Bruce Cockburn is singer/songwriter Bruce Cockburn's debut album. The album was originally released in 1970 and is the first album to be released by True North Records. The album received a Canadian gold record award in 1995. For his debut, the artist favors sparse arrangements, consisting primarily of Cockburn on acoustic guitar (and occasional piano and dulcimer) with some support from Dennis Pendrith on bass.

This was Cockburn's first release of new material in three years. It was a move away from the somewhat dated, overblown sound of his previous World of Wonders, toward a leaner, more guitar-dominated sound. Budgeting for album art seemed to be a little low, but luckily the collection of songs was of consistent high quality. As with most Cockburn albums, this is a mix of socially conscious, spiritual, and reflective songs. Cockburn had spent time in Nepal in 1987 and what he saw there found its way into some songs, including "Tibetan Side of Town" and "Understanding Nothing.

1989's Big Circumstance reflects Bruce Cockburn'heartfelt reactiond to war, repression and environmental abuse. On this album Cockburn fires off some of the most politically potent material of his career, including If A Tree Falls which tackled the issue of the rain destruction. This remastered version of Big Circumstance features a bonus track, an acoustic version of If A Tree Falls. Sharpened rather than dulled by the passage of time, Big Circumstance remains a powerful testament to one man's social conscience and artistic vision.
