It’s the third annual Columbia Records Radio Hour Christmas Concert with Bruce Cockburn live from New York on December 12. 1993. This year’s special guest is the one and only Jackson Browne who is riding high on the swelling success of I’m Alive and about to experience a tremendous rebirth of interest in his substantial career.
Holding true to the standard established the past two years by Cockburn and his dsitinguished guests, this year’s Christmas show is filled with great performances of poignant pieces. The pair collaborates throughout with the highlights being Cockburn’s 1975 look at life and death entitled “Lament for the Last Days” and Browne’s comments on the true meaning of Christmas in “The Rebel Jesus.”
Other treats are the show’s opener, which was one of Cockburn’s first US radio songs, “Wondering Where the Lions Are” and a cover of Timbuk 3’s “All I Want for Christmas (is World Peace).”
Kick back with your favorite holiday spirit for 56 minutes of a thinking man’s Christmas with Bruce Cockburn and Jackson Browne.
