The Skip 5 Show #1: Bruce Cockburn – Sahara Gold
I will listen to Bruce Cockburn any time, so this is a fantastic way to start this month.
From his 1984 Stealing Fire album, this tune opens with a gorgeous acoustic guitar line over a somewhat martial beat, before breaking down into a swinging, bass-heavy tune with walking electric guitar line. Here, he talks about the ecstacy of a shared night of passion. As is typical of his work, the lyrics beautifully evoke images and put you right in the scene.
My copy is from the deluxe edition, and it sounds huge in the good headphones.
