alive and music was everywhere.

Bruce has always been a spokesperson for the environment and causes associated with crimes against nature and mankind. He would visit developing nations,tackle national and global political causes which would become fodder for his writing and music.

This album is a twist to his usual albums as the title says "Speechless", just an endless array of intricate acoustic and spiritual numbers.

I envy his lifestyle, his passion for mankind and the world we live in. He is truly a great musician and a great Canadian.

This album is special.

This CD is a great addition for any Bruce Cockburn or any fan of expert instrumental guitar playing. There is variety in the style as well as the type of guitars being used (acoustic and resonator). I did not realize how good a guitar player Bruce Cockburn is until I saw him live in Thunder Bay about 20 years ago. I was blown away by a solo acoustic piece that he did. This is a CD that you can just put on and let it run regardless of what you may be doing - it is good listening without attention as background or when you listen intently. It is one of may favourite Bruce Cockburn CDs.
