Kim Lightfoot is right on the mark here when she talks about the "mesmerized" effect Gord has on his audience.
I discovered this at the Toronto CBC studio 1968 live performance titled "Wherefore and Why."
I wasn't sure if I'd been hypnotized as well as being mesmerized.
He performed a song I'd never heard called "Face of a Thousand People" and when I left the studio that night I had the complete chorus and a good portion of the lyrics memorized and they are still in my head to this day.
Talk about leaving an indelible mark.

There's this verse in the song that came right back to me when 9/11 happened:

"Today I saw the world again
It seemed the same as yesterday
The splendour of it's ruins and it's shame
It's towers rose against the sky
Reminding all who care to look
That what's been built can be destroyed again."
