High Winds, White Sky is the second studio album from Bruce Cockburn, released in 1971 on the True North label. It was remastered in 2003 by Rounder Records with two bonus tracks recorded live in 1970. The album received a Canadian gold record award in 1986.
In a retrospective review, music critic Thom Jurek, writing for Allmusic, called the album "A remarkably fresh and timeless recording… Overall, however, this album—like Sunwheel Dance that follows it—presents a far more mystical Cockburn. His tenderness and poetic vision are almost pastoral on these early recordings, something that would get burned off and become hard-bitten (if no less romantic and more dramatic) as his music and social vision grew."
