Further Adventures Of is the eighth studio album by Canadian singer/songwriter Bruce Cockburn. The album was released in 1978 by True North Records. Contrary to information on some websites (e.g. AllMusic.com,[1] ArtistDirect.com,[2] CDUniverse.com,[3] Yahoo.com[4]), the title of the album is not "Further Adventures of Bruce Cockburn". As per Cockburn's official website[5] and the original album cover the title is simply "Further Adventures Of". The album cover displays a picture of a small globe of the Earth after the title, implying that the adventures referred to are those of the planet Earth, not of Cockburn.

In 1996, alternative rock group Primitive Radio Gods had a hit with the song "Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand", but that song is different from the song with nearly the same name on this album.
