Packing a punch on the nature of economic hard times are the songs “Bitter Winter” and “Shanty Man,” the last a song describing the effects on a family in the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Sanborn says, “Bitter Winter describes the nature of the times we’re living in; homeless families, jobless people, and just plain hard times. But the song isn’t a negative vibe: it says we are looking for a better world right now. And if we are looking, we can surely find it.”
“Shanty Man” is a powerful, driving musical statement, sure to make the listener reflect on the way history tends to repeat itself - over and over again.
