If Mr. Lightfoot ever reads these I just want to first give huge thanks to him and wishes for a full recovery. I distinctly remember the first time I heard any of his music. It was "If You Could Read My Mind" played over the radio. This was at Interlochen Arts Academy in northern Michigan...1971. Everyone was talking about his work, especially the Canadian students! I can only describe that moment as some sort of epiphany for me. I was hooked on his musical style on the spot, even as a young girl. There have been so many times I have felt strong connections between my own life and the lyrics he has written. It is almost uncanny. I think that is one reason his work is so wonderful...people can identify with his imagery without it being trite or common. Another interesting thing....whenever I meet somebody who turns out to be a Lightfoot fan, there is a moment of instant kinship and mutual respect. I think if I ever met Mr. Lightfoot in person...I would just have to try hard to compose myself and not stand like a dumbstruck fool. It would be so great to meet him and just shake his hand and say "thanks" for all his superb artistry.

Please chaeck out my cd at cdbaby.com. I've been influenced by Gordon since I was about 6 years old. I fell in love with "if you could read my mind" and have been writing songs and playing on a Martin ever since. I'm 43 now, an architect, and believe my music is worth a listen, if not airplay! I look forward to hearing from anyone who cares to share a kind word or two about my music or others.

I just came across this site and its great reading about Gord. what a phenomenal guy to say it mildly. Listening to all his great lyrics with his music is truly a blessing. By the way, having read about his most recent hospital stay about Dec 5th or so of 2002, i would love to know his prognosis. Living in the Panhandle of Texas,I have never seen Gord in person, but know he has been in the state at some time. how great it is to read about all of you who have. My favorites are Canadian Railroad Triology, and The Way I Feel, of course, as well as many more. Hopefully this email gets somewhere and a response comes around.Reading David James Carlson comments was neat and am curious if you still play gigs of his music. Happy New Year

Hello Gordon Lightfoot, I know and have full faith you are recovering quite well from your stay at hospital. I wish you and your family a happy new year. Your music always made me feel better. You appeared to me about 30 years ago in Montreux festival (Switzerland) and ever since leaving tracks in my mind. God bless you. Francois

Dear Gord: I was sorry to hear of your hospitalization this past summer in Hamilton. I hope you're doing better 'cause I'd love to hear you in concert sometime soon. In the book, "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff", it suggests writing heartfelt letters of appreciation to add beauty to life. I just want you to know how much I've appreciated your music. I have one tape, "Gord's Gold", and it's brought me countless hours of delight and much listening pleasure. People write "soothing" about your music but for me it's more than that...it takes me back to the summer of '85 when I had the chance to live in Whitehorse, Yukon. That summer on the long July weekend, with the Outdoors' Club, I hiked 10 miles in bush along a railroad track to part of the Chilkoot Goldrush Trail that Pierre Berton writes so feelingly about, with Ione Christianson leading (who was a past mayor of Whitehorse and since then the Yukon Commissionaire and now something else important in Ottawa's Parliament...)Anyhow Parks Canada held a music festival there with folk musicians and a yodeler. It was there huddled around a campfire I first heard your songs crooned..."The minstrel of the dawn" and "Softly" and "Beautiful". I often wish I could go back to that weekend. Would you like to join me? What a euphoric sense of beauty. It was one of those absolutely perfect moments of life. Your music will always take me back to a country where ribbons of northern lights dance over a silhouette of purple mountains. Thank you. I'm now a school teacher "settled" in S.W. Ontario, complete with a white picket fence and "2.4" children and I teach in a school where there are Lightfoots who claim they are related to you. If you're ever in the Alvinston area of Ontario, look me up at the Brooke P.S. You're promised a warm, adoring welcome. Anyhow, I wanted to thank you for the beauty you've added to my world through your talent. God bless you, Gord! Sincerely, Sharon

Dear Mr. Lightfoot, As a young native American girl I loved hearing "chippewa" (The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald)in a song. I'm not sure why, but at the time it made me feel special, not knowing completely what the song was about. I was very young (as I've told) and my father use to listen to you all the time. It was almost like seeing him with a cup of coffee in hand - it's what he did. Your music meshed with the type of person he was - he was "rainy day people". My dad was a very poor man because he use to give everything away, even gifts that he had been given, it use to frustrate me when I was younger, but now I'am thankful that I had such a father, such a completely selfless man. He passed away last April 2002. I want to thank you for the gift you have given to me and the rest of the world - your music. A few months back I bought your greatest hits-once I got them home I waited til I was alone--poured myself a cup of coffee and one for my dad and I even put out a cigarette for him. I played "Sundown" as loud as I could get away with, drank my coffee, smoked my dads cigarette and took the air in hand and danced as though he was there dancing with me and it was as though he was. It was a very precious moment for me. Now when ever I want to see my dad I just listen to you and he's right there with me. Thank you. P.S. I pray this finds you well and I hope someday that I will have the pleasure of listening to your melodic stories in person. Respectfully, The Daughter of White Cloud - Neil John DesJarlais Aprill "Elizabeth" Elston Roozh Li Toener Faem -- "Red Thunder Woman"

Great web site! I'm a retired high school Enlish teacher who actually used Lightfoot lyrics and music for years during my 32 year career. I've seen Gord live at Muskfest in Bethlehem, PA, back in the 90s and at the Keswick Theater in Phillie as well. Both performances were wonderful. I have the entire Lightfoot collection in vinyl and CD. I hope Gord's feeling better now. He has no idea just how much he has meant to millions of fans. I am a friend of Bill W. and a rabid Lightfoot fan.

Hope that your recovery is going well. We are praying for you each and every day. Have been fans since '70 or '71. Went over so many times to see you at the "U" (University of Minnesota) and "Northrup Hall". Just made an automatic association between you and that venue. And then there were the State and Orpheum Theatres. Grew up three blocks from Lake Superior and had seen the Edmund Fitzgerald in Marquette, at the iron ore docks. It makes that song seem even more haunting. Again......hope that you are feeling MUCH BETTER. lam

I never knew the meaning of the song wreck of the edmund fitzgerald until recently, I heard a little bit of it when gordon sang it on a station break as I was watching tv. Even though it is based on a true event. I think that it is a beautiful song. My heart goes out to everyone that lost a love one on that day.

I love his music. I love to write poetry because creating an arrangement of words in such a way that you can transfer what you are seeing to others is the highest form of communication available to most people. If you can do that AND help people feel whatyou are feeling, you get a special satisfaction. GL has such a way with words that even his sad songs give me joy. Almost every night, I fall asleep to his music and I must have included, in my selection of his songs, If You Could Read My Mind" almost a thousand times over the last four years. Lately, My favourites have been "Steel Rail Blues" and "Song For A Winter Night". I enjoy many kinds of music as I find music has a profound impact on my happiness. Thank you Mr. Lightfoot for sharing your gift with me.

When I was a kid. I attended Northern Secondary High School. Every day I walked past Gordon Lightfoots house which was on the corner of Mount Pleasant Road and Blythwood Road. He drove a red mustang at the time and every so oftenI would catch him driving along in his car and wave. He wold always flash a smile and wave back. Those were the days when I went to school with Edward Bear and Bob McBride and his younger Brother Danny. Many years later I became a police officer in Toronto and had ocassion to visit his business offices on Davenport road. Now almost retired I live 2 doors away from his business manager. The world shrinks every day. By the way............I'm still a fan!!!

I heard a Gordon Lightfoot song a number of years ago and haven't been able to find it or hear it since. I was wondering if someone could identify it for me. It is a very beautiful song, a soft romantic ballad and has something of the following phrases in it (based on 20 years fo not the best memory): I do believe I heard you talking in your sleep about anything at all. .........I do believe we have a thing or two about anything at all. Chorus with this in it (somwewhat) I wake up to whispers I wake up to find you near me ..... I was not supposed to know.... It's the best that I can do. I know the melody better but the words are so old that I only remember a little. Anyone able to help me determine which song it is. Thanks in advance

If not they would be waiting for him when he is. Just a thought...... Char I would need your e-mail by Sunday November 10, 2002 to be able to print them and either mail/FedEx/UPS them or get them to Barry in person(if possible). I'll post a couple of reminders. Send them to: lightfootfan@rogers.com Char

Dear Mr.Lightfoot, Im sending a greeting from Sweden just to let you know how great your music is. In 1966-68 I lived in Canada, working in Banff.I was 19 years old and came to hear your music.I bought an Lp with me home to Sweden, got married and have three musical sons.One works as a filmphotografer on Tv and one is studing musicproduction.Among all the music they listen to they always come back to your wonderful songs.Im so glad I bought that LP and that my sons sing your songs. Thank you very much and God bless you. Mrs Elfgren

When we heard of Gordon's hospital stay my husband and I were very eager for any information. We saw Mr. Lightfoot's concert in Bradford, Ontario in the summer of 2001. We met him afterwards where our thoughts of what he would be like were all put to rest. Gordon Lightfoot is THE nicest man in the world! From here in Australia we wish him all the best. Get well soon Gordo!!!!!

Get well soon, Gordon Lightfoot. So glad you're making progress. My husband & I have been big fans since the late 1960s. Watching you on t.v. (Tues. evg) on the week of the 50th anniv of CBC television. I think it's in Phoenix (or was it Chilliwack?). I missed seeing you at the Sprague Club on Stanley Street (Montreal) in the sixties but saw you in the early seventies at Place des Arts. Don't go back to work too soon. It sounds like 4 months would be about right... Good luck, Marian (& Phil) Kemp Edmonton

Sorry, I just have to correct one thing and add one more. Tribute to Gordon Lightfoot, I handed to you outside Massey Hall one eve after your performance. It wasn't one of the lyrics I sent to your home. Second thing. I study Tai Chi and one of the weapons used is the fan. This form, though lethal in intent, is extremely beautiful and graceful to watch. The music I use to perform this fan form to is Pussywillow, Cat-tails. It works beautifully with the form.

A familiar story, I discovered your music when I was about 15, I'm now 42. Your words, and music have touched and shaped my life in so many ways. I've written two books and when I lack motivation, it's always your songs I turn to. The lyrical, haunting emotion they carry, and stories they tell, always inspire me. Without knowing it, you have helped me to become who I am in some ways. About 17 years ago I sent some lyrics to your house, which you actually signed for personally. One was entitled Tribute to Gordon Lightfoot. I wonder if you realize how many people you have touched in your life? A Tribute to Gordon Lightfoot You've travelled from shore to shore You've earned your name And earned it well For us, you couldn't have done more You're a proud Canadian A Canadian of whom we are proud Your music and lyrics Have kept my dreams alive And made me able to survive Just knowing there is more to life This is a tribute to your name I hope your spirit stays the same I hope your words still help me get by When the moon rises in the sky Like a minstrel from days of old You put your dreams into words You show us how you're shy, yet bold You share your dreams with others And spin your tales of gold You have given us your visions Of the land and life we share You make all our tomorrows Something about which to care This is a tribute to your songs For all the hope you've given to me And to all others who dream When the sun sets far away And darkness fills the sky. To you Gordon. Your life has definitely been worth living, and we all pray you'll be around for many years to come. You truly are a Canadian treasure and we appreciate you. Cathy Walker

Must have seen you another dozen times since including your concert at Williamsport in April of this year; it was as wonderful as the first!

Dear Gordon, I was born in Cape Breton, then lived in Ottawa but have been in the States since I was six years old. At the age of 15 (1971) I first heard your music. Since then I have been completely addicted to your voice, lyrics and music. I believe I have everything you have ever recorded for sale (including songbook which I love). When I was 20, I turned my father on to your music. He was a RCMP for most of his 20's and was born in New Brunswick. He recently passed away and our family is devastated. I want you to know that the funeral home played "Gord's Gold" at his request throughout the visitations and it brought us all great comfort. Dad slipped away on his carefree highway. I just read in the Fort Lauderdale newspaper about your illness. Have been praying very hard for you and your family. I had tickets to the March 28th concert in Pompano Beach, FL but just found out they were cancelled. I have seen you three times before in Virginia over the years. Please give it everything you have and recover from this illness. The world is not ready to lose you. Love, Debra Davis

When I heard about Mr.Lightfoot being in the hospital, and that he was not in the greatest of states, the first thing I wanted to do was let him know that myself and probably millions of others are thinking of him and wish him and his family nothing but the best. I saw him when he played in Albany NY, and I tell you it was like a dream come true. I have to admit I was not even born when alot of the older songs were released, but the minute I heard him, I was hooked. Everybody pray and think good thoughts for a great artist!!! jlg

Gordon Lightfoot wrote great songs. He had a wonderful voice. He was one of the best singer/songwriter guys to emerge from the '60s through the '70s into the '80s. His songs have meant a lot to me. And now I can't bear to listen to his music or see him in concert as his voice is gone and his songwriting has suffered. It's too sad to see him now so I will turn to the old records released on CDs when I need my fix. After seeing him in concert earlier this year, it was painfully clear to me that at almost 65, he should retire rather than tour as a shadow of what he was. But in his prime, what a fine minstrel of the dawn he was!

Hi - I'm Katrina and I live in Ireland. I have been a big fan of GL since I was 12, and I'll be 36 tomorrow. So that's 2 thirds of my life that I've known and loved this man's music. I've been reading through some of the things that people have written in on the website, and I'm no different to anyone else. Gordon's music has gotten me through a lot of stuff in my life, good and bad, but quite a lot of 'bad'. I went through a phase where I couldn't listen to his songs at all, because there were toooo many memories attached, but in the end one always comes back. Gordon is my favourite singer/songwriter of all time, and it is on my wish list to see him play live, - not an easy one to fulfil as I live in Ireland. Hopefully one day.... The songs Daylight Katy, Sundown, and If You Could Read My Mind have had an enormous impact on my life. There have been times where I felt that GL was my best friend in life, because of his lyrics. That sounds sad, but hey - so goes life at times. It takes a person with a great understanding of life and an understanding of what pain is, to write about intricate emotions. GL has done that with an extraordinary panache. I don't know if this website is orchestrated by a fan or by Gordon himself, but in any case, as Abba once sang "thank you for the music" - it's meant a lot to me over the years. You are number one on my hit-list after all these years! Thank You. (If I won a competition tomorrow and the prize was to meet the one person who has meant a lot in my life, it would be Gordon Lightfoot.) Katrina P.s. Is there any chance of GL doing a European tour? Even one night in Ireland? We live in hope. Our town of Monaghan is twinned with Prince Edward Island - does that swing any weight?

My parents have a story about how, when they were planning their wedding (some 39 or so years ago), they picked up a young hitchhiker on the highway in SW Ontario. In gratitude, he offered to play at their wedding, which they graciously refused. This hitchhiker, of course, was Gordon Lightfoot. BTW, my parents are still married, 39 years later!

I have so often wished I could tell Gordon Lightfoot in person how much his music has meant to me. In 1972, my father gave me and my twin sister "If You Could Read My Mind" as a gift after he and my mom divorced, and we were living with our grandparents. From the very first moment I heard Gordon's voice, I knew his "presence" would always be an important part of my life. Not only did it keep me connected with a dad I missed and yearned to know, but it has given me joy in happy times and comfort in sad ones. I am now 40. Gordon's voice is one of the most beautiful and affecting I've ever heard, and I hope he knows what a difference his talent and life's work has made to so many of us.

Hello everyone: I just had to comment on Gordon Lightfoot and the wonderful legacy that this man has left us. I am a Canadian who now lives in the southern U.S. but my alleigences(spelling?) are still to my country. Gordon, over the years has really epitomized, through his song/verse who we really are as Canadians. I remember so very well the first time that I saw him. It was in a high school of all places in Moncton N.B. in probably about 1963 so needless to say he has really been a huge part of my musical life for many years. I lost one of my daughters to a tragic accident a number of years back and I had the organist play one of Gordon's songs as it so much said who that little girl really was. Gordon, thanks so very much. You are truly an icon and, as far as I'm concerned, a real live Canadian hero.

If you have a chance you have to seee "If you could read my mind" a tribute to Gordon Lightfoot at the Charlottetown Festival in PEI. It was powerful, energetic, and wonderfully captured the lover, creator and troubador of Gordon Lightfoot.

My wife and I still get tears listening to his music and thinking of all the memories, what a companion he has been through the good times and the bad. All his words with such feeling, creating pictures of life and paths to follow.What makes a person view life with such honesty and compasion, and turn it into words that we can all enjoy, and guide our own lives by, he is just another of Gods miracles.

I finally saw Gordon at Massey Hall in Toronto. A great treat! I was wondering how he chooses the songs he will perform? I know he can't sing them all...but I would love to hear 'Mention my name' and 'Stay loose' sometime. These two are extra special for me..my mom used to sing the earlier one to me when I was a wee lad. Thanks for sharing your writing talents with us!

I believe Gordon Lightfoot is one of the most gifted songwriters / lyricists of this generation. Many of his songs leave me thinking, "Gee, I wish I'd written that!" My favorite songs are; Beautiful, Susan's Floor, Only Love Would Know, and the heartbreaking The Circle is Small, from the Endless Wire album. I can't thank you enough for the gift you have given all of us.

I've listened to Gordon since the early 70's. We used to listen on the way to numerous climbs in the White Mountains. We played "Shadows" at our wedding. My favorite is "If You Could Read My Mind". I have about 50 other second favorites! The only other singer/songwriter who compares is John Gorka. Lightfoot will always be my favorite.

I stumbled across this web site looking for "correct" lyrics to The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald. I must say, it is real nice to see so many good comments to and about this man who gave us all great music and memories. Today's music, country and rock, is missing the simple stories that the "classic" music gave us. I think today's artists would do better and have more success if they'd revert back to their roots!

Gordo,I'm so impressed with this site and happy to finally find a way to contact you. I'm sorry to tell you of the death of a friend of yours. His name was Bill Hanson from Traverse City, MI. He knew you in the 1960's. Bill played in a band call THe Kinsmen. They were a backup band for you during the Great Rocky Mountain Folk Tour. Bill was a talented musician,writer, and had the voice from heaven. We were married in 1982 and he spoke many times of you and sang many of your songs to me. Bill passed away on November 3,2001, at the age of 57. He really never pursued his music and I felt that the world missed a lot. He wrote beautiful poetry and lyrics. He had so much appreciation for your talent and kept a book of lyrics, which included many of your songs. I'm not sure that you will remember him,but if you ever knew him, he would have been hard to forget. Please email me. I live in Tallahassee, Fl., home of the FSU Seminoles, where Bill had lived since 1971 until his death.

First of all, my compliments to this site. It is a pleasure to read and see so many thinks about "the man". Gordon Lightfoot to me is the gentle voice of Canada. The country where in the past few years i was visiting family or on holiday in BC. I bought al the records (lp's) of gordon that I could get here in europe. I would have liked to see him perform live in Amsterdam or another major city in the vicinity. But to my knowledgde he never came. So just recently while surfing the site of Cd Now I saw that a DVD Gordon Live in Reno was available and I orderded it forthwith. Now I've just seen it for the second time. In one word it is FANTASTIC. I'm thinking of getting tickets to see him live in Canada at the Massey Hall coming November. If I have the time I will. Allthough I know Gordon good give no greater satisfaction to his fans abroad to visit them and do a couple of shows here in Europe. Keep up the good work

Being 11 years his junior, I grew-up with Gordon Lightfoot's music. In the 60s and 70s he encouraged me as a poet and songwriter. His songs can bring a tear to my eye as quickly as any - as often a tear of joy as of sadness! I had the pleasure of hearing Gordon in concert at Kleinhan's Music Hall in Buffalo, NY in '73 or '74 - a remarkable performance... When I watched his (excellent) Vegas concert on US Public Television recently it brought back memories of hours spent listening-to and learning his songs on an Italian mountaintop during my US Air Force career, my son singing-along with "Carefree Highway" in the car when he could barely talk, and the endless times I have marveled at the honest simplicity and poetic acheivement of "Cherokee Bend", "If You Could Read My Mind", "The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald", "Don Quixote", and "Second Cup of Coffee"... Thanks, Gord, for pouring your heart out on paper and sharing your life, your love, and your music with me! From the other side of Lake Ontario, Your Friend; Mark Henshaw

I've always been a fan of gordon Lightfoot. Coming from a country where American pop (of all shades) is popular, I have foundit difficult to indulge in his music. Most of the salespeople in music stores have never heard of him. My friends from Canada introduced me to his music in 1980. since then, I was hooked. I'm doubly glad too that the site offers the lyrics. Now, I can follow along whenever I play the few tapes I have of his music. thanks and keep up the good work.

It is wonderful to have found this site. Gordon Lightfoot has a way with words that are so inspirational and what a story they tell. My personal favorites are Canadian Railroad Trilogy, Sundown, Carefree highway and The wreck of the Edmound Fitzgerald. I also like rainy day people and about all of his songs that I have heard actually.

Cool website. This is really nice. I was going to make a copy of my Gordan Lightfoot CD for a friend of mine but think better of it. It appears that what I have must be a bootleg copy? it doesn't even show up on your lists of compilations. I have a 3 cd set, but it does not have the GL songs that my husband and I remember from our single days in the 1970's and 1980's - "Carefree Highway" "If You Could Read My Mind" "Sundown" "Rainy Day People" etc. Soooo it looks like I need to go buy some different albums, will be c****ing your web site out later for that (gotta take the 4 year old out for awhile.). Also was disappointed to see the lyrics taken down as I am deaf and never did understand the lyrics - I was always attracted to the melody of GL songs, the band performing itself (low frequency parts of the song). I have to lipread in person so the lyrics tend to get lost by the wayside. But I suppose some legal anal type wrote you nasty email and told you to take the lyrics off "or else" so thinks to those types, I'm out of the loop still. Oh well. This is still a great web site. Thanks for the research that has gone into it and the quality web design making this easy to use!! Cheers! (From Kansas, USA)

It was great to see you again, Gordo, at the concert in Pitman, NJ on April 3. I love the music and love watching Terry Clements play lead guitar. Thanks again for all the great music and I hope to see many more concerts. I'm looking forward to the next CD too (and enjoyed that new song, No Hotel).

Gordon Lightfoot's music is just wonderful, especially the lyrics that are portrayed in his songs. They seem to have much meaning to life and sometimes just takes you away from reality. His guitar playing is unique because the instrument he plays or the way he plays the guitar it seems to have a pleasant ringing sound. Lightfoot's songs also make you visulize what is going on in the song or what surroundings are like at the time he sings the piece. Always a joy to listen to his work. Looking forward this summer to listen and see him again.

Sir Gordon Lightfoot forever been a fan. My older bro had all your '70s 8-tracks so your music touched my soal at a young age . I just finished watching your Live perfomance on M.M.Music. VERY cool!! Your music was obviously ahead of it's time because it is just as great today as it was in the '70s. As a professional club-circuit musician, my all-time favorite Lightfoot cover is, and always has been, Sun Down. I met your son Fred a few times in the '80s through a mutual friend (we saw a Rush concert together at Varsity Stadium in Toronto Sept '79) Great to see you still rockin'on!

I lived in the state of Michigan when the Edmund Fitzgerald went down in Lake Superior. I was 15 years old when that happened and of course being around those lakes are really amazing during the winter seasons. The song came out and that is all that the people in our neighborhood listened to. What is really amazing that I moved to Florida in 1979, well in 1995 I happened to be on vacation taking my daughter to White Fish Point to see the Shipwreck Museum when to our suprise they were brining the bell up from the Edmund Fitzgerald. It is really something to be so close to a historical happening as the ship going down and being at the museum when they bought the bell up. Thank Mr. Lightfoot for memoralizing such a happening and for letting the world know that those lakes are a force to be wreckened with. Again thank you!!!

Growing up I can remember my aunt and uncle telling stories of going to see Gordy Lightfoot in the coffee houses popular during those times in Toronto's Yorkville. I began listening to his music at a very young age when my dad brought home Sunday Concert. His music sent me places and over the years I have derived much solace and peace from his songs. Great memories were made growing up at our cottage in northern Ontario with my brother singing Gordon's songs around the campfire. One day I will never forget was the first time I went to see him live at Massey Hall. When he sang Canadian Railroad Trilogy my mother and I cried. It was an incredible experience. He truly is a Canadian icon and we are lucky to have him. I'll listen to his music forever. Thank you Mr. Lightfoot.

The first time I heard The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald was in the car on the way up north on NY Rte 12 to a friend's camp near the St Lawrence Seaway. The radio station was faint (a.m. back then) and I couldn't catch all the lyrics, just that it was about a shipwreck of some sort. A couple days later, we were on a tour boat in the shipping channel in the Seaway when the rhythm of our boat on the water and the massive size of the freighters passing by brought the song back to my mind. I couldn't even remember the name of the ship in the song, so I substituted a name I saw on one of the "boats" The Sir Dennis Lowson. (It hsd the same number of syllables). When I found out that the song turned out to be about one of these type of freighter, my imagination was literally captured. As a cool coincidence, I read a book about the wreck that told how one of the crew members of the Fitz had a friend or relation (I can't remember which now) who was a crew member on the Sir Dennis Lowson. What hooked me as a Lightfoot fan was how the music behind the masterfully poetic lyrics captured the feel of the subject matter. His poetry and musicianship has continued to be a steady source of pleasure and inspiration.

Gordon: Thanks for signing the old Conn guitar for me one rainy April evening in Tacoma,Wa. at the Temple theater about two blocks from where I learned to play Lightfoot tunes about twenty five years ago in Wrights Park.Our paths have crossed in your songs many times.I want you to know I keep them alive at open mics and random free fall performances near the campfire.From Softly to 8th ave affair.Richard Bach once wrote...Some of my best friends are people I've never met.You've been a best friend for many years...I'm glad I got the chance to finally meet you and shake your hand.

I'm 34 now, born and brought up in England, but have enjoyed Gordon Lightfoot's music since my mother introduced me to it in the very early '70's - I must have been about five or six years old when I first heard it. Listening to 'If You Could Read My Mind' (that and Michelle Shocked's album 'The Texas Campfire Tapes') inspired me to learn how to sing and play guitar by ear because I STILL can't read musical notation and TAB is a mystery to me as well ! Beautiful music, poetically brilliant.

Been listening since 1969. To me the best stretch of records ever put out by anyone was Lightfoot from If You Could Read My Mind through Summertime Dream, inclusive. My favorite song (at least this month) is 'Seven Island Suite'. Does anyone agree? Last concert was at Waterloo Village in the early 1980's. I'll get to another one someday. I just hope he keeps touring long enough for that to happen. Later.

I'm forever grateful to my brother, ten years my senior, who introduced me to Gordon when I was only 15 years old; he said take a listen to the last of the great troubadours. Thirty years later I'm still listening. In the late 70's my sister in laws and I attended a benefit concert given by Gordon Lightfoot, Dave Mason and Harry Chapin at the Nassau Colliseum on Long Island. After the concert, we went down a staircase, which we thought would lead us out of the building, suddenly we were backstage hanging out with Gordon. He was very gracious to us despite the fact that our excitment bordered on hysteria. He shared info about his upcoming album not yet released, Endless Wire. He was very kind. The last time I saw Gordon was in the early 80's at Westbury Music Fair. His performance that night was truly sublime.

As I told you.I learned to play that old guitar 25 years ago two blocks from where you performed.The songs you have written and sang are like the stories of my life.I still play them at open mics in my hometown. From Carefree highway to 4th ave affair.We have been in the same places,perhaps at the same.Thanks again. This Conn does only Lightfoot Tunes. Randy

Just to share.Maybe I'm crazy,I love all gordons music but as far as albums SHADOWS is my favorite.I also bought the SONGBOOK album,it was released the same day he was in concert in Santa Barbara,Calif. that me and my wife went to.I took the CD set with me and we actually had seats in the front row. Try as I could I could not make eye contact with him.This concert being in an old classic theatre, if you were in the front row you got out last.Opting for the side exits we went out a side door and ran into Terry Clements smokeing a cigar I approached him and showing him the SONGBOOK CD asked him if he would take it in and get it autographed for us.He said the band had not seen the box set yet so he commencesto pull all the CDs and hard back book out and look at it under a small light over the door.Finally he put it all back together,hands it back to me and says come with me you can ask him yourself!we intered the back of the theater into an aery where a small party was set up.We were invited to beverages and liquid refreshments.We were then told he would be in shortly there were about twenty people there.Itookthis time to take the little hard back book out of the CD set and had all his band members sign it,by then the real GORDON LIGHTFOOT came into the room,I am 49years old and I was shaking like a little kid!.He signed a couple autographs then looked at me,stuck his hand out and said "Hi I'm GORDON LIGHTFOOT"as he shook my hand.While he was shaking my hand all I could say was I'm Ed and I would like to thank you for all the wonderfull music he had given all of us fans over the years.I then said said humbly that there were other people wanting to talk to him and started to pull my hand from his.He has quite a grip,he said"Hold on partner there is not that many people here we can talk a little"then he let go of my hand.I introduced my wife.Then I told him a story I had kept inside myself for a long time.On my birthday 4-13-70 I turned 20 years old and there was a retired cruse ship anchored off the harbor where I lived.This particular day we had gale force winds,the ship drug anchor and went aground on the north jetty of the harbor.it remained there for a couple of years while the powers of tried to figure out what to do with it.Its position created one of the finest surfing spots on the coast.There was a lot of salvage work going on and I saw the life boats in our harbor,the name of the shis was the BAHAMA STAR anyone remember the song Ballad OF The Yarmouth Castle? If you listen to this song you'll hear that the Bahama Star was the first ship on the scene of theYarmouth Castle as it burned.Mr. Lightfoot said 'your a surfer" I said yea,he said someone had sent him some pictures of the ship.Then said"I don't think I've ever met a surfer.by then I think I had talked to him for a half hour,we started to leave and he pointed to our songbook collection and said"Did you want me to sign that?"I had forgot,I had everyones autograph but his! then he signed it.The night of my life!

Gordon Lightfoot's music has helped to forge my soul. When I couldn't express myself, his words and his music took over and expressed everything for me. His music was with me throughout every period of my life, matching music to my mood. I remember the first time I heard one of his songs, I was three and totally transfixed. Thirty years later, I still can't stop breathing it in. Thank you Gordon, for sharing pieces of yourself with your fans. -Moonforest-

Hey Gordon- I am a Captain of a ship almost identical to the Edmund Fitzerald. After one of my crewmen made me listen to the song, everytime I hear it my heart starts to pound. I honetly have never heard a more emotional song than that. Just the other day we were bringing a load of iron ore(how ironic) up from south carolina to the tip of maonr, all the way there I had that song playing in my wheelhouse. Gordon-you are truly one of the greatest singers in the world. God Bless you.

In 1970, when I was a freshman in college,Gordon Lightfoot became my new mountain music. That summer, If You Could Read My Mind was on the jukebox where I bought patty melts when I was flush. I quickly memorized the song, relishing that my pitch was the same as the singer. He seemed to combine the traditions of early folk music with a solo voice that both celebrated and lamented the solitary condition. Furthermore, unlike many 60's folk groups, his were not the recycled songs of earlier folk quartets, doling out homogenized themes. He wrote them himself. So the songs exhibited contemporary themes of isolation, departure and getaway in an ever more individualistic and fashion, written from his personal experience. His music also evoked familiar western textures: a chilly wind against a worn jean jacket, hard work done with old buckskin gloves, and a crackling fire warming the front of your plaid flannel shirt. His music became my anthem.

As a postscript to my previous entry, I heard a radio interview many years later where Gordon explained the pressures and problems that lead to the Saratoga Springs incident. He also said he went into rehab. I also finally cleaned up my act and have been substance free for a couple of years. I'm not an advocate, but I'm still amazed that I don't miss it and can still play my axe with no guilt!!

I was looking for the lyric for Circle of Steel and came upon this site. I've appreciated GL's music since the first time I heard PPM's version of Early Morning Rain. I was the first one on my block to buy his first album. His second album kind of turned me off by what I perceived was overproduction(strings and such). I was such a purest in those days. My faith was restored by "Back Here On Earth" and I was a hooked for life. The first live performance was at the Bitter End in Greenwich Village and the song "Cold Hands From New York" my first of many favorites. I was also on hand the time he broke down and failed to finish the gig at Saratoga Springs. They offered to give refunds but I opted not to. I was usually too stoned or broke to see him live but taught myself 8 chords or so and started writing songs for myself and the carnal pleasures they sometimes brought. I guess I can thank him for that. I often think he wrote "Second Cup Of Coffee" for or about me. Anyway, thanks for the memories and see you again sometime.

I've been a GL fan for 30 years now, and a real fan I was during the 70's. His music hit me so hard in 1972 (I think it was "Read my mind")while in the throws of huge personal turmoil (romance related, of course), and I was hooked. My outlook on life improved year-by-year through the 70's, but I still was a steadfast fan, loving all his albums & attending concerts. When I got married in '82, for some reason I kinda forgot that I liked his music. Maybe it was that in the back of my mind I related the GL songs to some of the turmoil I had gone through. My turntable (what's that????) kinda fell into disuse in general, as I started raising a family, which has a big impact! But then this Christmas, my wife gave me the "United Artists Collection" CD and suggested we go to one of his concerts this spring, and she's not even a fan! Did I marry well or what? So, after purchasing a couple more CD's (to start with), I'm back at it! I'm so amazed, reviewing his work critically as I can now, how good his voice was (is?), & his "ax" handling abilities. And then there's those lyrics....they have me hooked all over again. Canadians, you've a national treasure in that man. He may not have made it as big down here in the States as the glitzy & loud guys of his day, but that only speaks to the poor tastes of the American populace.

Have enjoyed Gord's music since 1966 when I was a freshman at McGill University. Followed his concert tours all over the U.S. while I was in the military during the 1970's. Saw him perform quite a bit in California. His concerts were always "perfect". Never too loud, always in tune, music impeccably played by him and his sidemen,and he rarely shared the stage with any other act. (once in Norfolk,Va he performed at "Scope" along with Leon Redbone..I was absolutely appalled!) The best concerts had to be the legendary Massey Hall gigs however. Nothing compares! One song he used to do which I have never seen on any of his recordings was called "Farewell to Nova Scotia". Does anyone have this song? I was hoping it would surface on "Songbook", but it didn't. My favorites would be too many to mention..but a few spring to mind..Beautiful, Song For a Winter's Night (a gem), Circle is Small, Saturday Clothes (remember that one?)Last Time I Saw Her Face. Many compare him to Bob Dylan..the biggest difference is that Gord can sing, he is an excellent musician, his lyrics are relevant, and his songs are beautifully crafted..in other words, there is absolutely NO COMARISON between the two..in my humble opinion.

Good Day All Pleased to see the room is still going, I recently received "Songbook" as a gift and was quite excited. I have approximately 19 record albums in various stages of depreciation and over the last few years I've been neglecting them and had lost exposure to many of the great songs of the earlier years. The "Songbook" collection, in my view, is a well rounded "sampling", if you will, of Gorden's career of songwriting with many of the more well known as well as some of the obscure selections. It is especially enjoyable to hear such tunes as CAN'T DEPEND ON LOVE, HI'WAY SONGS, ALL THE LOVELY LADIES, OLD DAN'S RECORDS, POOR LITTLE ALISON and numerous others without the inherent scratching and skipping of the old LPs. This boxset, along with the earlier "Classic Lightfoot" collection, which I also have on CD provide well rounded exposure to Lightfoot without having to dust off and fire up the turntable.
