The acoustic version of World of Wonders that you've been playing in live settings the past few years is a favourite of mine. What prompts you to re-write the music to some of your previously recorded songs, and is there any chance this particular version will show up on a recording in the future?
Bruce Cockburn: Most of the songs are designed when I write them ..to be workable as a solo or as a band. Sometimes a song is meant for a band and that's what happened with World Of Wonders. The original guitar part doesn't have enough substance to it to be a workable solo so I came up with a different one. There are no plans to put it on an album that way but who knows.
