One of the most poetic, political (and worldly) and underrated songwriters and guitarists of the 1980s and 1990s is Bruce Cockburn, a Canadian. His album Charity of Night was one of the best of the 1990s. Here's two songs from that album, the first done acoustic but very electric on the lp, and the second from the record. Other keys songs: "If I Had a Rocket Launcher," "Mighty Trucks of Midnight," "If You Had a Dream Like Fine," and some fine ballads.
