    Shon Jahrzehnte dieses Album besessen aber erst vor etwa 2 J. Cockburn richtig "entdeckt" über dieses Album - Foxglove, Islands (Wolken???) In A Black Sky, When The Sun Goes Nova - die Situationskomik! - ...or your trousers rip I'll be waiting dear... Besonders die Instrumental Compilation Speechless hat es mir angetan, da kann ich mich beim Zuhören total rein versenken. Schade dass es die nicht auf Vinyl gibt.

      Sadly, just discovering this album, and artist. Yes, it was the cover art that drew my attention, however, upon listening to the album I found myself wondering how in the world I had not discovered this incredible musician earlier. Cockburn fuses Jazz, Folk, and Blues seamlessly while weaving intricate rhythms and melodies with soulful and pondering lyrics that makes him a stand-out in any collection. Breathtakingly awesome!

          Really attractive and well put together cover using an Alex Colville painting that is wittily continued on back of sleeve. Topped off by heavy textured paper lyric insert. Definitely worthy of any 'best album cover design' lists.
