Re: Authorized online lightfoot store

And I just ordered the "Solo" CD and an "80 Years Strong" t-shirt. I wish the Richard Harison Book "Once upon a Red Eye: Life on the Road with Gordon Lightfoot" had been available too.

Re: The first time I ever heard Gordon Lightfoot

I can't remember the first time I heard a Gordon Lightfoot song, but it must have been "Sundown" in 1974 when Australian radio stations were playing it constantly. It reached No 4 in Australia. The...

Re: Photos from daughter's visit to "Massey Hall"

Thanks, Char. She said she walked around "several blocks" and got too cold to keep looking. Can't blame her for giving it less priority than I would have.
