One could assume that while David Wiffen was standing on the side of the road hitchhiking across
Canada in the mid-60s, he was daydreaming of a successful music career. One could doubt that one of
those daydreams would be about an album he recorded in Vancouver in 1965 which would still be in
demand 55 years later!
The “Bunkhouse album” was originally going to be a folk sampler which was very popular in those days
but the other artists pulled out at the last minute due to a major snowstorm and David Wiffen recorded
It as a solo effort.
“Live at the Bunkhouse” was, in fact, recorded during a 3 hour session at a small studio on West
Broadway in Vancouver and 100 copies were released on the Universal International label.
By the early 70’s, David would become known as one of Canada’s greatest songwriters and many artists
including; Harry Belafonte, The Byrds & Tom Rush, recorded his songs.
Called the “Holy Grial” of canadian folk , the “Bunkhose” album has become one of the most difficult
albums to find for record collectors arround the world and we’re proud to bring it back to life.
