19 November 2002 - From Rounder Records: "Further Adventures Of" contains some of the most beautifully intricate acoustic guitar work and lyrical mysticism Bruce Cockburn has ever put on record. Originally released in 1978 and now re-mastered for this deluxe reissue, "Further Adventures Of" features standouts such as "Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hands," "Red Ships Take Off in the Distance," and "Feast of Fools." An instrumental bonus track originally recorded for the record, "Mountain Call," is also included. "Further Adventures Of" continues the spirited acoustic jazz of Cockburn's previous recording and finds him in full, exploratory flight. Produced by Eugene Martynec.

Known comments by Bruce Cockburn about this album, by date:

  • Circa 1986

    "Expanded horizons- first tours outside of Canada - Japan, small club circuit in Northeastern U.S. Was told I must be the reincarnation of Kenji Miyazawa, a fine Japanese poet. Sounds good from my end, but what bad things did he do to deserve me? Also was introduced to the work of "Christian" writer Charles Williams, a contemporary of and influence on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and others. These influences are all over the albums from this time."
    -- from the World Of Wonders Tour Program, circa 1986. Submitted by Rob Caldwell.
