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

  • Circa 1986

    "Salt, Sun and Time- Matthew, Mark, Luke and John meet Django Reinhardt. Went to England and Scandanavia for some months, came back and had a house built on some land my father gave me not far from Ottawa. This was the first time I'd actually lived in rural surroundings in a stationary way, as opposed to camper travel."
    -- from the World Of Wonders Tour Program, circa 1986. Submitted by Rob Caldwell.
