After a twenty-year run in the rock and roll world Eric Westbury took a ten-year hiatus to concentrate on his rural Vancouver Island home. He calls this decade his atomic wilderness years and they precipitated his ten new songs on this CD, his third release. His themes are social justice, corporate greed (the bank robbers they all work at the bank), and the environment; As in the inevitable big earthquake that will strike the Island and be an Invitation to the Grave and the land will open up and swallow me (him). So much for the vegetable farm. His voice has a whiskey soaked quality that gives him an authentic road worn quality. Eight backing musicians and produced by Juno award winning Russell Broom.
