I've avoided this thread since I bought it - I wanted rather instant gratification and got it on pdf, which is rare for me since I prefer to hold a book in my hands.

It was worth it though, I...

Re: NEW BOOK!-ONCE UPON A RED EYE-Life on the road with Gordon Lightfoot-Richard Hari

Re: CRYSTAL GAYLE and Ribbon of Darkness on her new LP

Modern country I don't care much for , but this leans more retro to my ears, so I have no issues with it. I'd be much more bothered if it was a Country Rap version!

Re: What will Gord's new songs be about?

As for song topics, while those are all good suspects to expect, Myself, I'm not sure if I want them to be about them. I think Gord does best when he ranges further.

Re: Wrong Version of EMR Played.

As I said above, if you prefer subsequent derivatives, as long as you still have a nod towards the originals I find no issue. Really they have all have their specific merits.

Re: Cranberries singer goodbye
