"In the rooms of her ice water mansions" is a beautifully poetic phrase because it has more than one possible interpretation, and all of the interpretations add to the richness of the imagery.

You travel to Blackpool, Norfolk, and Shirley in the UK to meet up with other Lightfoot fans, and to play and sing the songs together.

Auctioneer, even tho it's a cover, for the reasons I stated in the unofficial showdown of these two.

I'll repeat, let's compare covers to covers, and Gord's own to his own.

I'm not too fond of the Salute album relative to the others, not that it's a bad album, and I think I hold that against the title cut.
